I stand corrected: Eternal night could work like that too. There are
many ways to create similar effects. Some of those many ways could even
avoid nasty repercussions like eternal winter as a side effect of eternal night.
This can be generalized to all magic.

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards,

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
	for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
