When this scroll is read, a purple-hued image of crystal clarity will be etched into your memory, alerting you to the precise layout of the level and revealing all hidden secrets. The locations of items and creatures will remain unknown.

Magic mapping reveals the entire layout of the level you use it on, along with all traps, secret doors, and levers, but not the locations of items or enemies. These scrolls are better saved for later in the dungeon, as secret doors and traps become increasingly common further down.

It's often wise to read a scroll of magic mapping when it's imperative that you avoid stepping on traps, such as when you are low on health. They are also useful for finding the elusive descending staircase hidden behind a secret door. Use of one after falling through a trap door or being attacked by a Pit Bloat can save you from the considerable danger of falling repeatedly.
