In SpliceHack, the scroll of cloning is a scroll that can replicate an item in inventory.


When read, a scroll of cloning will prompt you to select an item in your inventory to clone. A new item will appear in your inventory: usually identical to the item you selected.

If the scroll is cursed, the cloned item will be cursed and have less charges or enchantment than the original.

Even if the scroll is not cursed, certain items will not be perfectly cloned:[1]

original clone
Bell of Opening bell
Candelabrum of Invocation wax candle
Amulet of Yendor Cheap plastic imitation of the Amulet of Yendor
Book of the Dead spellbook of blank paper
artifact the artifact's base type
wand of wishing cancelled wand of wishing
magic marker with over 15 charges magic marker with 15 charges
stackable item a single item

Confused reading

If you read the scroll of cloning while confused, the scroll will attempt to clone you.[2] This is not guaranteed to succeed as of SpliceHack 1.1.0. It can work if you are polymorphed into a monster.

Your clone might not be tame, even if the game lists it as tame.


You have found a scroll of cloning!
You read the scroll of cloning.
You clone yourself!
You read the scroll of cloning while confused. This does not guarantee the cloning succeeded.
You realize that you have been a clone all along!
As above, while hallucinating.
