Shadeswarm                       Path of the Silver Light Attack

Duration: Varies; up to 10 hours                      Minimum Cost: 35 mana
Range: All shades in room; single PC or Mob

Syntax: cast 'shadeswarm' <target>

By calling upon all shades in the room, a follower of the silver light
may direct them to haunt her foe. While all shades might be so convinced,
evil shades will be more inclined to answer the call, as will goodly shades
if the target is himself evil. The effects of this haunting will vary
according to the power of the shades themselves, but have been known to
include vertigo, confusion, dreadful nightmares, painful magic casting, a
blockage of one's spirit, temporary loss of memory regarding one's trained
skills, and loss of mana as the ghosts wreak havoc on mind and soul alike.
