Shadow Lord
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        THE SHADOW LORD RISESYou are a being of darkness, spreading it around you, engulfing your foes with it, beckoning it to your will….

Circle 1-Shadow Zone SU: You leach the light from the air around you.  As a swift action, you can create a 30ft radius spread, which originates from you and moves with you. All light is absorbs in this radius, leaving it in complete darkness. Normal lights (torches, candles, lanterns, and so forth) are incapable of brightening the area, as are [Light] effects of equal or lower circle. Higher circle [Light] effects are not affected by this ability. You can see through your own shadow zones.
You may dismiss any of your shadow zones as a free action. This is a [Darkness] effect of your highest circle in this track.

Circle 2- Deepest sight SU: You may cast Darkvision once per [Encounter]. [Darkvision] granted by this ability can always pierce your Shadow Zones.
Essence of shadow SU: When you are in darkness, you have Fast healing equal to your KDM.

Circle 3- Ensnaring shadows SU: Opponents that begin their turn in your Show Zones are [Entangled] for 1 [Round]. A fortitude save (DC 10 + ½ level + KOM) negates this effect.
Spreading darkness SU:you may also create Shadow Zone spreads within [Close] range, as long as you do not already have 3 Shadow Zone spreads active from this ability.

Circle 4 - Path of Shadows SU:  Once per move action you take, you may transport yourself to any square within [Close] range that is dark. This movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity, and is not a [Teleport] effect.

Circle 5-Phantom grasp SU:  As a standard action, you can draw an opponent within [Close] range that is in darkness into the shadow, never to be seen again. Make a check of 1d20+your level+your KOM, and compare it to the awareness of your opponents. If it exceeds their awareness, that opponent cannot draw line of sight to the target of this ability for 1 [Round], as if they were using stealth, and cannot hear the target or communicate with them telepathically. If the target makes an offensive action, this effect is broken for all creatures subject to the offensive action. The target must make a will save at the beginning of each [Round] (DC 10+½ your level + your KOM) or be [Slowed] for 1 [Round]. This effect ends at the end of the [Encounter].

Circle 6 - Night Terrors SU: There are things in the dark. Horrible things. Opponents that start their turn in one of your Shadow Zones take your level in damage and are [Shaken]. A will save (DC 10+ ½ level + KOM) negates this effect.

Circle 7- Fear of the Dark SU: Once per [Encounter], as a standard action, you can cause all opponents within your Shadow Zones to become [Confused] and [Panicked] for 2 [Rounds]. A successful will save (DC 10 + ½ level + KOM) reduces this to [Shaken] for 2 [Rounds].

I'm not 100% clear that C1, as worded, actually makes the area dark, as opposed to merely limiting the ability to remove any darkness that may otherwise exist?

Does the save on C6 remove the entire effect, or just the [Shaken]? I'm assuming the former.

If there are no lights, why would the area not be dark? But yeah, I do seem to have ommited a line in my editing.

the entire effect

So just so I'm clear that I'm reading this right, Circle 5 essentially cuts off line of sight and effect to an opponent from it's allies and enemies, but is broken against a target when the victim of this effect takes an offensive action against them, is this correct?

Not line of effect, just line of sight and communication.You are hiding them. you are right about how it gets broken.
You are basically hiding your opponent, semi-isolating them, but you can't use it for your own stealth in combat since attacking people breaks it.
