A scroll of magic detection is a type of scroll that appears in GruntHack, EvilHack and Hack'EM. In GruntHack, it is known as a scroll of detect magic.


When read, the scroll detects all magical items on the current level similar to a potion of object detection, including items with object properties, as well as revealing the current location of monsters that are capable of casting monster spells. The exact effects of the scroll depend on its beatitude: An uncursed scroll of detect magic will flag all revealed items as "magical", while a blessed scroll will identify the item type and object properties of any detected magical items; a cursed scrolls will also detect mimics and wakes up any monsters that it detects.
