Forum:Rock moles and chests/boxes

OK, while I'm thinking about it....

Some time ago I used to stash things in room I could lock, now I stash things in boxes/chests, in some cases in rooms I can lock just-in-case.

But I was thinking. Some time in the past I had a rock mole eat gold, a *lot* of gold for early-game, which kind of left a mark. I imagine the chests/boxes as being partially metal. Do I have to worry about rock moles messing with them?

BTW, when I figures out that boxes/chests could be useful to me beyond whatever might be in them I quit breaking into them before I found a non-destructive way to open them.

The boxes are made of wood, which means that while rock moles can't eat them, gelatinous cubes can. You could probably roll a boulder on top of the box to make sure the cube can't get to it. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 06:35, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
