Updates 04.12.20

Post by Memoria »

Without further ado, Khy'eras' latest and most anticipated updated is here! I want to thank all of you for being patient with me while I worked on these changes. I had intended to get everything out much sooner, but sometimes other life tasks get in the way. I think the wait will be worth it though and I hope you all enjoy the new additions.

If you find any errors or inconsistencies, please submit feedback as needed.
