Special abilities Edit

A shadow fiend has the usual undead immunities to critical hits, death magic, disease, level drain, ability drain, mind-affecting spells, paralysis, poison, and sneak attacks. Furthermore, these monsters are incorporeal (which implies 50% concealment).

A shadow fiend can cast darkness once per day with a caster level of 14.

Due to the presence of a special AI script (namely x2_ai_shadow), a shadow fiend normally forgoes its regular attack to conduct a shadow attack every round. However, interrupting the attack, such as by knocking down the shadow fiend, can cause the monster to resort to its normal claw/claw/bite attacks.

Notes Edit

  • Interestingly, although this creature is a denizen of the lower planes, it is categorized as a member of the undead in Neverwinter Nights, not as an outsider, most probably due to its resemblance to the undead shadow.
