I don't dare do this, but...

What would happen if I were to read a scroll of Deep Descent if I was on level 98 and had not yet defeated Sauron or on level 99 without defeating M?

Not even a message? (It whines, glows, and fades...) or some such?

Deep Descent won't take you past quest levels. If you're on a quest level, it'll just get silently used up; otherwise it'll take you down to the next quest level or 2 levels, whichever is closer.

(It also won't take you past max depth)

Interesting point. If I've read the code correctly, it will say "Effect not handled", which isn't particularly flavourful. I've changed this to "You have nowhere to go." ...

Could a newbie conceivably be confused? What about "You have something to do before going lower", which at least gives a hint...

How about "something in here doesn't allow you to go deeper"?

How about "Powerful magical seals prevent you from descending further", or, "You sense a malevolent presence blocking passage to the levels below."
