Scrolls of magic mapping are Scrolls that, when read, reveal part of or the entire level map (if blessed) to the player.


These are quite valuable, especially if the player wields sources of on-demand teleportation, to help traverse a level or get to important parts quickly. The Dwarven Halls or VDDL can be revealed in this manner to reveal the respective down staircases, the immediate goals in both places. The Minotaur Maze is much, much easier to deal with using these scrolls too, if smartly used. Even for regular dungeon levels, these can be very useful if it is hard to explore normally.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Eight of these can be found in the Bug Cave.
