• Monster attacking itself?

    From Michael Meyer@21:1/5 to All on Thu Nov 4 18:33:33 2021
    I'm curious about some hitmm code in the current release that ensures
    messages about a silver-hating monster attacking itself with a silver
    weapon will make grammatical sense ("John's silver saber sears his own
    flesh!" instead of "himself's flesh!") -- is this just futureproofing,
    or is there a way that this is could happen in-game?

    paxed noted that a confused long worm can attack its own tail segment,
    but it seems like the silver-hater stuff wouldn't apply in that case...
    well, at least not until wereworms with silver teeth are added :). Are
    there any other circumstances under which a monster can attack itself?
