Comment: To choose the same item name for completely different concepts - as described in the history section - is not a good but rather a confusing action. Nevertheless I take it as it is. To have a crimson imp and an ogre skeleton at D:6 XL5 is naturally welcome. But alas: "extremely rare" scroll. -- Bwijn 21:47, 10 May 2013 (CEST)

Monster use of Scroll of summoning?

Monster use of Scroll of summoning As the screen shot example shows this scroll (?) is used my non-mage monsters to cast sth. like Shadow Creatures. I don't remember that I saw monsters use this scroll before. Should the monster use be added to the article text? -- Bwijn (talk) 17:42, 13 August 2014 (CEST)

Scroll not working?

While ID-ing scrolls I read that one and it did nothing, all I got was the message

As you read the scroll labeled XXXX, it crumbles to dust. Wisps of shadow whirl around you... The shadows disperse without effect. It was a scroll of summoning

What the hell? --Fingolfin (talk) 10:41, 31 July 2015 (CEST)

Was there anywhere the summoned creatures could have spawned? I don't think summoning stuff works if there's nowhere to spawn things within like 2 tiles of you. --spudwalt (talk) 16:50, 31 July 2015 (CEST)
I was in an open area on lair:4, I'd show you a screenshot but I don't know how to post them. --Fingolfin (talk) 22:18, 31 July 2015 (CEST)
To post screenshots, upload the image to the wiki first -- click "Upload File" on the left, then put it into an article like any other image.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure why the scroll would've fizzled like that, but I don't use scrolls of summoning that often. --spudwalt (talk) 02:42, 1 August 2015 (CEST)
Thanks Spudwalt, here it is :

As you can see it looks like a pretty normal use of a scroll of summoning... Well if anyone knows anything please tel me I'm pretty intrigued. Also I did some wizmode testing and even if there are no more monsters on the level ore if there is only one free tile the scroll works fine -- Fingolfin (talk) 10:33, 1 August 2015 (CEST)
