removed bonus experience for healing and limb regrowth

When  Aug 1 2020 5:42 PM
Description  completely disabled any form of bonus experience for performing healing or limb regeneration effects on others.
Reason  history of abuse from players (yes including myself). while the notion of having completely passive methods of play is great, i don't agree with creation of those methods being highly scriptable options and pathways for the super experienced player and instead be a more complex and involved form of gameplay overall (such as through a combination of supporting systems like challenges, quests and so forth).
Result  this form of reward was highly abusable and the healing factor alone should be the primary and only reward for such effects.

a few content bug fixes

When  Aug 1 2020 3:53 PM
Description  Stopped the kick maneuver from appearing in attack list (even if it did nothing) on races with no legs. Fixed Sperm Flower artifact from showing up unidentifed as 'a diamond', now shows as 'a diamond flower', made Shoggoth compound eye organ use compound eye material instead of regular eye material.
Reason  Kick was in my Bezhuldaar's attack list and it annoyed me, the sperm flower was a diamond but not a gem, and compound eyes are not normal eyes.
Result  Kick no longer shows up erroneously, the sperm flower is now a flower, shoggoths can grow actual compound eyes

Kazarak QoL changes

Description  Kazarak now regen sp/end/hp at the pillar. This will become a conditional thing sometime in the future but for now, this is needed in todays LS. Kazarak that overconsume magic items will have the excess energy sent directly to their charges with no conversion loss
Reason  Nobody played Kazarak. Partially due to the high skill cap, partially due to the high game knowledge requirements, and partially due to the mechanics not aging well. These are some minor QoL changes that should hopefully encourage some players to give them a try
Result  Kazarak now regen sp/hp/end at the pillar again. Consuming more magic than you have sp will send the additional energy to your charges with no conversion loss (why were we encouraging command spam?).
