Darkness Spell2

Darkness Evocation

Traditions arcane, divine, occult, primal

Cast [three-actions] material, somatic, verbal

Range 120 feet; Area 20-foot burst; Duration 1 minute


You create a shroud of darkness that prevents Light from penetrating or emanating within the area. Light does not enter the area and any non-magical Light sources, such as a torch or lantern, do not emanate any Light while inside the area, even if their Light radius would extend beyond the darkness.

This also suppresses magical light of your darkness spell’s level or lower. Light can’t pass through, so creatures in the area can’t see outside. From outside, it appears as a globe of pure darkness.


Heightened (4th) Even creatures with darkvision (but not greater darkvision) can barely see through the darkness. They treat targets seen through the darkness as concealed.
