11.14.09: BIG Update
-Re-hauled CBS. Deleted/Added many variables concerning the CBS. New Layout and graphics.
-ACT Icons now move smoothly across the ACT gauge.
-ACT Damage now actually matters and can easily be distinguished by.
-CBS can handle up to 5 monsters at one time and each of those monsters are fully functional.
-Added ACT Stun system. After taking ACT damage a player cannot gain ACT for a small period of time.
-Added MP System. MP can be used as costs for Elemation/Techs instead of AP. MP however is much harder to acquire unlike AP. After resting all characters start with 100% Health, 0AP but 100MP.
-Techs are now called Elemations and Specs are now called Phases.
-Revised, Renamed, and balanced all currently planned Elemations, Phases & Talents.... again.
-New algorithms for damage and elemations.
-Recoded the Targeting System. It is now much more practical.
-Added complete and functional Buff/Debuff system (very similar to World of Warcrafts).
-Functional CBS Item Menu, and Status Menu.
-Movement now actually makes sense and is 100% functional and done.
-More character "idle/stance" animations during battle.
-Jin's Dasher move and Shori's First Aid move are now functional.
-Strengthened Healing across the board as healing was vastly underpowered compared to everything else.
-Changed Accuracy/Hit Algorithms.
-Fixed TONS of other bugs within Elemation events.
-Redone most of the "Move Event" commands in events so they now look more fresh
-Finalized all damage algorithms and cleaned its events. HIT or accuracy now matters if you want to strike fast foes. Monsters HP and DEF has been buffed in account of new algorithms.
-ACT Damage done to individuals while casting has been nerfed somewhat.
-Tyler now has the proper animations and algorithms when he attacks from the back row.
-Finished Concussive Shot, making Human Shori the first FULLY done character and demo/game ready.
-Fixed alot of hidden CBS bugs.

-All ciphers are now functional.

-Brand spankin' new sprite of Shori ENTIRELY done by me. (I am extremely proud of this as it took me a very long time. =1 week=)

-Updated Kenjis design. Kenji is now named Ryle.
-New Music, currently deciding between an all MP3 soundtrack or an all MIDI soundtrack.

2.09.09: Redone and updated many pictures including text; tech info; titles; etc..

2.07.09: CIPHER system 100% complete!
All ciphers increases a players stats by a percentage rather then a flat increase. With this, all ciphers you get early on will still be useful come towards the end of the game. Ciphers are broken down between Weapon and Armor Ciphers. Some characters can equip 2 weapon and 2 Armor Ciphers while others can equip 4 weapon ciphers. Unfortunately, for balancing purposes you cannot equip 2 of the exact same ciphers. (Example: 4 Strength Ciphers = 100% increase of Strength which will practically one shot alot of foes.) There are a total of 42 different ciphers in the game. (14 Weapon Ciphers; 14 Armor Ciphers; 14 Special Ciphers.)
