Using Magical Items
Shadow walkers devote a great deal of time to the mastery of magical devices. They can use any item intended for thieves but not those fashioned specifically for bards. They can use magical items intended for wizards as well but must always take care when doing so. Because of this, they suffer a -4 penalty to their initiative roll when using magical items intended for wizards in combat.
A shadow walker.s eyes are naturally attuned to darkness and are able to register more subtle illumination sources than normal humans can. They can see normally in all but absolute darkness. The range of their night vision is equal to 10 feet per experience level.
Upon reaching the 3rd level of experience, a shadow walker is able to raise a semimagical aura of darkness about his body. This increases his ability to hide in shadows by 25% if the character has at least one round to prepare himself. Once the shadow aura is erected, he can maintain it for a number of rounds equal to his level. This power can be used three times each day.
When a shadow walker attains the 8th level of experience, he can assume a shadowy form. This makes him invisible (as the spell) in dimly lighted areas and increases his chance to hide in shadows by 50% in other places. As with the shadow aura, this requires one round to
manifest and can be maintained for a number of rounds equal to the level of the character. This ability may be employed three times in any 24-hour period. When wrapped in his cloak of shadows, the character is uncommonly vulnerable to light-based attacks. Any weapon or spell that causes damage via light has a +2 bonus and causes normal plus half damage. Saving throws the character makes as a result of light-based special attacks have a -2 penalty.
After he reaches 12th level, a shadow walker becomes truly attuned to shadows and darkness. If he has one round to mentally prepare himself, the character may totally transform himself into an animate shadow. The effects of this power are similar to those of the wraithform spell, except the character is also invisible in all but the brightest light. As with the lesser abilities of this class, the character can maintain this power for a number of
rounds equal to his level and can employ this power three times in any 24-hour period. When in this form, however, the character is very vulnerable to light-based attacks. Any saving throw the character makes against such an attack suffers a -4 penalty. Any attack against the character that causes damage with light inflicts double damage and has a +4 bonus on any applicable attack roll.
much of the shadow walker’s early training is in the magical arts. Where other thieves might be learning how to make the best use of minute cracks and protrusions to scale a seemingly impassable wall, novice shadow walkers are mastering the spider climb and jump spells that allow them to do the same. The ability of a shadow walker to cast spells is greatly restricted compared to a true wizard.
They never gain the ability to learn spells of higher than 4th level. In addition, they are restricted to memorizing no more than four spells from each level. So a 20th-level wizard has the ability tocast no fewer than 37 spells per day, but a shadow walker of the same level is limited to 16 enchantments. Shadow walkers are only able to learn spells from the Abjuration, Alteration, Illusion/Phantasm, and Lesser/Greater Divination schools. If the additional magical spells provided in the Tome of Magic are used in the campaign, characters can use only the spells from that book that fall into one of the above schools.
Shadow walkers cannot employ spells from the Wild Magic or various Elemental schools. Shadow walkers do not have the ability to research new magical spells or create magical items. While they are able to master the art of magic when another teaches them its finer points, the subtle refinements required to experiment with the supernatural remain forever beyond their reach.

Hoopak: (Dmg 1d6+2; Spd/6 2/PB)
The hoopak (sling-staff) is the most common of kender tools. This 5’, ironwood staff has a short spike attached to its tip, which doubles as a spear or bo stick and inflicts the noted damage. The staff’s other end is forked and laced with gut. A stone may be flung by either planting the blade end of the hoopak in the earth and bending the staff back to sling the stone, or whirling the hoopak overhead as a traditional sling-staff. This tool acts like a bullroar when whirled in the air, creating a low thrumming sound. Its uses include
• throwing as a spear,
• striking as a staff, spd 4, 1d6 dmg
• shooting or slinging stones,
• prying with the blade,
• picking apples with the gut, and
• whirling as a bullroar.
