March Update: The Journal

The Journal infrastructure and UI is there. Much of the actual content is done thanks to some judicious calls to log FlavourText events and NpcSpeech events to the journal. Quests remain, but I'm leaving it that way for a future Quests rework.

The Journal could also use the searchability, maybe the ability to add your own notes, maybe integration with the Map. Again, for the future.

Next up is Afflictions. Curses, Poisons and Diseases will hopefully become a lot more interesting.

Here's a Journal screenshot, right after having started the game.
Function over form for this feature, methinks.
