what is the probability of obtaining a scroll of upgrade? Ethanial has stated here that there is 8-13 scrolls in the entire dungeon but that doesn't line up with APCL probablities as that would mean there are 10-15 scrolls? Please explain

I dunno i just tried remembering what ethaniel said ._.
A C P L was perfectly right (he was referring to that comment), considering that at that moment (2013-07-24T00:45:43) the latest update was Update 0.4.5a (2013/07/05) containing only 4 stages while Demon Halls appeared later, in Update 0.5 (2013/08/18).
The generation for Scroll of Upgrade is different for the 5th stage, here is the detail for now.
Very probably, yes.
However the Hero’s remains will be at the floor where previous Hero died, so you can know for sure that, at all other floors, there is no Hero’s remains, just Skeletal remains.
As another wild guess, I think that Hero’s remains won’t spawn at boss levels and at depth 21.
Any of the dead Hero's equipped items or some of their gold. You will never find a scroll, potion, or seed of any kind in a Hero's remains so it shouldn't affect or relate to Scroll of Upgrade generation. However, as the items found in a Hero's Remains retain their upgrades you can find a Short Sword or Wand of Magic Missile with +1. Last time I found one, either 0.5.4b or 0.5.4c, I was able to Reforge/Disenchant it and upgrade another weapon/wand. How this might affect / tie into Scroll of Upgrade generation I can't even guess.
So theroeticly, if you strip down your hero to just say, their cloth armor, then die. They will drop it? So if you are end game and know you can't take on the next boss, just get rid of everything but heavily upgraded ring or something, go to floor one then die of hunger? And you'll find it next play through?
Consider it the other way: When a Scroll of Upgrade is generated for a given floor (the probability does not depend at all on the presence or absence of Flooded vaults or any other feature), then the possibly generated special rooms with high value prize (like Flooded vaults) will receive in priority the scroll.
Same thing with Potion of Strength.
