Gnomes with candles in 3.6

In 3.6 I've seen several gnomes drop lit candles after being killed in the mines. Perhaps this feature was brought in from UnNetHack? Funcrunch (talk) 21:03, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

It originally came from AceHack, in which gnomes actually used the candles. For NetHack 4, I made them not use the candles, because otherwise the player's inventory gets cluttered with a ton of candles of different lengths. When the devteam adopted it for vanilla, they turned the spawn rate down somewhat (and I may end up copying their new spawn rate; NH4's is probably too high). Ais523 (talk)
