A monster made of shadows.

Original D&D Edit

This creature first appeared in The Strategic Review 1-4 as a creature that Illusionists could summon. It is conjured with the Illusionist spell Summon Shadow. It is essentially the same as an Invisible Stalker.

They are faultless trackers who follow their orders until they are completed (at which time, they return to their home dimension). They must be destroyed to be stopped from completing their mission. Shadows resent long-term missions (such as guarding the summoner for a month or more), and may seek to pervert the spirit of their duty while adhering to the letter of it if displeased with their task, turning against the caster -- a DM can roll 2d6 for every day or week that service is required, and a roll of 12 indicates the creature turns against the summoner in this way.
