0009505: Composing poetry and music doesn't check for nearby danger
Composing music and poetry takes you to the travel screen regardless of any surrounding enemies. Thus making it possible to escape bogeymen, dingos and so on by constantly writing until dawn. Also heals mortal wounds you may have sustained during bogeyman encounters.
Wander the wilds at night until attacked by bogeymen/bandits/dingoes/giant alligators.
Compose poem/music.
Repeat until dawn.
Carry on your adventure.
Probably should make the same check as for entering Fast Travel ("You don't feel safe enough to compose a poem")
No tags attached.

*slips out of a shadow, puts a bag over Shonai_Dweller's head, then drags him away into the darkness*

Shhhh, you saw nothing.

Yeah, I know. Spoils everyone's Fun. But once I worked it out I found myself tempted to use it one too many times.

Looks like this is fixed in 43.04. 'You are still surrounded by cackling".
Excellent. When did that happen?

--Also checked for non-bogeyman situations. Correctly get 'You don't feel safe enough to compose'.

Thanks for reporting back! I'm marking this as fixed in 0.43.01, which is the largest change between 0.42.05 and 0.43.04, but feel free to do more research if you like, or reopen this if it's not fixed.
