Many skills can be used under weird conditions
Certain skills can be successfully 'a'pplied under nonsensical circumstances.

Problem
Some skills can be successfully 'a'pplied under conditions that don't make sense.

In the wilderness
Alchemy is usable in the wilderness, and with a high enough Willpower, failed attempts can generate huge fireballs that span through forests and mountains!
Detect Traps, Disarm Traps, Haggling, Pick Pockets, and Ventriloquism are usable in the wilderness. They act as if there was nothing in the square they're used on. The last three can still be used on the PC himself.

In the dark
Alchemy can be used in the dark (but not while blind).
Bridge Building can be used in the dark.
Cooking can be used in the dark.
Detect Traps can be used in the dark (but not while blind).
Disarm Traps can be used in the dark.
Fletchery can be used in the dark
Gardening can be used in the dark.
Haggling can be used in the dark.
Metallurgy can be used in the dark.
Necromancy can be used in the dark.
Pick Locks can be used in the dark.
Pick Pockets can be used in the dark (but not while blind).
Smithing can be used in the dark.

Invisible stalkers can be pickpocketed even if the PC can't see invisible. Monsters that cast the invisibility spell such as Ogre Magus, cannot.

I tested all skills under nonsensical conditions and updated the first post.

Thanks, anon123... I think you missed the "stuck in hole" situation, but I've already created a "skill: condition / usability" matrix to discuss with Thomas.

Happy to help!

Yes, I missed that one, even though I find myself on it pretty often in the dwarven graveyard :D

In 1.2.0pr1, Pick Locks can still be used in the dark and while blind.

Thomas and I agreed that the player should be able to pick a lock without actually seeing it (by using his sense of touch or hearing the moving parts).

That seems perfectly reasonable to me - it's not like you can even see the inside of the lock. Using the tools requires the tactile senses, not eyes.

Huh. That was uncanny.
