CompassDirectionclasstravel.t[110], en_us.t[3072]

The base class for compass directions (north, south, etc). We don't add anything to the basic Direction class, but we use a separate class for compass directions to allow language-specific customizations for all of the directions and to allow travel commands to treat these specially when needed.

Modified in en_us.t[3072]:
The English-specific modifications for compass directions.
