I've rejigged the layout of the ever-popular board summary page. You'll now find that every board has been categorised into one of a small number of categories, for your pleasure and convenience!

I have changed the way the 'struggle to hold' informs work, on the grounds that they were somewhat inconsistent and did not give meaningful feedback. The message was designed to show you when you were using a weapon (or a pair of weapons) that were going to give you combat penalties.
