Aura moderate evocation; CL 8th; Weight —; Price +1 Bonus


An umbral weapon has its own magical store of shadow surges. The surge is often stored in special engravings along the weapon’s length, or within a charm or trinket that hangs from the weapon. The weapon holds a single shadow surge, which refreshes at the start of each day and can be used with any abilities that utilize shadow surges. Whether or not the wielder of an umbral weapon has methods of expending shadow surges (see the Nightblade class), she can always spend 1 shadow surge from the weapon as a free action when making a Stealth check to enshroud herself in darkness, letting her roll twice and take the better result. This ability cannot be placed on ammunition.
