Re: Perception and Natural Armour (Waba)10 Mar 2015

Follow-up on last weekend's changes:

1. Bears and smiters will now find gaps and weaknesses in their opponents'
   armour like everyone else. 'Weapon skill' of NEWS 2479 should read 'general
   warrior knowledge' for Bears.

2. I fixed a long-standing rounding error in 'consider', which now behaves as
   you would expect regarding level comparison.

Lastly, when hitting with a hybrid weapon like the halberd (part stabbing, part
cleaving), its properties are averaged.
