Particle

Description

The Particle class will be made in the ParticleEmitter class and when made, all it's attributes will be assigned a random value based off the min and maxes issued to the Emitter class. From there, it will be fired from the emitter's location, go about it's movement until its lifetime has ran out, then set back to be fired again if needed.
