Blind Races

Being Blind as a Bat

Races with no special method for seeing or detecting enemies (like Infravision, Lowlight Vision, or Scent) must always make sure that they have means available to them to produce light. They should replace their starting torches with lanterns as soon as possible for the extended light radius provided. Spellcasters will want to get a light providing spell to use as a light source or as a backup. It is very common to lose torches and lanterns to things like Shatter spells, water-based attacks, and water traps. For a longer term solution, characters of these races will want to improve their vision and detection methods by learning spells, gaining levels in certain Prestige Classes (Sentinel or Shadowdancer both help), or choosing feats like Blind Fighting.
