I've got a couple big changes coming up for the next update. First and foremost. Relocalized is getting a mixed case name hack courtesy of Regrs.
The other thing is a potential improvement with spell descriptions. One of the things I did with Relocalized was to add more flavor to spell descriptions by elaborating on the original Japanese ones. One of the changes I intended to make for World of Balance was to eschew the flavorful descriptions in favor of statistical ones. However, the system that I came up with is pretty space efficient so I have room for some truncated spell descriptions.
The descriptions are limited to 43 characters and that's before adding in the statistical info. So these descriptions aren't exactly Shakespeare but they are still loosely based on the original descriptions. Let me know what you guys think about the spell changes and the descriptions. Also, note that these descriptions are for World of Balance which incorporates some major gameplay changes besides outside the scope of Relocalized such as new spells or changes within existing spells. These changes are provided only as examples and will not be incorporated into Relocalized.
