Type Scroll
Name Scroll of noise
Icon Scroll of noise.png
A prank scroll that creates a loud noise when read.

Reading a scroll of noise causes a loud clanging noise to emanate from the player's location, alerting monsters to your presence. At 25 intensity, this is more than twice as loud as shouting by pressing t.

Strategy

  • If you haven't identified scrolls of noise yet, be wary of read-identifying scrolls near unexplored areas. If one of your scrolls happens to be a scroll of noise, there's no telling what sort of things you'll wake up.
  • If you utilize shouting in your play style to draw monsters to you (e.g. ambushing, hit & run with stairs, verifying an area is cleared of monsters, etc.), a scroll of noise is not entirely useless to you, as its greater noise will draw monsters from further away. Keep that in mind as you run across them.
