The scroll of recall is a scroll in FIQHack that can bring pets to you like a magic whistle, but can work across dungeon levels.


It has a base price of 200zm, ink cost of 10 and appears as 3% of all scrolls.


Unlike a magic whistle, the scroll draws pets across dungeon levels, unless the pet is carrying the Amulet. A cursed scroll will draw hostiles on the same level to you. An uncursed scroll will draw pets on the same level to you (like a magic whistle). A blessed scroll will draw all pets in the dungeon to your current location.

If the reader is confused, the effect is reversed -- it will instead draw the reader to a hostile monster (if cursed) or a pet (if uncursed) or possibly a pet on a different level (if blessed).
