In SpliceHack, the scroll of elementalism is a scroll that can summon elementals.

Effects

If you read the scroll while you are not confused, elementals will be created. Any elemental in the game is eligible except the fusion elemental. This includes the new SpliceHack-specific elementals that are rarely seen otherwise.[1]

The number and hostility of the elementals depend on the beatitude of the scroll.[2]

Beatitude Number Hostility
Blessed 1 13 chance of being hostile, otherwise tame
Uncursed 1 12 chance of being hostile, otherwise peaceful
Cursed 2-4 always hostile

Confused reading

If you read the scroll while confused, the scroll will create gas spores, flaming spheres, freezing spheres or shocking spheres. The number and hostility of the created monsters depend on the beatitude of the scroll:

Beatitude Number Hostility
Blessed 3-12 tame
Uncursed 3-12 hostile
Cursed 1 hostile

Monster use

Monsters can read this scroll. If the monster is confused, the scroll will create gas spores, flaming spheres, freezing spheres or shocking spheres. Otherwise it will create random elementals (excluding fusion elementals). The number of elementals is 1-12 for a cursed scroll, 1-4 otherwise.[3]
