Effect: Potions of mystery are potions that are mixed randomly with no heed paid to the alchemy mixing list. Potions of mystery can have any of the following effects:
- Shrink the user down to a height of three inches.
- Cause the user to become dyslexic. This reverses the names of upcoming monsters and items.
- Remove the user's legs.
- Teach the user the skill of fennling. Fennling is the art of combining wands to reduce inventory.
- Give the user temporary knowledge of writing. This skill can only be used if the writer has a stylus. After a limited number of scrolls are rewritten, the skill fades.
