|Summary||0003346: Kobold's short sword of flaming not identified until it stopped flaming?|
From the message history:
The kobold unwields an uncursed runed short sword.
(NOTE: The sword is unidentified at this point)
It stops flaming. The kobold wields a blowgun. The kobold shoots a poisoned needle. The poisoned needle hits you!
You are poisoned.
You see here a poisoned needle.
The kobold unwields an uncursed blowgun.
The kobold wields an uncursed short sword of flaming.
(NOTE: And now it is identified, even before the flame message below)
It bursts into flame!
Since the short sword was listed as a short sword of flaming when the kobold wielded it again, before it was described as bursting into flame, but it was unidentified before hand, it seems the "It stops flaming." message was what identified it as a short sword of flaming.
But if we can tell it is a short sword of flaming once it *stopped* flaming, shouldn't we be able to tell it's a short sword of flaming while it *is* still flaming?
In other words, if a monster is holding a flaming weapon, only identifying it as such once they unwield it and it ceases to flame seems really odd.
Does this seem counter-intuitive to anyone else?

|This was mostly handled this way for consistency with the messages. Since I don't want to give away weapon brands on sight, I guess we should just remove the "stops flaming" message and identification on unwielding.|
|Should be moot now.|
