A procedure for producing specific magical effects.

Spellcasting is the power to use magic through words, sometimes in rhymes or Latin but also possible in other languages. It is a basic power of magical creatures though few actually develop it deeply.

Spells can cause many effects, both harmful and helpful. The languages of spells vary and can be in English, Latin, a mixture of English and Latino and any other kind of language such as Portuguese. [citation needed] Other spells are merely the mixture of ingredients to increase the magical potential but can cause the same effects of spoken spells.
