Help File

The help file for this skill also describes brew:

A Mage or Cleric of sufficient level holding a 'blank
scroll' or 'empty flask' may transform them into
spelled scrolls or potions via the scribe and brew

It takes significantly more mana to bind a spell to a
potion or scroll than to simply cast it.

Note that a fire is required to brew potions and a quill
to scribe scrolls.       


This skill allows you to scribe a spell of your choice into a blank scroll, to be used later or by someone else by means of the recite command. There are some limits though:

  • It must be a spell from your skills list and you must have learned it
  • You must hold a blank scroll and there must be a quill in your inventory
  • To scribe spells that require components you must also have them
  • Spells flagged as "noscribe" cannot be brewed regardless of the above

The mana cost is five times what the spell you are trying to scribe usually requires, half that in case of a failure. The "You cannot scribe that spell" message will be given for noscribe spells.

Scrolls created with this skill will look like "A glowing scroll inscribed 'spell name' lies in the dust." when on the ground.
