Pathfinder House Rules: Magical Light and Magical Darkness

Pathfinder’s rules for magical light and darkness are a bit of a tangled mess. I realised this the other day (in session #69 of my Shattered Star campaign) when a hydradaemon cast deeper darkness and the party’s cleric cast daylight in response.

Shattered Star #75: The Final Battle

At the end of last session, we left our heroes battling several incorporeal undead. The party were well-prepared for such foes and lashed them repeatedly with bursts of positive energy. Before long, the creatures—belatedly identified as a spectre and four wraiths—were destroyed.

The Gloamhold Look

A subtle and ancient curse of great potency and malignancy lurks within Gloamhold’s gloomy, dust-shrouded halls. Curiously, it seems only those who dwell in the world of men—humans, elves, dwarves and the like—fall prey to its malign influence. Those accustomed to living underground in the permanent dark of the ancient fortress’s ebon reaches appear immune to its effect.
