#248 closed bug (fixed (in master))

Hiding squelcables interacts badly with glyph of warding

Reported by: takkaria Owned by:
Milestone: 3.0.9 Keywords:



My dwarven priest casts Glyph of Warding on an empty square.
"The object resists the spell."
k! "1 item squelched."


GoW should silently destroy anything on the floor. (Or at least prompt.)

Here's a proposed solution - instead of destroying items or refusing to cast the spell, we simply shove any items out of the way as if they had been picked up by the player before casting and dropped again after (not that I'm suggesting that's what is happening in "real life"):
