You either smear a drop of pitch on your hands or step on a piece of brittle coal as you imagine darkness spreading into the area you can see. All light fails to penetrate the black wispy globe the spell creates, which looks like a thick cloud of smoke.

Action - 15 ft Radius (60 feet.) - 2nd Level (Illusion) - VM - Concentration (10 Minutes)

Area Hazard

  • You create darkness that cannot be seen through even by creatures with darkvision. This magical darkness spreads arounds corners.

  • Non-magic light can't spread through the darkness.

  • If this spell overlaps with an area of light created by a spell of 1st level or lower*, the spell that created the light is dispelled.

  • If the point you choose is an object you are holding or one that is being worn or carried the darkness is exuded by the object and moves with it.

*Upcasting: The level of light-creating spell Darkness can dispel increases by 1 for each spell level above 2nd level.
