Re: (TFT) Illusory Light?

From: Thorn <edt@dopey.ne.mediaone.net>

Oyez, Oyez, assembled worthies!

Before the court today, the case of Illusory Light.

Or more clearly, does an Illusion of a firey or glowing object emit
light such that it may be used to read by?

If either the caster or the person(s) viewing the page actually knew what was on that page then yes. To restate. If the Wizard knows what is on the page then yes, the information would appear for all to see. If anyone viewing the page under an illusiory light knows what woud be seen then yes, everyone else (including the caster) could see the lite text. In support of this stance, and to further illuminate on the question at hand, Here is a small qoute. It is describing what an illusion of a fighter with a sword could paint on another person. Specificaly they had just been talking about how the viewers of an illusion contribute psychic energy to the effect of the illusion.

"If you are killed by an illusion, your armor and clothes will seem to be hacked; wounds will appear on your body, and blood will flow. But after the fight is over and the attacking illusion is gone, all the apparent injury to your gear will vanish - and there you'll lie, hacked to bits inside your undamaged armor - a victim of the wizard's cunning and your own imagination".
    - Advanced Wizard

In conclusion, if it please the court, I submit as physical evidence the first half of the second sentence from "Images and Illusions" Page 4 of AW. It States "A wizard can create an image or illusion of anything real, . . ." Light is real. Hence it can be represented with an illusion.
