- Introduce shops to sell unneeded 4th quest cloaks
- Introduce shops to sell unneeded 5th quest items

- Fix Dragonscale Belt deleting at cleanup even though it lacked Delete@Cleanup flag.

1.2.4.2 2020-06-05

- Litter control: ice wizard doesn't drop frost sceptre.
- Make greater pressure points better than pressure points.
