A lit candle is a drainable illumination item.


The candle itself does not do anything. However, if the candle is lit, it will become a light source for the player.

When equipped, a lit candle projects a ring of light around the player stronger than that of a lighter, but weaker than a flashlight. It has a limited usable time, which once drained, will be destroyed.

The lit candle can be put out, extinguishing the light source and reverting it to a candle, where it must be relit.
