@ Hey Dogley, I have a question.

          -------   
@ Why are scrolls so rare? It's just a piece of paper with magic words. Why can't we just write the words somewhere else and read from that?

d Interesting idea. Why don't you try it then? It's not gonna hurt you or anything.

You write in the dus
t with your fingers.

@ Okay, so I know that GHOTI is scroll of genocide, let's write it down here...
You read: "GHOTI".

@ Whatever, Dogley. Now if I read it outloud...

As you read the word
s, the dungeon disap

@ Well, that explains something.

Cute, though I thought that GHOTI (or whatever) is just the title of the scroll: to actually read it you have to open the scroll and you get one read before it disappears.

Another explaination is that GHOTI is the filename,you have to open it and read(2) the gibberish^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hbinaries which interacts with the world.
There should be some code to make it delete itself after execution.
