Sunglasses and Infravision
« on: June 24, 2018, 09:00:59 AM »
Unless I'm wrong (as I sometimes am, believe it or not ;) ), infravision works off of temperature. If so, does wearing dark glasses affect it? The glasses would be a solid wall of a different temperature, wouldn't it? And how would this affect a drow wearing shades in the daylight? Do they turn the infravision off? Just a question that came up over coffee.

Infrared light is polarized just like visible light, so sunglasses ought to affect infravision pretty much the same way they affect normal vision.  They'd make thingsā€¦ dimmer.

Thanks. Of course, now I have this image in my mind of all these Underdark races walking around in Ray Bans, Vuarnats, etc.!
