True light conjures a glowing, streaming mass of true light, one of the three Principles of nature. The mage casts the spell by imagining all he believes true to be coalescing before him, and he shapes these beliefs into the light. The light illuminates anything within 10 meters. True light drives away darkness, whether physical, mental or spiritual. In addition the mage may concentrate upon one being within the radius of the light, one being per round. The mage generates an effect total for the spell. Lies and evil intentions appear as shadows about the creature if the effect total is greater than the Mind of the creature (if lying) or the Spirit (if harboring evil intentions).
