By drawing a circle of black chalk up to 15 feet in diameter and chanting for one minute, you open a portal directly into the Shadow Realm. The portal fills the chalk circle and appears as a vortex of inky blackness, nothing can be seen through it. Any object or creature that passes through the portal instantly arrives safely in the Shadow Realm. The portal remains open for one minute or until you lose concentration on it, and it can be used to travel between the Shadow Realm and the chalk circle, in both directions, as many times as desired during the spell's duration.
This spell can only be cast as a ritual.
By channeling the essence of the Shadow Realm into yourself, this spell imbues you with wings of shadow. For the duration of the spell, you gain a fly speed of 60 feet and a new attack action: nightwing breath.
Nightwing Breath (recharge 4–6). You exhale shadow-substance in a 30-foot cone. Each creature in the area takes 5d6 necrotic damage, or half damage with a successful Dexterity saving throw.
Your spell targets up to 2 creatures within range. Each creature must make a Wisdom saving throw. If the saving throw fails, the creature perceives its allies as hostile, shadowy monsters, and it must attack its nearest ally. An affected creature repeats the saving throw at the end of its turn, ending the effect on itself with a successful save.
At Higher Levels. If shadow monsters is cast with a 5th-level or higher spell slot, one additional creature can be targeted for each slot level above 4th.
You create a shadow-tunnel between your location and one other creature you can see within range. You and that creature instantly swap positions. If the target creature is unwilling to exchange places with you, it can resist the effect by making a Charisma saving throw. If the save succeeds, the spell has no effect.
You say a quick invocation to create a black nimbus around your hand, then hurl three rays of darkness at one or more targets in range. The rays can be divided between targets however you like. Make a ranged spell attack for each target (not each ray), each ray that hits does 1d10 cold damage. A target that was hit by any number of rays must make a successful Constitution saving throw or be unable to use a reaction until the start of its next turn.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell at 3rd level or higher, you create one additional ray for each level above 2nd.
() You conjure a shadowy road between points to create a bridge or path where there was none before. This can bridge a chasm or create a smooth path through difficult terrain to speed movement. The dark path is 10 feet wide and up to 50 feet long. It can support up to 500 pounds of weight at one time. A creature that adds more weight than the path can support sinks through the path as if it didn't exist.
You shape shadows into claws that grow from your fingers and drip inky blackness. You can make a melee spell attack with these claws that does 1d10 cold damage, and the claws have a reach of 10 feet.
You reach out with a hand of decaying shadows. Make a ranged spell attack. If it hits, the target takes 2d8 necrotic damage and must make a Constitution saving throw. If it fails, its visual organs are enveloped in shadow until the start of your next turn, causing it to treat all lighting as if it's one step lower in intensity (it treats bright light as dim, dim light as darkness, and darkness as magical darkness).
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, the damage increases by 1d8 for each slot level above 1st.
