Spells can be cast directly (after learning them from spellbooks), cast one time by reading from a scroll, or fired from a wand as many times as there are charges on the wand. Some of these spells are also invoked by drinking or throwing various potions, or from stepping on traps that are hidden throughout the dungeon.

Casting a spell requires mana, and the effectiveness or power of the spell is affected by your stats and your skill level in the relevant spell skill. There are 4 different spell skills, Light, Dark, Death, and Life. It is possible to cast a higher level spell if you do not have a high rank in the corresponding spell skill, but your chance of success is reduced. Your chance of success is dependent on difference between the rank of the spell and your skill rank in the appropriate spell skill. Every time you succeed in casting a spell, your skill in the corresponding spell skill will increase.

Casting a spell from a wand or a scroll requires no mana, and can be cast regardless of your stats or skills. Scrolls are destroyed after they are read, and wands are limited by the number of charges they contain. A wand is not destroyed when its charges reach zero, and can be recharged by a Scroll of Charging or zapping it with lightning. Casting spells from wands and scrolls will raise your skill in the corresponding spell skill.
