The tome of donors is a guaranteed artifact, a book that may be read to gain a random beneficial effect. Once read, it cannot be read again for a number of turns; this number increases the more times it is read.


Potentially a very good item. Effects are random, but can include gaining paralysis resistance and stat increases.

Guaranteed/Common sources

It is generated on the final level of the moldy dungeon, if it is entered before the character reaches level 14. Once the character reaches level 14, a useless ruined libram is generated instead.
