A spell in NetHack is a magical power granted through the study of spellbooks. Other types of magic and magical objects exist in the game (such as scrolls, rings, and wands), but the word spell is reserved almost exclusively for the innate kind that consumes your magical energy. Spellcasting without hungerless casting or reduced-hunger casting (both of which are granted only to high-intelligence wizards) incurs a hunger penalty.
