Comm units have a flashlight that emits a 20 ft cone built into them.

The Solar Manifestation (Solarian weapon or armor) sheds dim light in a 20ft radius. So Pigi shouldn’t have any trouble fighting in darkness (at least for melee)


Or Quallos, crab boy, whatever he’s called


You’re correct. Dim light is still 20% miss chance, but its a side benefit to the solarian mote. DID YOU KNOW that if a Solarian choses a black hole to represent her manifestation, she sheds 20 feet of darkness? 🙂

Pigi has low-light vision, so the dim light isn’t a concern. Good to know about the darkness though, I imagined it like Interstellar where the glow would be from the corona around it.


Most creatures that have darkvision can only see in the dark up to 60ft. So in normal light, a black hole Solarian would enjoy a 20% miss chance outside of 60 ft. In dim lighting, the Solarian would not be a legal target outside of 60 ft. Not a bad buff.


“You also choose whether your solar manifestation (in any form) either glows brightly with one color common to stars (including blue, red, white, or yellow) or is the perfect darkness of a black hole. A glowing solar manifestation, regardless of its form, sheds dim light in a 20-foot radius.”

It doesn’t shed darkness in any meaningful manner. The main benefit is that it doesn’t shed light, thus not messing up Stealth.
