This spell allows the caster to briefly see into the Shadow Realm for the duration of the spell. This allows the caster to see the shadow image of an opponent. By doing so, the caster may detect invisible or hidden foes and ignore the miss chances created by spells such as blur and displacement.
Shadow sight does not allow the caster to enter the Plane of Shadow in any way, nor does it create a portal of any kind. It merely allows the caster to see into the plane in a limited manner.
Arcane material component: A piece of coal wrapped in black silk.
