Gameplay Edit

  • The real power of this spell comes not from to-hit or armor class penalties (which are nonetheless strong in their own right) but from an "undocumented" feature that affected enemies will have their sight range reduced to zero – and since they cannot see anything, they cannot attack either.
  • Playable thieves can actually benefit from blinded status effects – see thieves' special abilities for details.
