Children of the Divine Order
Darkness magic is directly in competition with [Light]] magic, as it deals with the absence of light. Often practitioners of darkness magic can also tap into shadows (the darkness made from blocking light) as well.
Darkness magic is most commonly used to overcome situations where you do not wish to be seen. If you can tap into shadows as well a wider array of options becomes available as a shadow can be sent off to do tasks like observing the enemy at a known location or causing distractions.
Create an Advantage
Darkness magic can create advantages related to darkness such as ‘enveloped in darkness’ which is perfect to hide in or ‘blinded by darkness’ which can cripple a foe. If you have access to shadows you can also bind opponents using their shadows.
Darkness cannot be used as an attack.
Darkness can only be used as a defense against light.
