Here in Vintage Story the nights and caves can be quite dark and scary. You may find yourself wanting more light then the environment is providing. Here are some options to help you out. Many of these options can be held in the hand for dynamic lighting to light up the area as you walk around.
Torches are the simplest way to light up the surroundings. They are fairly simple to make. Just cook sticks in a firepit and they'll turn into torches. Torches have a pretty good light level but will burn out over time.
Lanterns are the best for lighting up the area but are also the most expensive. There are two different light levels produced by lanterns depending on whether they have a lining or not. A lining of gold or silver will increase the light output of a lamp.
