Really great! I just realized (I forgot) that I have already coded this into my variant, by accidentally trying to summon my pets (under massive attack by a bunch of goats) and instead teleporting to my pets.[Quote]

What about when cursed? Maybe teleport you on top of your pet, injuring and angering it?[Quote]

I can understand magical items that require intelligence to use to behave in this way; misreading a scroll, say, makes sense. But why should a magic whistle care about the mental state of the guy blowing into it?


If you read the patch:

"Being confused, you accidentally suck in through [the magic whistle]."

That's reasonable, given that you think that a magic whistle is reasonable of course.[Quote]

Cute. I like it, but its perhaps a little open to abuse; eg: creating a teleport anchor by placing a pet in a locked room while exploring the rest of the level.


Well, I'd call that _use_ rather than _abuse_.[Quote]
