This is another major game mechanic brought to you by Rabidwolf9. I really enjoy this mechanic. It seems like it'd be best used for weapon special attacks. I'll probably actually end up using this in one way or another. It'd be really cool to increase stamina with level and have different weapons drain stamina at different amounts or have certain weapons slow the rate of recovery. There are so many ways to play with this and make your game unique that it becomes hard not to use it. It might actually be my new favorite thing to play with.

Rabidwolf included two special things stamina can do. The first thing is called burst mode which increases attack speed for a short time. I mean a really short time. Maybe up to four swings if you're really prepared. You can also sacrifice all your stamina to heal yourself by two points. It's not much but it's not something you can use while fighting because then you'll have low stamina and your attack speed will be decreased.

Stamina is shown through text in the bottom left part of the screen. It's not the most aesthetically pleasing way to present itself, but it does the trick(like a magician in a onesie).

This file comes with an example dmod and it might be the first time I've ever seen an example dmod provide a map of its area. Rabidwolf does a good job of explaining his files and how to install them. I think this is a good file with lots of room for expansion.
