Monsters can also read this scroll, with the same effects.


This scroll self-identifies if you see the new monsters being created.


This scroll might be used to create monsters for sacrificing, or for killing to gain XP, but it is also commonly blanked.

Advanced players are sometimes interested in reading these scrolls while confused to create massive numbers of acid blobs, e.g., for dispatching the Riders or as a protective fort against strong monsters.


In FIQHack, the scroll of create monster is replaced by the scroll of summoning.
