Type Scroll
Name Scroll of amnesia
Icon Scroll of amnesia.png
A scroll that allows its reader to selectively erase one spell from memory to recapture the magic energy bound up with it.

Reading a scroll of amnesia causes you to instantly forget a spell of your choosing, which can be used to free up a caster's spell levels to memorize other spells.


  • You may press Esc after reading to cancel the scroll's effect. If you've already identified the scroll, it won't be used.
  • Even worshippers of Sif Muna might find these scrolls useful, because the Forget Spell ability costs piety.


  • Prior to 0.19, it was possible to forget spells by destroying spell books.
  • Prior to 0.13, forgetting spells would restore MP equal to the spell's level, and the scroll would only identify if you knew a spell to forget.
