A scroll of blank paper, cost 60 (strangely, it is not the cheapest scroll), is always an 'unlabeled scroll' and is always blank.

Generation

They may be obtained normally or by blanking other scrolls with a wand of cancellation or by dipping in water, intentionally or otherwise. Killing a paper golem will also often yield one or more scrolls of blank paper.

Effects

"Reading" a scroll of blank paper will not violate the illiterate conduct.

The main use of scrolls of blank paper is to write new scrolls with a magic marker. The beatitude of the resulting scroll is affected by the beatitude of both the scroll of blank paper and the magic marker, meaning if a cursed magic marker was to write on a blessed scroll of blank paper, then the outcome would be an uncursed scroll.

You can also polymorph scrolls of blank paper into other scrolls.

Messages

You can't write that! It's obscene!
You attempted to write a scroll of blank paper (which by definition wouldn't have any writing).
