Description: Darkvision is the extraordinary ability to see with no light source at all. The weakest darkvision is only capable of seeing out to 20 feet, while the strongest darkvision can see as far as 300 feet, assuming no objects block line of sight. Darkvision grants sight in any light or darkness, except true darkness.

Darkvision is black-and-white only (colors cannot be discerned). It does not allow characters to see anything that they could not see otherwise -- invisible objects are still invisible, and illusions are still visible as what they seem to be. Likewise, darkvision subjects a creature to gaze attacks normally. The presence of light does not spoil darkvision.

Creatures with darkvision also have Standard Vision, unless the creature's description specifically states otherwise.
