A light source is an unofficial term for any source of light that also illuminates nearby surroundings. The simplest way to achieve this is by wielding a torch, which emits (typically) a warm orange fire light that can be seen by nearby players. Some items will produce light without also illuminating the area, notably molten weapons.
