In SLASH'EM, the spellbook of passwall allows the player to learn the spell of passwall.

Description

Casting the spell grants temporary intrinsic phasing, allowing you to pass through solid walls and other objects for anywhere between 50 and 149 turns before they become solid again; if you are in a solid object when the phasing wears off, you will be stuck there unless you can dig yourself out, pray, or cast the spell again.

Strategy

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; you may find yourself stuck waiting to power up again for a while, leaving yourself open to other phasing monsters such as xorns. 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.

Messages

You feel a little more solid.
Your temporary phasing ability has worn off.
