Debuted in the Player's Handbook.

Level: 1 School: Alteration
Components: V, S, M (a glowworm, or a bit of phosphorus or wychwood)
Range: 4" + 1"/level Casting Time: 1 segment
Duration: 2 rounds/level Saving Throw: None
Effect: 1-4 lights

Creates from 1-4 lights resembling torches, glowing spheres of light (much like will o' wisps), or vaguely humanoid figures (much like fire elementals). The lights can shed light up to a torch's brightness, and move as the spellcaster dictates, without requiring concentration. The lights wink out if they pass beyond the range of the spell.
