Gloom Magic (SP)

A rogue with this talent gains the ability to cast darkness two times per day as a spell-like ability. The darkness created by this ability does not impair the rogue’s vision.

Magical Racial Traits

Spell-like ability: Tieflings can use darkness once per day as a spell-like ability. The caster level for this ability equals the tiefling’s class level.

Emphasis mine. Now my question is, Gloom Magic allows the rogue's vision to not be impaired, but is that only for the 2 uses of Darkness that it grants, or for all uses of Darkness, granted from this talent, the racial ability, or even Street Magician's spells?

The reason I ask is I see 2 possible interpretations of spell-like abilities: they are pooled together and are all 1 ability, thus benefiting from Gloom Magic, or they are separate SLA's that just happen to be the same spell.

The tiefling can only see in the Darkness created by Gloom Magic:

The darkness created by this ability does not impair the rogue’s vision.

Any other source of darkness will still require your character to have the darkvision or see in darkness special abilities.
