Clarify access to story mode

People rightfully complain that they don't know how to enable the Story mode.

I think the right-hand text for "Generate new character" should explain that you can customize further by pressing the "!" key, and give Story mode as an example.

We also might consider adding explicit buttons for roguelike mode and story mode... opinions?

Given that "Exploration" mode is it's own button, I think "story" mode should be too.

Agreed with Harwin! I haven't found it myself, yet.

For now I have added an extended help text. I do not want to clutter the UI with too many buttons.

Attached a mockup in this RFE:

That's related to this issue. Maybe bringing up the customization buttons like that will help?

Or maybe even adding a bottom bar clickable text "story mode, score xxx%" and "roguelike mode, score xxx%" instead of an icon?
