The Lore of Shadow is a force of illusion and deception, relying chiefly on phantasmal attacks to sap the enemy's will (or ability) to fight.
Shadow Wizards are masters of illusion and displacement, able to melt away into the mist as if they had never been there at all. Their spells often have minor cantrips of teleportation woven into the larger sorcery, unnoticed and unseen by the enemy.

A ghostly razor-edged pendulum materialises in the air above the Wizard. On their single word of command, the pendulum swings towards the enemy, picking up speed as it does so. Is the pendulum real enough to kill or is it just a conjurer's trick? Only a fool would stand in its path to find out.
