Here is the scenario:
Since dispel magic reads: "Choose one creature, object, or magical effect within
range. Any spell of 3rd level or lower on the target ends", the target is valid. The problem is that dispel magic doesn't specify the area of effect. Doesn't the target of the dispel magic spell have to be the creature on which the darkness spell is cast? or can it be dispelled like an AoE dispel effect?
