[PosChengband] Scroll of Mundanity?

"This removes the ego or artifact status and all enchantments of an item. As an added bonus, if you have a stack of them, the extras are destroyed."

This seems like an awful scroll, meant to punish players who use things without IDing them.. but it sells for an absolutely ludicrous amount of gold, instead of being worthless like most bad items (e.g. !poison). Is there something that it's /good/ for, that I'm totally missing?

Use on e.g. Rune Sword to unwield (and ruin). Use on ego/artifact you want as base for artifact creation...

its useful for unwielding a runesword that has become burdensome, for example. it destroys the sword but it frees you to wield something else

Only cure for any permacursed item. Like superbad feanor boots. I had a character killed by boots that had TY curse, ag, xp curse, -5 to all stats, act for haste but a md penalty that set it to 95% fail. Pretty much boots of your f'd.

In Entroband, *Remove Curse* would remove any additional curses that had accumulated on a perma-cursed item. Is that not the case in PosCheng?

Would it be possible to use it on a weapon with additional damage dice and then turn it in to an artifact, or does it remove the extra dice too? I haven't tried, so I'm not sure if it is aware of dice changes.

It resets damage dice/sides too, to whatever the default is for that base object.
