Range: Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)

Whispering the fi nal syllable of the complicated
formula, you cast the spell. Instantly,
a blast of bright light fi lls the targeted area.
From your vantage point, the spell’s light
glows like a torch, although you note some
creatures turn away from it as if it were a
blinding radiance.

This spell creates an intensifying
illusion of bright light that affects all
creatures within the area (except those
that are sightless or blinded). Viewers
that fail their saving throws see a
burst of bright light on the fi rst round
and become blinded for 1 round. On
subsequent rounds for the rest of the
spell’s duration, the affected creatures
continue to perceive a bright light. If
they take penalties in bright illumination,
they take them for the duration of
their exposure to this light. Additionally,
they are dazzled while in the area
of the spell. Those who escape the area
of a shadow radiance spell completely
recover within 1 round. Those who
make their saves and those outside the
initial burst see only the equivalent of
torchlight emanating from the center
of the area.

Material Component: A fl ame at least
the size of a torch.
