[Hexen] Some differences from vanilla

This is mainly a cross-post of some interesting differences that someone brought up over at DW.

They're related to the Heresiarch and Firestorm in GZDoom versus vanilla. Supposedly the Heresiarch no longer takes splash damage from his purple projectiles, while the Cleric's Firestorm has been oddly nerfed, taking extra shots to kill even weak enemies such as Ettins.

Ok, so I tested out Chocolate Hexen and compared the Firestorm's damage vs in GZDoom.

By typing NRA cheat and a bit of ettin killing on the first map confirmed that Firestorm is doing less damage to enemies in GZDoom. In Choco, I was mostly (as in +75% of instances) one-shotting ettins whereas in GZDoom, I would only rarely one-shot ettins.
