An ancient scroll is an item that can be obtained by using the magical feather on the travelling merchant. It can be read with level 60 Archaeology and is encrypted with a rotation cipher.

Attempting to read the scroll without level 60 Archaeology will prompt the user with the message; "You don't have the expertise to understand the writing on this." Trying to make out the writing regardless will result in a thinking animation and the player saying; "Worth a try I guess?"
