Our upcoming Quest article is "Event Lighting at Night."

At Society events, night can have its own magic; darkness masks many a 21st century silhouette and pushes the modern world even further away. Torchlight tourneys are a beloved tradition, and the flicker of flames from campfire and lantern casts a more timeless glow on faces, clothes and gear. But in this day and age where live flame is highly restricted at many a venue and sometimes forbidden entirely, how do you provide safe and sufficient lighting at nighttime and observe site rules without losing that Society period feel?
