Hello I am relatively new to Pathfinder and I ran into an interaction that I don't quite know how it will resolve as a Drow with Darkvision.
As a Drow with the feats, Drow Nobility and Improved Drow Nobility. I can cast Deeper Darkness and Dancing Lights twice a day. With Deeper Darkness I lower the light level by 2 steps out 60 feet, so Bright light becomes dim, normal becomes dark, while dim and dark become supernaturally dark.
Dancing lights on the other hand lets you create 4 magical light sources (Torches, spheres, or will-o'-wisps like orbs), or one faintly glowing humanoid shape. The reference I read says that a torch creates normal light out 20 feet and increases the light level by one another 20 feet out up to normal light level.
My question is what would happen if I cast Deeper Darkness on an object in dim light to create supernaturally dark and then I cast dancing lights. How would the dancing lights of the torches, will-o'-wisps orbs and the faintly glowing humanoid one interact with the deeper darkness environment.
If I understand correctly the torches will turn 20 feet of the deeper darkness to normal light and then another 20 feet will be darkness, but I am unsure how the orbs and the humanoid one will interact with deeper darkness. Thank you for your time and knowledge
