Encroaching Shadows

Encroaching Shadows

6th-level illusion/illumination (ritual)

Casting Time: 1 hour
Range: 150 feet
Components: V, S, M (a drop of blood smeared on a silver rod worth 100 gp)
Duration: 12 hours

You cause menacing shadows to invade an area 200 feet on a side and 50 feet high. Illumination in the area drops one step (from bright light to dim, from dim light to darkness). Any spell that creates light in the area that’s cast using a lower-level spell slot than was used to cast encroaching shadows is dispelled, and spells that create light don’t function in the area if they are of a lower spell slot level. Nonmagical effects can’t increase the level of illumination in the affected area. Spells with “shadow” in their names and spells that create darkness or shadow take effect in the area as if a one-level-higher spell slot was used casting them.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 7th level or higher, the effect lasts for an additional 12 hours for each slot level above 6th.

Ritual Focus. If you expend your ritual focus, the spell’s duration increases by 12 hours and it cannot be dispelled by spells that create light, even if they are cast with a higher-level spell slot.
