Sil-Q 1.5 finally released

Thanks to everyone who has been instrumental in helping bring this to fruition, but especially:
- MicroChasm, for the tileset
- backwardsEric, for the Mac support
- wobbly, for much excellent game balance advice

The changelist is substantial and linked from the release.

Release with link to changelog is at https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q/releases/tag/v1.5.0, Windows binaries are at https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q/r...l-Q.v1.5.0.zip.

Here's a thematic question:
Smithing can be done in absence of light. Should smithing ever depend on light? Are there Simarillon references that require light or even sunlight to smith properly? Why did I ask? I am putting the Smithing meta-game in the IRL context. i.e. How well can people craft items if "in the dark?"

Firing up the forge provides light, even in-game

Not sure if this is working as designed or not but I noticed that weapons of Final Rest don't provided any bonuses for vampires. Is this supposed to be that way?

I suspect this is because vampires are not undead in Sil and Sil-Q.

Welcome to the Tolkien vampire rabbithole!

Tolkien's vampires and werewolves don't have much in common with the vampires and werewolves of popular myth.

Tolkien's werewolves are not humans who transform into wolves, but "fell beasts inhabited by dreadful spirits".

Vampires are discussed more rarely, and the only vampire who is mentioned by name is Thuringwethil, a batlike skinchanger who may have been a Maia. Sauron himself however takes vampire form to flee after a confrontation with Luthien and Huan.

There is finally now a fixed 1.5.0 version on angband.live, besides the version 'nightly' which is updated by Quirk
