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

Strategy

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.
