Do spells that would normally extend beyond the range of the lowered line of sight due to Darkness/Nightstalker still reach to their full normal range? Glaciate for example.

Re: Sif Muna is the new magic Trog

That's why I recommended taking piety off the channeling. Faster than pressing '5' in game turns. Maybe make the mana regen slower than it is now, just take away the disincentive to use the skill. Maybe put the food cost back in to make there 'some' cost, and give mummies some value back?
