existing descriptions (Sikhism has always been kind of funky, that's
fixed now) and included Norse as a desired religion.

in-game private messaging system. The compose screen now lets you carbon
copy up to 25 other ruler names into your message. The inbox now allows
you to mass delete messages and will now display 20 messages at a time
instead of 5.
Set a limit
of 200 on the number of in-game private messages a member can send in a
day. This is to help prevent spam in the game and help fight against
mass script attacks. The messaging system will be revised in the coming
weeks and this number can be adjusted if needed at that time.

added image verifications when sending and responding to in-game private

I added a
secret trade option that forfeits any team bonuses but allows the trades
to become immune to team sanctions. It is important to note that once a
sanction has been placed against a nation no one from the sanctioning
team will be allowed to trade with it, secret or not, so secret trade
