I was passing through the Leech Den. I slew a Leech and decided to see what was in the Dark area, I dropped a Torch upon the ground and was still in darkness. Out of random curiosity I clicked Backward to get back to the torch. I clicked the "pick up" option and the torch was picked up and back in my pack.
Trying to make sense of gods and goddesses has led many men to ruin. I suggest you avoid it from now on.
