3. Upgrades
          I put how much each upgrade costs to have it under its level. It 
costs 1 upgrade point to get the upgrade. You get an upgrade point for every 
100 experience points you get. It doesn’t cost what it says under cost to get 
the upgrade, the cost is how much it counts toward your expenses.
