Unearthed Update: Battle Backgrounds Implemented

Just a quick update for all of you peoples who have been asking me about Unearthed. All of the battle backgrounds have be integrated into Unearthed, and I have assigned them to individual enemy groups.

Almost every single one of these enemies has a new battle sprite made by either Messianic or Artemis251, and most use at least one new ability that...
