Does this also mean that randart light sources would always be torches or lanterns? Or are you adding Phial, Star, and Arkenstone as base items? If so, would they be generable in-game as non-artifacts?

Can we at least enforce that any randart light sources not need to be refuelled? It'd be kind of a dick move to generate an amazing randart torch with only 5000 turns of light and expect the player to micro-optimize whether or not they have it equipped, in order to keep it going as long as possible. Even with lanterns, refuelling is more a source of tedium than anything else outside the very early game. Kind of like the hunger "clock".
