Dawn of Corruption 0.6.2 Release Notes

Hello everyone!

This months release is about Corruption in a lot of ways. 

I've wanted to add endings and twists to the games main gameplay loop using corruption for a while now, and I think this new build is gonna be a really cool step towards that goal.

Basically, if you reach very high corruption values, you'll trigger an event when coming back to the village where you'll be denied entry. 

From this point you can either stay in exile until your corruption lowers, or fight your way in. 

If you leave, he main hub would change to small encampment in the Barrens (featuring amazing art by Winty https://www.furaffinity.net/user/wintech3112/ ). 

If you fight, this leads to an ending of cataclysmic proportions.

I've also thinking about tweaking how Corruption is applied in general. 

Since it now lowers every day, I'm thinking that receiving Corruption should work in a similar way. 

Instead of just getting a flat amount of corruption after story events, you'd get an ability that will increase your Corruption for a few days. 

Also, big thanks to Jagaz and Draco for helping with the writing on this one <3
