Scroll of protection from fiends
If read in full, the scroll of protection from fiends protects against all evil denizens of the Lower Planes. Partial readings will protect against only certain types. The circle of protection created by the scroll extends in a 10' radius from the reader. No fiend can penetrate the circle physically or magically in any way, but the person(s) located within the protection may launch attacks from inside.
The protection moves with the reader of the scroll. However, this warding circle cannot be used to force a fiend into a place from where further retreat is impossible (such as a corner). There is no way in which the scroll can be used as an offensive weapon.
Note: This item originally appeared in this form in The Complete Book of Necromancers for the AD&D game from TSR. Their use here is for the purposes of providing context for the campaign only.
