    Class Features
    The following are the class features of the shadow magus.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency:
    A shade is proficient with all simple weapons, as well as with light armor, but no shield proficiency.

    Shadow Pool:
    Accumulate a pool of shadow power that can be used to manipulate, alter, and grant special effects and abilities for them to use. The pool is level + Wis Mod. This pool regenerates every day after rest.

    Mysteries:
    Shadow Magus have access to Spell-Like Abilities, called mysteries that require the expendature of shadow points to cast. The Dc to overcome a mystery is 10+Mystery Level+Wis Mod

    Apprentice of Mysteries - Access to lvl 1 mysteries at lvl 1, access to lvl 2 mysteries at lvl 4, access to lvl 3 mysteries at lvl 7. The cost of these mysteries is equal to their level

    Initiate of Mysteries - Access to lvl 4 mysteries at lvl 10, access to lvl 5 mysteries at lvl 13, access to lvl 6 mysteries at lvl 16. The cost of all lvl 1 mysteries is 0pts and the cost of all lvl 2 mystereis is 1pt. All other costs are equal to their level

    Master of Mysteries - The cost of all lvl 1 and lvl 2 mysteries are 0pts. The cost of all lvl 3 and lvl 4 mysteries are 2 pts.

    Shadow Jump:
    Starting at level 2 a shadow magus can disappear into an area of dim light or darker and come out another one 30ft away per day. Every 2 levels after they can add an additional 30 ft. This ability can be broken up by any increment of 10ft

    Umbral Sight:
    30'Darkvision; for 1pt a shadow magus may grant umbral sight to an ally for 1 minute per level
    at lvl 11 umbral sight extends to 60' and can pierce magical darkness. At level 17 can percieve through darkness as if in bright light and gain blindsense 30ft w/in dim light or darker areas.

    Sustaining Shadow:
    At lvl 9 a shadow magus no longer requires the need to eat sleep or breathe (must still rest for 1 hour to regain shadow points). At lvl 15 the shadow magus also becomes immune to non magical poison, diseases, and the negative effects of aging.

    Visage of Ahriman:
    A shadow magus' soul is now native to the plane of shadow. If they are ever slain their body disperses into wisps of black smoke and fade away. Within 24 hours their body appears at a random loacation within the Plane of Shadow and 24 hours after that they are resurrected as if by the True Resurrection spell.

    Subtle Shadows:
    Mysteries cast are given the subtle feat and upon killing an enemy the creature comes back as a shade/shadow of the same HD under the Shadow Magus' control.

    Edit: mistakenly believed this was a direct port of shadowcasters and magi. Carry on.

    Aside from that: 3rd 11th and 17th levels lack something like a shadow bolt weapon? Use that to deliver the effects the affects of touch based mysteries. I mean the description does say ranged combatant

    Yes, those levels are painfully dead - especially 17th, which grants you 4 "awesome" skill points (which count for nothing at those levels).

    @AMAnar: At the very least, move Master of Mysteries down one level (and find something worthwhile to put into 3 & 11).

    i'm thinking of moving Subtle Shadows to lvl 17 and visage of ahriman to lvl 20

    I was thinking of maybe adding in something like rogue talents sprinkled in throughout the class or bonus feats.
