Great to see your progress! It must have been hard to undo so much of what you had made.

SVO Fates

At some point I standardized all the fates to use a Subject-Verb-Object format. So instead of saying [Person A] [was killed by] [Person B] [with a gun], it's now [Person A] [was shot by] [Person B]. This makes matching fates easier and is friendlier to localization, where sentence structure can be shuffled.

FWIW (unless I'm confusing things completely) Subject-Verb-Object would be [Person B] [shot] [Person A]. The phrase [Person A] [was shot by] [Person B] is passive voice (Object-Verb-Subject). It's usually considered to be weaker, but it seems completely appropriate when the purpose is to put emphasis on the fate of Person A.
