Not the same torch your ancestors used!  This torch will stay lit even in the strongest rains. Due to my latest development these torches will even stay lit underwater!  They are not as powerful bright as the old way giving off a bright light for 10 feet (5 underwater) and another 10 feet of dimmer light.  So about half what the quick burning torches of old.  These last twice as long!    You can pick up 5 for one Silver Shard at Meung’s Alchemy Shop
