Scrolls of danger are Scrolls that, when read, raise the Danger Level of the current dungeon by a random amount; thought to be a dice roll that depends on the scrolls' B/U/C Status(1d2/2d2/3d2 respectively).

Scrolls of danger seem to stop working after hitting DL of 45.

If read while in a wilderness area, such as a forest or a road, it will increase the danger level of all wilderness areas. This means that if you read it in a forest, you increase a danger level by n, the wilderness therefore has now a DL of n+1(the wilderness seems to be a DL1 area). If you go to another area such as another forest or a hill, it will have a DL of n+1. This is especially useful for, and has been tested by a prospective Steel man.

A scroll of danger is one of the items required for Gaab'Baays quests.


One scroll of danger is required for anyone attempting an Ultra ending. Anyone who wishes to create higher DL items in a normally low DL area will find them useful. Otherwise, they are useless and arguably harmful items, but there are many, many, many more immediate ways to cause danger to yourself.
