Reading scrolls in town I read an unid'd deep descent. I got the messages "the air around you is charged" and then "the lower reaches of the dungeon beckon"
but I remained in town.

I may have been standing in a store entrance, can't remember. I made a save-file of the bug if someone wants to look at the file.

edit: i might be retarded. does deep descent take a recall time to call you down when you read it in town? I seem to remember it working immediately. I recalled two levels below where I left after about 50 turns.

When read in town it is like recall. When read in the dungeon it is like teleport level.

The real bug is the delay in word of recall. The spell it was based on was called *word* because it was supposed to take effect *faster* than any other spell.

Litany of Recall - Once fully invoked, it immediately magically transports you back to town, or if already in town, to the deepest dungeon level reached. Once the reading of the litany has begun, it must not be interrupted, making all other reading and spell casting impossible :).
