|This scroll surrounds the reader with a dense cloud of fog.|
Reading a scroll of fog creates several clouds of harmless, opaque smoke. These are centered around the player and last for several turns. This has little apparent usefulness, but can be very helpful in certain situations:
- Enemy abilities and spells that create dangerous clouds cannot affect tiles that already have clouds, rendering you temporarily immune to those.
- The locations of invisible monsters standing in clouds are revealed by the disturbances they create.
- You can block line of sight by placing two or more clouds of smoke between you and the enemy, protecting you from dangerous ranged attackers, smiters, and tormenters long enough for you to flee or position yourself somewhere safer. Better still, while enemies can't attack tiles they can't see, you can; firing at tiles where you predict opponents may be can get you several free hits while the enemy charges toward you (just watch out for the, "You feel more experienced," message to alert you that the enemy's dead).
