Default Re: Time for a wizard!

I was thinking about this the other day. If a wizard has a Fireball held at the end of his/her staff, how much light does it give off? An extra light source for the party, without taking up weapon hands (wizard already holding the staff) seems like a nice "extra".

And this allows for a free*, ready to use spell for the first round of combat (or later if aimed). I know a fully powered explosive fireball can pretty much end a fight with fodder before it begins.

*Assuming they casted, powered up, then recovered energy.
