    Character with Shadow Abilities

    Hey there, do you have any idea what would be a melee class that uses shadow skills (like cloaking the environment in shadows, teleporting through the shadows or causing the shadows of his/her enemies to turn against them) which is not a rouge or an assassin, that would fit into the diablo universe? The only idea that I got is a shadow-demon whose ancestors where demons & nephalem... but I'm not satisfied with that...

    You do realize this is the offtopic forum, no diablo talk here?

    Disregarding OTF, a warlock or dark knight style character could make sense.

    This guy



    Short read but perfectly done.

    In his introduction to the novel he mentioned that he tried to capture some of the exotic landscapes so frequent in Jack Vance's (RIP - He died last week ) work.

    Zelazny wrote it in first draft, no rewrites.

    The novel is set in a world that is tidally locked. Thus one side of the planet is always in light, and the other in darkness. Science rules on the dayside, while magic holds sway in the night. Powerful magical entities live on the night side of the planet, and for the most part the entities' magical powers emanate from distinct loci. Jack of Shadows (a.k.a. Shadowjack), the main character, is unique among the magical beings in that he draws his power not from a physical location but from shadow itself. He is nearly incapacitated in complete light or complete darkness, but given access to even a small area of shadow, his potency is unmatched.

    One of my favourite novels, Magic 8-Bob. Other-worldly has rarely been done so well
