max stat values have been added per promotion value.
double promo: 50 single promo: 30 non promo: 30
temple donations now have an increased boost chance based on the amount in increments of 100, 101-500, and 501-1000
they can also push stats beyond the max cap by +1 +3 or +5
so a double promoted warrior who donates 1,000 gold has a chance to have a max stat increase of 55 rather than the capped value of 50
double promotion is active with the following class names:
added 'help items' and all commands from that help listing are active
2 new classes have had hooks put in the code but are unavailable for now but may be seen by certain options, they are Mystic and Monk.
these will not be available til the 2nd major release.
