Scroll of Challenge

The Scroll of Challenge can be found randomly at normal depths (not in boss floors) and in shops, or as a random drop from Gnoll shaman.

When read


Reading a Scroll of Challenge

The Sleep debuff is removed from all enemies at the current depth, which are then attracted by the Hero/ine (except Animated statue), and inflicts the Rage debuff.


  • This scroll makes leveling a little bit easier by increasing the frequency of enemies between fights.
  • If you want to identify scrolls, never do this in a shop. The shopkeeper will leave and won't return.
  • Be sure to prepare the Hero/ine before using the scroll. If it was unidentified, prepare the Hero/ine before the enemies begin to arrive. You can prepare s/he by healing him/her and/or even planting a Seed of Earthroot and use the Herbal armor it gives if you're not confident that the Hero/ine can survive the clash of all the enemies that will come towards the challenged location. Or just simply stay close to a door and clash them all, then heal the Hero/ine afterwards if it's necessary.
