Quest for Utopia
Shadow is one of the xayraxian elements, and is domain of the god Kiori. The Elemental Plane of Shadow spills over onto the world at the Shrine of Shadow, located within the Sands of Darkness in the country of the Shadowlands.
Upon the ground surrounding the Shrine of Shadow, as well as rarely within the Sands of Darkness, elemental stones of shadow can be found. These stones, like those of the other elements, are guarded fiercely by the keepers. They are considered holy among the followers of Kiori. The stones act as empowerments for shadow-based spells. Anyone in contact with an elemental stone of shadow automatically gain the benefit of the Shadow Grasp metamagic feat once per day, without incurring the required spell level increase, or meeting the prerequisites.
