You create one or more motes of shining light, each about the size of your fingertip. They hang stationary in the air in squares of your choice within 5 squares of you. You can also choose to bind a lantern to a creature (including yourself). The lantern then hovers over that creature’s head wherever the creature goes. Each lantern sheds dim light within 2 squares around it (similar to a candle).
