Guiding candle is a magical wax candle that, if non-cursed, affects the squares lit by it in a number of ways: * invisible monsters in the lit area can be seen as if you had see invisible ** if you carry the lit candle, your own invisibility is also negated * hidden monsters are revealed and prevented from hiding again ** this also applies to the player (mostly if polymorphed) * secret doors, passages and traps are also revealed * buried and underwater objects are temporarily illuminated Blessed guiding candles also have a base light radius of 3 instead of 2, but in most other mundane ways the new candles behave like wax candles -- that includes their limited lifespan of 400 turns. Also, for balance reasons, each time a non-cursed guiding candle is lit, it instantly loses 10 turns from its remaining burn time. The inspiration behind the patch is a "lamp that detects unseen" idea from some folks on Freenode, but I made it a candle to nerf it a bit. The patch also includes a minor optimization to buried objects -- each square now has a bit for marking whether something is buried under it (buried objects are not normally stored per-tile). To make space for a new bit, the 3.6 bit for re-digable Castle trapdoors has been moved to the terrain flags.Max. 65500 charsYou will need to answer the following question correctly: What symbol represents a spellbook?
