Ever since the beginning of time, man has yearned to destroy the sun. With this spell, a magic-user can do the next best thing.
The lamp of inverse light conjures a mote of exotic matter that emits a light-neutralizing anti-radiance: a perfect, impenetrable darkness in a 30-foot radius centered on the caster. The spell lasts for a number of rounds equal to the caster’s level or until cancelled by the caster.
1 – The darkness-emitting matter is too unstable to exist more than an instant before energetically decaying. As it annihilates, it emits radition in a 30-foot radius that (Roll 1d4): 1 – leeches the color out of everything, 2 – prematurely ages everything by a number of years equal to the level of the caster, 3 – turns soft tissues completely transparent but doesn’t affect bones or non-living matter, 4 – fuses and animates shadows into a hostile, semi-corporeal entity with hit dice equal to the caster’s level.
2 – The spell appears to work as normal, but when it ends, everything within the area of effect is gone, vanished from the the face of the earth.
3 – The spell appears to work as normal, but the darkness is emanating from a dimensional rift connected to a shadowy demi-plane. The rift allows for two-way traffic between the two planes for the duration of the spell and closes when the spell expires.
4 – The caster’s eyes turn into black orbs as their sense of sight inverts. For the duration of the spell, the caster can see normally in total darkness, but is completely blind in daylight (or its equivalent).
5 – The darkness rapidly strobes on and off – it’s super annoying. Everyone in the area of effect suffers disadvantage on any activity that requires sight and magic-users must succeed a saving throw versus magic to cast a spell within the area of effect.
6 – The exotic matter isn’t contained properly; it won’t dissipate at the end of the spell. Everything it touches is converted into more darkness-emitting matter. If left unchecked, it’ll eventually consume the entire planet.
