Roseblight v1.1.0 - The Blind Ruins Update

"Have you been to the Silver Ruins? Apparently it's what remains of a society that was here long before we were even a thing. Some people say there's 'something' behind the giant door, like a powerful beast or something. Heh. Yeah, right."

The Blind Ruins Update is the first major update for Roseblight, featuring a new combat system, a new area to explore, and a whole lot of improvements to the game.

I've been working on the update for the past 2-3 months or so, and I'm looking forward to people enjoying it!
