[fixing and changing some chapters]


It seems that you do not recover from fight to fight. This may be intended, but it means that your mages essentially get a single chapter or two of use before they are meat shields.
The failure condition seems to procc randomly upon character death- not just when Stein dies. Stein can die and sometimes it doesn’t happen at all.
Healers being able to heal themselves is very nice.
