Child of Night - Shadow Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
They prefer to call themselves "black transmogrifists," but most know them as children of night. They are more than spellcasters, more than scholars, and - they claim - more than mortal. For those who have the will and the depth of knowledge to join their ranks, ascension beyond the earthly form awaits, for the children of night become the stuff of shadow itself.
Children of night must be tied to the Plane of Shadow through their ability to perform magic involving darkness. The path of the shadowcaster is the most direct route, although some wizards, sorcerers, and clerics can progress into this class. Few bards or druids embark on this journey of self-transformation.
