Twilight Dancer[edit]

The moves of those few insane ones are both intimidating and beautiful in a mysterious way.
—Maloran, Human Wizard, On the Race of the Twilight Realm

Prerequisites: Twili, Twili Frenzy feat

The Dark Interlopers were exiled to the Twilight Realm ages ago for using their forbidden, dark magic. They have evolved into the race of the Twili, who have this dark magic flowing in their veins. The Twili mostly accepted their life in separation from the natural world, while a few have been driven insane due to loneliness and missing the light.

Those mad Twili have started their own, separate society, where they learn to fight, combining dark magic and martial prowess into a deadly dance of weapon and shadow. The mad Twili, known as the Twilight Dancers in regular Twili society, have set their goal to reopen the gate to the world of light and rain death and destruction on its dwellers.

Adopting this path immediately sharpens your wild instincts, allowing you to dance around the battlefield while firing orbs of darkness at your enemies and slashing those who try to catch you. You may choose to use your powers to destroy the world of light and return to the Twilight Realm as a champion of your people, or maybe try to amaze the light-dwellers and become a renowned hero, a mysterious figure of legend.
