The spellbook of genocide would allow you to learn the genocide spell. It was removed in NetHack 3.1.0.

It could never be written and was not associated with any spell school, as these features did not yet exist in any version of NetHack which had the spell.


Main article: Genocide

Casting the genocide spell would give the same effect as an uncursed scroll of genocide, allowing you to wipe out a single species. Since skills did not yet exist, you could not get the effect of a blessed or cursed scroll of genocide from this spell.
