The SendingStone review

The spell Dancing Lights is a valuable utility tool for spellcasters. Though it is a level 0 spell and has a casting time of only one action, it can create up to four magical lights that the caster can control. The duration of the spell is up to one minute, allowing for extended use. However, concentration is required to maintain the spell. The material components are relatively straightforward, and can be obtained without much difficulty. The spell is versatile, and can be used in a variety of situations, making it an essential spell for any caster.

Dancing Lights is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Dancing Lights Pathfinder edition. Want to use Dancing Lights in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
