A cloud of glittering golden particles covers everyone and
everything in the area, blinding creatures and visibly outlining
invisible things. Blindness lasts for the duration of the spell.
All within the area are covered by the dust, which cannot be
removed and continues to sparkle until it fades.
In addition to the obvious effects, a blinded creature suffers
a 50% miss chance in combat (all opponents have full
concealment), loses any Dexterity bonus to AC, grants a +2 bonus
to opponents attack rolls (they are effectively invisible),
moves at half speed, and suffers a 4 penalty on most
Strength- and Dexterity-based skills.
