The illumination spell (Lumen) is a spell that, when cast, lights up the tip of a wizard or witch's wand or staff.[1] With a staff, it can cause both ends to blaze.[2] It is used by Wizardry in the same manner in which Folk use flashlights, to see in the dark.[1][2]

Examples of usage Edit

Etymology 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.
