this happened again, but in a different way…
I had a stack of Iron fists, most of them were regular fists and two of them were forged with attraction and something else. The forged fists were arranged at the bottom of the smart stack.
The fist circled in green was in the left slot and the forged fist I was using was in the right slot. I am 99% sure I had assigned the radial slots to those individual tools, there is a possibility the green circled radial slot was assigned to the entire smart stack.
the forged fist broke as I expected it would, and since it wasn’t assigned to a stack I knew it would disappear and I would have to switch to the left slot.
But, when the forged fist broke and disappeared, the regular fist in the left slot disappeared as well.
I am standing in the sanctum because I was killed by a cuttletrunk while fumbling around in my inventory trying to get another fist in my hand. not trying to guilt trip heh, I already had the penalty, just saying, it’s not that minor if death can be the result.
