The illumination spell (Lumen) is a spell that, when cast, lights up the tip of a wizard or witch's wand or staff. With a staff, it can cause both ends to blaze. It is used by Wizardry in the same manner in which Folk use flashlights, to see in the dark.
Examples of usage Edit
The incantation lumen is a Latin noun meaning "light". Accurately written it is lūmen, with a diacritic marking a double u vowel. The genitive form is lūminis.
Lūmen comes from the Proto-Indo-European *léwksmn̥, derived from the root *lewk- (“bright”). It is equivalent to lūx + -men.
