An "orb" is an object that either emits or absorbs light, depending on the spell used to conjure it. This is usually so the player using the orb or his/her compatriots may see or regenerate in the room. An "orb" may be another object (depending on the spell that conjures it), but the term is used to refer to any object that emits or absorbs light.

While orbs can be valuable throughout your career, it is considered polite to invest in a way to see in light conditions one could not normally see in, as other races may not be able to see or rest in the light level that you need.

Orbs are conjured by spells such as light and heart of darkness.
