Creating a Shadow Imbued
Those who are imbued with illusion and transmutation arcane energy, either innately or through the study of magic, sometimes attract the attention of the natives of the Plane of Shadow. If deemed worthy, the Shades will make contact with one of these creatures, and whisper the rite of shadow into their mind. After completing the ritual, the creature becomes a child of the Shades.
A Shadow Imbued creature takes on a more shadowy form, its outer form appears whispy like smoke (though this infers no bonuses or additional defenses to attacks against the creature).
Size and Type
Creature type changes to Outsider (extraplanar).
same as base creature
Increase base land speed by 10 (material plane). Speed doubles while in the Plane of Shadow

Shadow Jaunt (Sp): Gains the ability to shift to the plane of shadow 3/day. Unlike the Shadow Walk spell, using this ability takes the recipient to the Plane of Shadow. The recipient of this ability sees only black and white while in the Plane of Shadow, and is not visible to any creature on the material plane. Likewise, the recipient cannot see creatures on the material plane, though all terrain remains the same since the two planes overlap one another. Activating this ability is a standard action. Rematerializing on the material plane is a free action, thus ending the "spell". The effects of this ability last up to 2 rounds.
A Shadow Imbued creature retains all the special qualities of the base creature and gains those described below:
