8.6.4 Sciomancers

Residing in the frozen north, the Sciomancers have bonded together in the 
common pursuit of control and power. Gifted with a direct link to the dark 
realm of Shadow, they focus their training on controlling and shaping its 
destructive energies into weapons to destroy their enemies and safeguard 
their home, Spinesreach.

Through their skills in Sciomancy, these Mages of Shadow harness the raw 
fury of Air, Earth and Shadow into a tremendous force of elemental might. 
They create powerful vibrations within the earth thanks to their knowledge 
in Crystalism, causing a multitude of effects meant to bring their enemies 
to their knees. They also have the ability to create Enchantments that can 
help strengthen others.

Though not all of their abilities result in destruction, access to the 
realm of Shadow has granted them a wide variety of spells, the secrets of 
which are known only to those within their collective.

Despite having once held all elements in their hands, they consider 
themselves enhanced rather than crippled by the loss of Fire and Water. 
Instead, they revel in experimenting and testing the limits of their 
connection with the Shadow Plane. The Sciomancers are a force to be 
respected and woe to those who would cross their path.
