concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, light spreads out from a point within 20 meters to fill a sphere twice as big as normal for the duration. The light sheds bright light and sheds dim light beyond the bright light to a distance equal to the sphere’s radius.

If you chose a point on an object you are holding or one that isn’t being worn or carried, the light shines from the object and moves with it. Completely covering the source of the light with an opaque object, such as a bowl or a helm, blocks the light.

If any of this spell’s area overlaps with an area of darkness created by a spell using equal or less mana, the spell that created the darkness is dispelled.

At the start of each of your turns if the light is within 20 meters of you, you can cause it to move up to 2 meters in a direction that you choose. If you spend an action, you can move it up to 10 meters.

You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the light is magical sunlight. A creature with the Sunlight Sensitivity species trait is impacted. Non-magical darkness, as well as darkness created by spells of using equal or less mana, can’t darken the area.

  • Dawn. You can expend 1 additional mana and cast the spell as two actions so the sunlight beams with radiant energy. The sphere is now sized based on the mana expended and the duration changes to 5 minutes/mana, concentration. Whenever a creature starts its turn in the sphere, it must make a Fortitude saving throw. Undead and oozes have disadvantage on this saving throw.

    On a failure, a creature takes 1d8 radiant damage and is blinded until the end of its next turn.

    On a success, it takes half as much damage.

    You can increase the damage by 1d8 for every two additional mana expended.

    Additionally, this light makes it impossible for the creature to benefit from being invisible while in the bright light.
