Default Re: [Basic] Advantage of the Week (#38): Dark Vision, Night Vision

Night Vision (and Dark Vision if allowed) are great advantages for dungeon crawling PCs. Most PCs don't find the points, though. They prefer to rely on "free" Continual Light. Which is indeed "free" if you have a friendly caster, except for the mere 4-yard penalty-free radius (in DF anyway) and the fact that it lets creatures with Dark Vision see you way before you can see them.

Even with plentiful Continual Light, I think it's still worth buying 3 points of Night Vision, to get the penalty-free radius around a Continual Light source from 4 yards to 12 yards.
