Castle fight 1.13 changelog

This is mainly a bugfix and balance patch. However, some additions were made: The fixed income, unique races and permanent fog of war modes offer new strategies and are experiments how the game can be improved with new ideas. Bots are now better mates since they build behind the castle and don't crash if they are undead. However, keep in mind that the castle was weakened and thus doesn't have such big tanking capabilities anymore. Most known bugs were fixed and most balance issues were addressed. Read the full changelog or just try out the new version.
