Update 4 for A Bastard's Tale

Balance changes to A Bastard's Tale.

Primary, the last boss been updated so it will be harder to exploit a previous weakness.

Furthermore, some minor speed changes to the attacks of several enemies on level 2 and 3.

Finally, thanks the community for all your great support!
