A deep tone presages the appearance of an awful shape made half of bone and half of black so concentrated it has taken on form. It looks like a faceless, wingless demon. Its bony claws are long and tipped with the void.

This power calls a creature known as a shadow eft (page 134). The shadow eft appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability. If you can communicate with the eft, you can direct it not to attack, to attack particular enemies, or to perform other actions.

Augment: You can augment this power in one or both of the following ways:
1. For every 4 additional power points you spend, you summon one additional shadow eft.
2. For every 2 additional power points you spend, one shadow eft you call appears already hiding in a shadow you specify (see the creature's hide in shadow ability). However, foes gain an immediate Spot check to detect the hidden eft.
