let there be light

So how is the school lit?

By magic, of course.  Even if they use candles.

But when I want to describe a scene, it does matter where the shadows fall, and how dark the rooms get.

Think I'm gonig to make it point sources of light rather than making the walls glow or something.  Potential for shadows and the like.

And might even prove plot significant.
