Shadow Creature (CR +1)

Advanced Race Guide pg. 1
Acquired/Inherited Template Inherited
Simple Template No
Usable with Summons Yes

Creatures with the shadow creature template dwell on the Shadow Plane, only rarely venturing onto other, brighter planes, and can be summoned by shadow callers. A shadow creature's CR increases by +1. A shadow creature's quick and rebuild rules are the same.

Rebuild Rules: Senses gains darkvision 60 ft. and low-light vision; Defensive Abilities gains energy resistance and DR as noted on the table below; SR gains SR equal to new CR + 6; Special Abilities Shadow Blend (Su) In any condition of illumination other than bright light, a shadow creature blends into the shadows, giving it concealment (20% miss chance). A shadow creature can suspend or resume this ability as a free action.
