keeps refreshing the duration by killing new things.

level of Evocations gives +0.5 mp; only the highest of the skill bonuses
from Evo, Invo, and Spellcasting is used, as before. That total is
multiplied by modifiers like racial modifier and mutations, and then

rotted mp is subtracted, and then things continue as they did before.

This is a speculative balance change, and it seems likely that more balance
adjustments will be needed. Let's see how this goes!

For reference, a human wizard starts with 3 mp ((XL 1 + 3 Spl) * 0.9) and
a deep elf wizard starts with 6 mp ((XL 1 + 4.4 Spl) * 1.3 * 0.9). This
is likely going to compel book starts to train Spellcasting earlier than
they would have before.

Merge unborn into death knights

Unborn were thematically a fairly weird remnant of monster deep dwarves. Death
knights now have spell set of agony, haunt, and injury mirror, taking the more
noticeable spells from the two spell sets and dropping a number of mostly
insignificant ones. Their entire spell set is also changed to be priestly,
rather than having a mix of wizard and priest spells as unborn used to
(they could also easily be reflavoured as spellcasters like hell knights and
necromancers instead, but having a mix of both just seems confusing, even
with spell types now displayed on xv).
