The scroll of flood from UnNetHack floods a circle around you with a decent radius. More specifically, reading a scroll of flood which is:

  • uncursed 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.
  • blessed has the same effect, except you're safe from it.
  • cursed restricts the flood to the square you're standing on. This 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 your character. The radius depends on its cursed or blessed status in this case.


Sometimes, a scroll of flood will be generated on top of a gravestone that reads "Apres moi, le deluge." (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.
