Spell descriptionUpon completion of LIGHTRAY, one of the caster's index fingers emits a coneof light in the direction it is pointed. At its maximum range, the ray illuminatesan area 2' in diameter, although the wizard can make the beam smaller andshorter at will. The light produced by LIGHTRAY is roughly equivalent totorchlight in brightness, and thus is unable to damage an opponent (if thebeing is light-sensitive), nor is it of sufficient power to penetrate areasof magical darkness. In addition, the LIGHTRAY is focused such that it doesnot provide illumination outside its area, although the beam itself is visiblefor up to 30 yards if there is no obstruction between the LIGHTRAY and theobserver. The caster may end the spell with a thought at any time beforethe spell's duration is met.
The material component is a small candle.
This spell is especially useful for thieving, when it is often not desirableto carry a lantern or torch, nor to attract attention with a regular LIGHTspell. The LIGHTRAY spell enables a thief to see a lock clearly or searcha chest, etc. with far less chance of the light source being seen.
