The idea is to create the opposite of a Light spell

Evocation [Darkness]
Level: Brd 0, Clr 0, Drd 0, Soc/Wiz 0
Components: V, M/DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touched
Target: Object touched
Duration: 5 min./level
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No
This spell causes an object to give off a shadow larger than it naturally would, darkening any non-magical light in 20 ft and dimming those in an additional 20 ft. The effect is immobile, but it can be cast on a moveable object. Shadow taken into an area of magical light does not function. This spell grants no concealment over that which a character would normally have. Darkvision works inside and through this spell
A darkness spell (one with the darkness descriptor) counters and dispels a light spell (one with the light descriptor) of an equal or lower level.
Arcane Material Component: A small pure black stone or piece of black glass.

So it is a weaker version of the magical darkness spells?

Seems fine to me. Probably should be 10min/level like light tho.

I didn't want it to be overpowered, and it does provide cover whereas light doesn't, but ok i'll use that. and yes its supposed to be weaker than darkness
