Version 0.13: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
Type Book
Name Grand Grimoire
A deathly silence seems to surround this book as it's opened; even the very air appears to recoil from the monstrosities pictured here. The pages, covered in abominable runes, describe how the mighty among summoners can bend to their will the terrible things from betwixt the planes. Many have been the unwary souls, however, who have toyed with this tome and been driven mad by eldritch horrors from beyond imagining.

Reading the Grand Grimoire requires you to have both level 6 in Spellcasting and level 10 in Summonings.


Tile Spell Type Level

In 0.14, Aura of Abjuration and Forceful Dismissal will take the place of Mass Abjuration and Demonic Horde.

Prior to 0.12, failing to memorise a spell from this book could produce severe Summoning miscast effects. The Grand Grimoire was one of the books gifted by Vehumet. The followers of this god were able to read this book without the required amounts of Spellcasting and Summoning.

Prior to 0.8, this book was called the Book of Demonology.
