One possibility would be to add a note at the bottom of the table saying something to the effect of, "5% of magician, cleric, necromancer, and druid scrolls will be penned by shamans." Just a suggestion.
Point taken! If they make them, they exist, even if they are practically useless to others. I'll give it some thought.
I gather from this statement that the intent is that shaman scrolls can't be used by other classes, even ones using the same school of magic? I think this could stand to be clarified in the new printing, because I'm not sure this is clear from the current RAW.
I took another look at the shaman's scroll creation ability, as well as the shaman's sorcery ability, and also the scroll creation and use rules in general. It appears this is not clear in the current RAW, but maybe I thought it was, because it's how I've handled it, and apparently Handy, too (which is frightening to realize we are thinking alike!). I'm probably not as strict as Handy, though -- I can see allowing shamans to use other shaman's scrolls, but there may well be a cost! Is the original creator of the scroll invoking his/her powers through ancestral spirits? What happens when the Esquimaux shamaness invokes the ancestral spirited scroll of a Pict? These are things I think about! But mabon's point remains true -- these items exist, so perhaps they should be findable.
