Recalls any friendly creatures on the same level to a position adjacent to the caster, over a short duration.

Recall is a level 3 Summoning/Translocation spell that gradually teleports all summoned or enslaved creatures on the current floor to the caster's vicinity.


One creature is recalled every 3-6 aut. It can only bring creatures to within a three-square radius of the caster, so don't expect to pull entire armies into cramped hallways. In an open area (at least 7-by-7, with the caster in the middle), it can recall at most 48 creatures.

This spell will also recall zombies created by the Animate Dead spell, but only if the caster is on the same floor that they were created. Zombies will not be recalled across different floors.


Prior to 0.12 it was impossible to recall flying monsters over lava or deep water.
