Shadow-Touched Creature

Some beasts and monstrosities dwelling in areas infused with the power of Shadow become corrupted by the power, what are commonly referred to as “Shadow-touched” or “Shadow” creatures. The forces of Shadow strengthen the creatures but also make them evil and aggressive.

Places, items, and even creatures can be touched with the power of Shadow, making them conduits for its power and influence.

Type. The creature gains the (shadowspawn) tag.

Skills. The Shadow-touched creature gains proficiency in Stealth, if it does not have it already, and doubles its proficiency bonus.
