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 as light or dancing 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
