New players occasionally have difficulty managing their inventory of viable lights and expired lights that have burnt-out. When a viable lantern and an extinguished lantern are carried in an inventory they register as being a plural amount of the same item ie. " a lantern". They are not distinguished from one another unless they are specifically examined. If a burnt out lantern that was being held is removed with the intention of holding a viable lantern that is already in the inventory the player will need to "hold 2.lantern" or they will hold their already burnt-out lantern. Alternatively, the player could remove and drop the burnt-out lantern before bring a viable lantern into their inventory.
