One of the spoilers also mentions Tibetian mythology. -Tjr 13:05, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

Still needed after invocation?

If Rodney should steal the book sometime after performing the invocation, does it matter? Is there any reason to continue carrying it around?

  1. kudos
  2. points
  3. you might need to use it to summon and/or tame undead --195.2.244.193 12:00, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

To answer my own question: the primary purpose (IMO) to keep the invocation items around is to reduce the probability that the Wizard will steal the Amulet of Yendor. -- Davek (talk) 17:35, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
