AKA: "If I breathe fire on Diggles, will I charbroil my lutefisk bounty?"

As you can see, I've lucked into quite the lutefisk stockpile here:

enter image description here

My primary mode of diggle destruction, however, is to breathe a plume of all-consuming fire. I've been trying to avoid using it around items to date, because I'm not sure if it causes damage to them - it tends to catch the stone floor on fire, and that makes me think it's a serious attack. That lutefisk sure looks tasty, too...

Will I damage items on the floor if I use my fire breathing attack? Are there any attacks which damage items on the floor?

I know what most of these words mean... But in combination... What. – LessPop_MoreFizz Dec 15 '11 at 0:59
I'm not certain enough of this to make it an answer, but I don't remember any attacks damaging items on the ground. – Fambida Dec 15 '11 at 1:03
@LessPop_MoreFizz Ah, you seem to be in a state of dungeons of dredmor deprivation. I recommend obtaining said game and remedying this, stat! – Arkive Dec 15 '11 at 2:08
In many other roguelike games (in particular Nethack and Angband), destructive area of effect could damage/destroy many items. As mentioned, Dredmor doesn't have this feature. – user177 Dec 22 '11 at 5:00

Nope. Your fiery breath will not consume items on the ground. Feel free to roast that diggle to your heart's content. Your valuable lutefisk will be fine.
