A scroll is a magical spell written on paper and is randomly generated by the charts earlier. Spells can only be read by Magic-Users and high level thieves (Thieves can read them, but can’t actually cast them). A scroll can only be cast once and after it is used, the words fade away completely. A Magic-User can unroll the top and read the name of a normal scroll without using it, but a cursed scroll will take effect as soon as it is opened (the character is allowed a Save vs. Spells). Protection scrolls can be used by anyone, and will form a 10’ radius protective ring around the reader against the appropriate targets. Spellcasters within the circle are unable to cast spells as the protective force will hold it all in.
