It goes further back than the 1980's. It's based on fantasy books by Jack Vance, who published his first book in 1950.

comment Can you use spell-like abilities in a grapple?
Yup, this application of the rules has weird consequences. Note that I don't recommend the approach, I posted the answer because I believe there is value in addressing the point of view.

@Simanos, the way I read it, illumination is a feature of the environment. Characters with low light and/or darkvision treat some squares as being better lit than they actually are for the purpose of seeing.

I'd call it an unlimited loop, but yes, that is a consequence of allowing a prone target to be tripped.
