Patch 3.3.0

Wyrmsun 3.3.0 is now online!

Most notable amongst the changes are a number of AI improvements, as well as the addition of the Palisade (weaker and cheaper wall that costs lumber instead of stone), the Legionary, several Norse structures and the Norse Swordsman.

Another important change is that units such as priests now start off with zero mana (and slowly recover it as usual), so that newly recruited priests and heroes aren't capable of casting a plethora of spells right off the bat.

Enjoy!
