Version 0.21: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Invocations denotes how skillful your character is at beseeching a deity for help. It improves the power and/or success rate of most god-given powers. (For some gods piety also has this effect, but not for all.)

Invocations also increases your max MP, but the effect is not cumulative with Spellcasting or Evocations, and provides less maximum MP than Spellcasting.
