The scroll of food detection reveals the location of all comestibles on the level.

Reading effectsEdit

This scroll detects and reveals the location of all comestibles on the level, including those on the ground and those in monster inventories. If blessed, you acquire the food appraisal intrinsic in addition. If the scroll is cursed, or you are confused regardless of the BUC-status of the scroll, you will detect potions instead.

IdentificationEdit

If there are comestibles on the level (if blessed or uncursed) or potions (if confused and/or cursed) then this scroll will auto identify. Otherwise you will get a message below as to the nature of the scroll and you will be able to indirectly identify it - it will not be automatically identified. Players who the game classifies as a beginner will get ambiguous messages in this case.

StrategyEdit

The obvious use is if you are short on food you can read an uncursed or blessed version of the scroll to find food on the level. Beware, this will display all comestibles including tainted and poisoned corpses and corpses that can cause petrification or other harmful effects.

The food appraisal intrinsic is useful to prevent issues from food including food poisoning, petrification and breaking conducts, however it will only warn you once before the intrisic is lost and will need to be reapplied.

The potion detecting capability of cursed and/or confused readings of the scroll can be used to find useful potions in monster inventories, such as a potion of gain level or smoky potions so that monster could be liberated of the potion quickly before the monster uses it. However this functionality is duplicated by other means.

Otherwise if you are in a point in the game where food is not much of a concern anymore, or you have a spellbook of detect food, this scroll is a good candidate for blanking.
