Yeah, an "artifact" staff. So, an artifact staff that has Light Area as an activation. I don't follow the leap from - Gandalf has an artifact staff that he can use in darkness - to every mage should be able to cast light in darkness. That intellectual leap I do not understand.

We are not not canonic to LotR, even close. Eg Gandalf didn't need spellbooks to cast spells, while in V you can't cast spells you've learned without having spellbook in backpack So there is no leaps, just assumptions. Being able to cast light spell in the darkness is quite logical.

We will have to agree to disagree, as I find it illogical (as, so far, does the poll).

Tangar--
I don't quite see much advantage. It's been a long time since I last ran out of light. Second, the first time it happens, it's a relatively painless lesson in taking enough consumables into the dungeon. Plus, until I find ESP (or an Arkenstone), I carry rods of light, so I'm almost never completely without light.

That said, I agree that it should be possible to cast spells from other creatures' lighting.

Yes, he had an artifact staff (which don't exist in Angband, but maybe one day?) I think I made a post about such staves not terribly long ago.
