Scroll of flood
|Base price||200 zm|
|Ink to write||10–19|
|Monster use||Will not be used by monsters.|
If the scroll is uncursed, it creates water around you in a similar fashion to an overflowing fountain, but with a higher probability per square, and a chance of including your own square. If the scroll is blessed, it will not create a pool underneath you. A cursed scroll restricts the flood to the square you're standing on, which could be useful when levitating over a tile of lava with something valuable sunk into it.
It has the opposite effect when you're confused; it removes a circle of water from around you. The radius depends on its cursed or blessed status in this case.
In addition to random generation, a scroll of flood will be generated on top of a gravestone that reads "Apres moi, le deluge"; the phrase is French for "After me, the flood".
The scroll of flood also appears in Slash'EM Extended, where it may be read by monsters as well. No pools will be created directly underneath the player if a monster reads it, though.
xNetHack's scroll of water is very similar, except it will never create a pool of water under the player.
