Hungerless casting or reduced-hunger casting offer reductions in (or elimination of) the nutrition penalty incurred by spellcasting. Both are granted automatically and exclusively to high-intelligence wizards:
|17 or more||No hunger penalty|
|16||25% hunger penalty|
|15||50% hunger penalty|
|14 or below or nonwizard||100% hunger penalty|
|Spell level||Normal hunger||Min with Amulet||Max with Amulet|
Casting the detect food spell never incurs a hunger penalty. Also, if casting a spell would put you at three or less nutrition, your nutrition is set instead to three. Hunger cost is rounded down: for example, casting a level 1 spell with 16 intelligence costs only 2 nutrition.
