Gameplay Edit

  • The real power of this spell comes not from to-hit or armor class penalties, which are strong in their own right, but from a undocumented feature that affected hostile enemies have their sight range reduced to nearly 0, since they cannot see anything, they cannot attack anything either
  • Playable thieves can actually benefit from blinded status effects, see Thief#Special abilities for details
