If unit is not adjacent to an ally, inflicts penalty
on foe's Atk/Def during combat = 5 + any
current penalty on each of those stats.
(Example: if foe has -7 penalty to Atk, inflicts
Atk-12, for a net penalty of Atk-19 during
combat.) Calculates each stat penalty
independently.
周囲1マス以内に味方がいない時、
戦闘中、敵の攻撃、守備-5、かつ
敵が攻撃、守備の弱化を受けていれば、
戦闘中、敵の攻撃、守備が弱化の値だけ減少
(能力値ごとに計算)
(例えば、攻撃-7の弱化を受けていれば、
 -7-7-5で、戦闘中、攻撃-19となる)
