stone-soup: Update to 0.24

Stone Soup 0.24 (20191024)

* Vampire species simplified
* Thrown weapons streamlined
* Fedhas reimagined
* Sif Muna reworked

Branches, Environment
* Incremental pregeneration:
  - This mode generates the dungeon in a stable order for all games regardless
    of the path taken by the player, meaning that the behavior of seeds for
    online and offline games should now be the same.
  - Games using the same seed will see the same dungeon if they are
    incrementally pregenerated without requiring the long initial generation
    time of full pregeneration as introduced in 0.23.
  - Incremental pregeneration is the default mode for new games.
  - Servers can now enable seed selection without heavy CPU cost.
* A Trove map requiring many uses of digging has been removed.
* Identification scrolls are no longer used as a potential Trove cost.
* Transporters in vaults now correctly place in the Abyss.
* Fog generation in the Desolation of Salt portal now happens far less often
  per turn, greatly reducing slowdown from high CPU usage.
* Random traps no longer place under items placed by vaults.

* Formicids can now use their dig ability on diggable statues.
* Manticore barbs now can only be picked out if the player can move, isn't
  confused, and isn't asleep.
* Net traps now always trigger when the player steps on them.
* Vampiric weapons no longer have a hunger cost upon wield.
* Vampire simplification: Player vampires no longer eat or drink blood, and
  have exactly two blood states.
  - Alive: Regenerates quickly, normal HP modifier, no undead bonuses, no
    batform, can transform and berserk normally.
  - Bloodless: No regeneration with monsters in sight, -20% HP, stealth bonus,
    undead resistances, batform, no other transformations or berserk.
  - Blood states are transitioned by an ability which costs delay; becoming
    bloodless incurs no penalty, becoming alive causes a temporary frail
  - Bat form causes stat drain.

* Fedhas reimagined:
  - Piety is gained exclusively from kills instead of through corpse decay.
  - Fedhas abilities now create plant allies directly as temporary summons
    instead of creating permanent allies using plants. All abilities cost
    piety instead of food.
  - New abilities:
    * 2*: Active 'Wall of Briars' ability to surround the player with briar
          patches. Hostile monsters will attack briars to reach you, taking
    * 3*: Active 'Grow Ballistomycete' ability to place a ballistomycete at
          any location within radius 2. The ballistomycete will fire spores
          that seek out foes and make a 1-radius damaging explosion that
          additionally confuses living creatures.
    * 4*: Active 'Overgrow' ability to destroy any non-permarock walls in a
          3x3 area, replacing them with plant allies, mostly wandering
          mushrooms or burning bushes and sometimes ballistomycetes or oklob
    * 5*: Active 'Grow Oklob' ability to place an oklob plant at any location
          within radius 2.
  - Fedhas no longer hates any necromancy spells, and allows worship by undead
  - Removed abilities: Fungal Bloom, Reproduction, Growth, Evolution, Rain.
* Sif Muna reworked:
  - Piety gain is exclusively from kills.
  - 'Channel Energy' is available at 1* piety instead of 3*.
  - 'Forget Spell' is available at 3* piety instead of 4*.
  - New 4* 'Divine Exegesis' ability to cast any spell in your library
    regardless of skill training. Receives a spell-power bonus based on
    Invocations skill of 1.5 times the spell-power received from equivalent
    levels of training in the spell's schools.
  - The Divine Energy ability and Sif's miscast protection are removed.
* Trog and Okawaru now can gift unbranded boomerangs and javelins.
* Jiyva's Slimify ability now works properly on skeletons, zombies and
* Torment can now trigger Jiyva jelly spawns and Xom butterfly spawns.

  - Tomahawks are renamed to boomerangs and always return.
  - Javelins always penetrate.
  - Steel and silver are merged into a single brand, called silver. Silver
    ammunition applies the maximum of vorpal bonus damage and the old silver
    damage bonus.

    brands for tomahawks and javelins.

* Monster AC, EV, MR, MaxHP, and descriptions are now exposed in the CLua

  that considers the time of each turn.
