Talk:Scroll of light

Scroll behaviour in 3.6.0

The source is:

   if (!confused || rn2(5)) {
       // generate light or dark field
       // darkness is generated if the scroll is cursed or the player is confused  
   } else {
       // generate yellow or black light

If the player is confused, !confused is always false, while rn2(5) has 80% chance to be true, therefore there is 20% chance to generate a monster. If the player is not confused, !confused is always true, so the scroll never generates a monster.
