The dark spell conjures forth a magical inky darkness to surround the
target.  If the target is omitted, the caster will cast the darkness
around himself.  The more skilled one is, the darker it becomes.
This spell can also be used to attempt to counter the effects of
magical light prayer and spell like orb and light.
Casting dark on anyone but the caster himself/herself will be
considered a hostile action if the target's reaction is set to
"ATTACK" (catch on).

Dark can be cast with the argument 'dispell' if the caster wishes to
remove all darkness they have covered themselves with.

When used by a Dracolich, this spell has a below average drain on the
Dracolich's phylactery.
