Mechanics and other updates

Here are some quick updates from the tiny document that handles mechanics. 

1) Thrown weapons now do 2 damage to the torso and all limbs. This is to make up for the limited range and use vs damage output.

2) Experience point growth has been clarified since it conflicted on two pages on the web page (a 2016 page and a 2017 page). It has been clarified in the rules document.
