Degrees of Lewdity version

This update adds a confessional to the temple, where the sinful can find forgiveness. It also lets temple initiates ascend in rank, unlocking more of the temple's secrets, and allowing them to receive the confessions of others.

To ascend in rank, initiates must pass through a new trial, an ancient vigil. Most can't endure the night. Those who do can make the temple their home, but have new duties. There are secrets too, and not all are readily revealed, even to the ascended.

The island has been cleaned up and rebalanced. The build menu is a lot nicer, and the islanders now carry more appropriate objects for those with skulduggerous hands. They also no longer report the PC's use of pepper spray to the police!

Huge thanks to PurityGuy for the confessional, and to all the contributors for their work! This is the first update in a long time that's met my personal deadline, and it's a wonderful feeling. There's more to come for the temple, and the PC's duties there. Next update will flesh out Captain Zephyr and their merry band. Their ship should provide a more straightforward way to reach the island. Expect it in a month!

Happy Halloween!

Edit: Updated to, fixing bugs and adding a custom notes tab to the journal.
Edit 2: Updated to, fixing more bugs.
