You stand at the edge of the canyon and invoke the power. At your feet appears a thin black bridge that arches over the canyon.
You create a ribbonlike, weightless unbreakable bridge. A dark way must be anchored at both ends to solid objects, but otherwise can be at any angle (if either of the objects move relative to the other, the bridge breaks instantly). It must be continuous and unbroken when formed. It is typically used to cross a chasm or a hazardous space. Creatures can move on a dark way without penalty, since it is no more slippery than a typical dungeon floor. Dark way does not impede vision nor does it impede line of effect – it is effectively intangible unless being used by a creature to walk across it.
A dark way can support a maximum of 200 pounds per caster level. Anything that causes the total weight on a dark way to exceed this limit fall through it as if it weren’t there. You never fall through a dark way unless your own weight exceeds the spell’s maximum capacity.
