I just arrived and found 2 chests of candles on the two leftmost chests (top and bottom) on the top floor. I don't think candles can be randomly generated in chests, but even if they can I don't believe that's a coincidence. However, I also don't know how to read the map files to determine the exact numbers of candles, etc. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 01:36, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Just checked the des-file (Source:NetHack_3.6.0/dat/tower.des); it's not a coincidence. 3.6.0 puts a stack of 4d2 candles into each of two chests on that floor. One stack is tallow and the other is wax. Which chest each stack appears in is randomized, but each stack is always in a separate chest.
Going to add a note about this in the article. :-) --Cherokee Jack (talk) 00:22, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
