SHADOW DISCIPLE: Shadow disciples are born with the innate ability to wield magic of the Shadow Weave, usually granted as a blessing from Shar, the Nightsinger. Like their equivalent, the sorcerer, they wield the power of their native magic, the Shadow Weave, with a level of skill that other spellcasters would envy.
