The Wailing Darkness

Cost: 2m, 1wp; Type: Shape Spell
Target: Medium Range
Duration: One Hour
The Necromancer speaks the prophecy of the Endless Night, the final days after the Unconquered Sun finally plunges into Oblivion. As they finish, they throw a cloud of black ash from the poplar tree, soaked with blood into the air, and a piece of Creation is plunged into complete blackness.

All sources of light within the area are extinguished, including anima banners. The air is filled with unearthly cries, the mournful howls of lost spirits echoing as the wind picks up, churning in a slow, ponderous cyclone. Mechanically, this serves as a -3 External penalty to Awareness for all within, and anyone outside looking in, save for the Necromancer themself, who can see perfectly. Those within are also treated as having partial cover from all attacks. (-1 Melee penalty, -2 ranged) Incidentally, this also shields those within from the effects of sunlight.
