Creates a small sphere of impenetrable darkness.

AD&D 2e[]

Darkness, 15' Radius
Spell Level: 2 Rarity: Common
Schools: Alteration, Shadow
Components: V, S, M (a bit of bat fur and either a piece of coal or a drop of pitch)
Range: 10 yds/level Casting Time: 2
Duration: 1 turn + 1 rd/level Saving Throw: None
Area: 15-ft radius

Creates an area of magical darkness that cannot even be pierced by infravision. Even natural light brought into the area fails. A light spell will negate the darkness, 15' radius spell, and vice-versa, the spells cancelling each other out. A more powerful light spell, such as continual light overrides this spell.
