Is it really possible to portal underwater without being able to breathe? This is mentioned in the article Dangerous zones when stuck underwater as way out. --Frazyl 02:35, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

You can! I checked it just now. --Ilde 04:10, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Staff versus Finger

The 2nd spell line changes depending on whether you're holding a staff or not. I've always wondered if this affects the outcome somehow.
(Wizards) is convinced that it doesn't matter, but afaik no actual research been done on this?

Casting on non-blorps

I removed "casting on an item that is not a blorp" as a reason for malformed doors, because when I do so, the spell isn't cast, and I get the message "The <item> does not know any destinations."

Shoving burning doors with staff

I just pushed a burning door with a staff, and it made the staff catch fire! The effect was pretty minimal, though--it didn't hurt me or appear to damage the staff. Does anyone know anything about that?

push door with staff
You prod the burning piece of fur hard with the oak walking staff.  the oak walking staff catches fire.
Your oak walking staff catches fire.
The burning piece of fur wobbles alarmingly.
l staff
Four feet of solid, smooth-grained oak branch, trimmed and polished and still scented with beeswax, this staff is smooth and straight along its length, from head to heel.
It appears to be on fire.  Someone should probably do something about that.
It is in excellent condition.

I went and jumped in a river, but that didn't seem to put the fire out. I'm not sure how you're supposed to dowse it, if you can at all. ("Dowse" isn't a valid command, apparently.) The fire went out 26 seconds after I jumped in the river... it lasted two minutes and one second total.
