This spell causes an object to radiate shadowy illumination out to a 20-foot radius.

All creatures in the area gain concealment (20% miss chance). Even creatures that can normally see in such conditions (such as with dark-vision or low-light vision) have the miss chance in an area shrouded in magical darkness.

Normal lights (torches, candles, lanterns, and so forth) are incapable of brightening the area; as are light spells of lower level (such aslight ordancing lights). Higher level light spells (such as daylight) are not affected by darkness.

If darkness is cast on a small object that is then placed inside or under a lightproof covering, the spell’s effect is blocked until the covering is removed.

Darkness counters or dispels any light spell of equal or lower spell level.

Arcane Material Component: A bit of bat fur and either a drop of pitch or a piece of coal.
