This spellbook enables you to cast wizard lock, which allows you to close and lock doors. The effect is the same as that of a wand of locking; further information can be found at wizard lock.

If you wish to be able to cast polymorph, dig, or other high-level matter spells, it can be worth memorizing wizard lock and casting it for no effect in order to train matter spells; this is one of the simplest ways to improve polymorph's success rate.


In slash'em, they are new indestructible doors at the top level of Vlad's Tower. This spell only closes the doors with out locking them (message:"The door swings shut!"). Otherwise, the rest is exactly the same.
