Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

Blocks of Ice and LRD

If they are like statues, and made of ice, then why not? Not that Glaciate needs to be more powerful, but from a consistency's perspective, it's an odd variation from the theme.

This would be a fun spell interaction between two schools that you currently have very little reason to train both of, I don't see it being gamebreaking. I like it.

Probably more of an oversight than anything else.

Re: Blocks of Ice and LRD

I have noticed since posting the above that you can "kill" the blocks of ice. They melt and disappear rather quickly, but if you ctrl-hit them, you damage them, like living things. Also, if they are flash-frozen near a slime wall, they will die from acid burns before they disappear on their own by melting, which is kind of weird, but which made me notice they could be hurt.

You can damage the pillars of salt from zin recite too.

Re: Blocks of Ice and LRD

Salt pillars and Glaciate ice blocks are the same thing (with different descriptions)
