Spellbook of passwall is a spellbook in SLASH'EM. As its name suggests, it allows casters to pass through solid objects for a short amount of time (between 50 and 149 turns) before the caster becomes solid again and is given the message "You feel a little more solid." If the caster is in a solid object when he/she becomes solid again, the caster will be stuck there unless they can dig themselves out, pray, or cast passwall again. Be careful when you cast passwall without enough power to cast it (or, alternatively, dig) again, or at least a pickaxe or mattock to dig yourself out of a wall with, or you may find yourself stuck waiting to power up again for a while, leaving yourself open to potential monsters which can already pass through walls such as xorn. On the other hand, if you find yourself being pummeled and there are no such monsters nearby, you can stick yourself in a wall while you wait to heal.
