Shadow

Shadow magic is magic drawn from the shadowlands, a place that is a dark reflection – or shadow – of the material world of Anvar. Channellers use the Shadow list to create spells of concealment, or to draw on the shadowlands directly to give them an edge in combat or quick movement.

Shadow mages tend to pursue careers in information gathering and assassination, though a few use the list as an aid in skirmishing or even research into the shadowlands. In the case of the latter extreme caution is needed, as there is no guarantee that a mage will return from a trip there – particularly if they happen to cross over in a place where the draugr once rose.
