Scroll Traps

Post by Dr. λ »

What are good scrolls for traps? I tried some bad scrolls like Summon Monster but it seems that when the trap activates it just summons a monster that's hostile to me instead of to the one who activated the trap.

I'd give Fire or Dispel Undead a try. Cancellation might be interesting. Genocide?
There are not a lot of offensive options for scrolls.

I'm going to try those sometime. So far this is what I've gathered (it could be that a lot of this is wrong or incomplete):

Summon Monster
Summons monster hostile to trapper

Light
Does damage to target
Cures trapper's Blindness from darkness when close to trap

Holy Chant
Does damage to target

Blessing
Does damage to target

Phase Door
Teleports target short distance away

Remove Curse
Dispel target if undead

Monster Confusion
Confuses target

Rumor
Nothing

Magic Mapping
Nothing

Word of Recall
Nothing

Blood Bond
Nothing

Satisfy Hunger
Nothing

Door/Stair Location
Nothing

Trap/Door Destruction
Nothing

Enchant Armor
Nothing

Recharging
Nothing

I'm especially disappointed at Word of Recall. Maybe it failed to do anything because I did not inscribe the scroll properly? I even waited for the Recall to charge but nothing happened. I would love to send some monsters to Bree.
