This spell generated moonfire, a beacon of light, whose intensity and color could be controlled by the creator at will, ranging from a faint glow to a clear, bright—though not blinding nor strong enough to harm—light), though moonfire generally had the same intensity as moonlight. Colors could be white, silver, blue-white, or a soft green.
Manifested moonfire was normally always attached to the caster's body, but could move as the creator wished. More experienced clerics, however, could move the moonfire away from their bodies, like the spell dancing lights. The radiance could move around the creator's body as fast as desired, but moved only up to 40 feet (12.2) at a time when away from the caster. The caster could guide it in any direction, through any opening, and cause the glow to appear in any size, up to a volume determined by their power.
Eilistraee herself could also create moonfire at will.
Eilistraee also occasionally chose to gift a male follower or a follower with no priestly powers who nevertheless did her work with the power to temporarily ability to manifest her moonfire, as per this spell. This could be to show her blessing or support, or simply to provide some light. However, the lucky bearer had no control over the moonfire's duration, intensity, or location—such things were solely up to the goddess.
