Praying to gods

It looks that from now on the latest version(like 0.4.5) will be available in friend Ethaniel's homepage(files) ,at least until papaki homepage is uploaded.
There are some things to fix too but it's time to add the basic gods, when you pray there will be 5-10 gods to choose. Selecting a god there is a chance that you will be heared,so you will a list of spells to cast, these spells are given from the specific god. There are 9 main gods and 9 small gods that you can find in game. Every god follow an order, these are the combinations(9):
lawful good,lawful neutral,lawful evil,neutral good,true neutral,neutral evil,chaotic good,chaotic neutral,chaotic evil.
Smalls gods also follow an order, so if you accept an small god with same order with an excisting, the old will be replaced from the new one. Small gods may be saints(good), demons(evil), nymphs(neutral) and others...
When you pray your order will be used for the selection of proper gods, if your goodness or law is same with a god,then he/she is added in the available list. The problem is that there aren't ennough spells, but don't worry,I'll make them fast. So..just wait..

Selling items

I have to fix dozens of stupid bugs like
-bloody tiles may erase doors or stairs
-magic creatures shall not bleed
-humans leave 'human bones" instead of just "bones"

Anyway, made the selling system with merchant, the cost to buy is the known and unchanged, but when you sell merchant may offer 2 values; 1/3 of cost or 2/3 of cost. The most Bargain you have most chance to offer 2/3. But denying offers could be tricky so made this disavdantage; if you denie an offer, the merchant will not offer any other 2/3 gold to buy as long you keep dialog box open and also loose 1 xp from Bargain and Sociality, so if you wanna sell something it's not good to denie offers. Sometime I'll make Bargain work with buying and not selling(or both) but for now works ok.
Question; is there anyone who read this shit? :P
