- This poultice is made with clarifying, cleansing herbs, crushed into a soothing paste. The holder dissolves a runed feather into the plaster, which warms gently and turns perfectly clear. They may then anoint the eyes of creatures as noted above. Subjects gain a +1 Arcane Bonus on Perception checks and gain Low-Light Vision. This bonus increases to +2 at 20th level.
- Subjects that already have Low-Light Vision double the distance they can see under the effects of this spell.
- This spell lays an arcane charge on its target(s). If the targets are something other than you or another creature (such as an object or area), the spell lays an arcane charge on you, the caster. Targets which already have an arcane charge present must choose which to keep if the new spell has the same charge type. Only one arcane charge can ever be present on a target at a time.
