Summoning to mind a dark refl ection of the
world around you, you inscribe a doorway
into the air with your hand, opening a
portal to the Plane of Shadow.

You open a 10-foot-diameter portal onto
the Plane of Shadow, allowing you and
creatures you designate within range
to pass into that area. This does not
grant you the ability to open another
such portal automatically, so the spell
is often used as a temporary hiding
place or a method of gaining access to
the Plane of Shadow.

The portal remains for the duration
of the spell, and other creatures can
pass through it in either direction if
they make a Will save. The portal is
invisible from the Material Plane and
looks like a white hole on the Plane of

You must be in a region of heavy
shadows to cast shadowfade. The spell
can be cast only on a plane coexistent
with the Plane of Shadow (DMG 152),
and it cannot be cast on the Plane of
Shadow itself.
