Summary 0007958: Lava Orcs when "fired up" can access books?
Description According to the description of the Lava Orc species, when they are fired up, items like scrolls and books are not accessible. When it happens(temperature at its fullest, enemies getting scorched around me) scrolls can't be read but magic books can be accessed(to pick a spell for memorization).

Can't find the commit but I seem to recall that this is intentional, the consensus being that there's no real tactical value in memorizing spells in battle, so there's no reason to forbid it for LO when hot.

Also, from a flavour standpoint, scrolls can be destroyed by fire but spellbooks can't, so perhaps spellbooks have some sort of fire-resistant magical construction.

Pretty sure it's intentional yeah, being hot shouldn't prevent you from browsing books since that's purely an interface thing (and blocking memorisation/forgetting spells doesn't matter either way).

Like the report says, documentation still mentions books as being inaccessible.

I don't have time to look through it right now, so I'm reopening this instead.

Ah I misread. Fixed the wiki manual entry for them, as far as I can tell everywhere else (A and A! screens mainly) only talks about scrolls.
