I have to agree with you here, if we are sticking with the "too dumb to eat concept" as it says explicitly in the spec, then the grendel should not actively check for food if it knows its in the same place, because no one coming in wll apply as good food.
: : In case my point wasn't implied--a grendel checks its movement pattern and executes a move if one is expected, it then checks for food. Whether or not it moves doesn't determine its eating; it always checks the area for food.
: See, I was confused b/c I was going by the line in the specs that says:
: "As a general rule, a predatory creature will only decide to consume another creature when the predatory creature first enters the square." -- First line of the first paragraph on page 2 (right after the grendel discription)
: Thus, since the grendel doesn't move "into the square" as the browser, it should not attempt to consume the browser. Therefore, the browser should get away scott free.
: Is this a correct reading of the specs or am I reading into this too much?
