This would mean that since the world of Majik is a round one,
Eternal Night spell would in fact be Stop the Sun so, that it 
won't rise at this location again. Ie: It would shine at the other
side of the ball eternally or until someone makes it move again
and would not shine on the casting side. .. not good for either side
in the long run. .. in fact, it sounds so big thingy that i am afraid
that we are pretty much unable to simulate it. (drought on one side,
freezing on the other side..)

This brings me to another point:
Many magical effects will have major effect on a 3D environment. Are
there any magical effects in existence yet? I hope the coders have
considered these things, so we will have a functional 3D environment
with magic one day.

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, 
	for they are subtle and quick to anger.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
	for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
