Currently the font size is set, and there is no good way to change it.
This size might be hard to read for some players

For the sake of accessibility it would be good to make it possible to play the game with a larger font.

Currently most config for the font is stored in content/fonts/libertine.xml
The easiest solution would probably be to make 2 more versions of this (larger and very large).
The user can then choose which to use in the settings (best would be if they could also choose their own font and fontconfig by manually editing settings.xml; this would be at own risk)

One of the challenges would be adjusting the size of the elements that hold the text.
For example, labels (like tooltips) adjust their size based on the text in it, but it assumes the font set in settings.xml (which isn't used in the label text) and assumes the font size of 8 (a default set in fifechan).
The number of characters per line in a tooltip is hardcoded (19).

Well it would introduce a lot of problems with positioning elements in XML files.
