Shadow Servant

If a cleric’s job is to spread the word of their god through their voice, then Shadow Servants are their silent hammer, the magical soldiers of their faith, helping to reduce the power of mortals in the name of their God. They travel the world in secret, usually as infiltrators, spies, envoys, and assassins, working to bring down established governments of every kind and their mortal laws. Shadow Servants who’ve completed several quests for their god receive a “Mask of the Chameleon” (DM created item) to hide their true identity.

Hit Die: d6.


To qualify to become a Shadow Servant, a character must fulfill all the following criteria.

Alignment: Any non-good and non-lawful.

Skill: Knowledge (arcana) 4 ranks, 4 ranks of Hide

Spells: Able to cast 3rd-level arcane spells.


The Shadow Servant’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Hide (Dex; armor check penalty), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), and Spellcraft (Int). See Chapter 4 of the Player’s Handbook for skill descriptions.

Skill Points at Each Level: 2 + Int modifier.


All of the following are class features of the Shadow Servant prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Shadow Servants gain no proficiency in armor. However, a Shadow Servant gains proficiency with any “holy” weapon of their god, without any penalty or specialization.

Detect Good (Sp): At will, a Shadow Servant can use detect good, as the spell.

Extra Domain: A Shadow Servant gains the granted power and spell access of the Evil domain at 1st level, the War domain at 4th level, and the Chaos domain at 7th level.

Spells per Day/Spells Known: When a new Shadow Servant level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in whatever spellcasting class in which she could cast 3rd-level arcane spells before she added the prestige class. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (improved chance of controlling or rebuking undead, wild shape ability, and so on). This essentially means that she adds the level of Shadow Servant to the level of whatever other spellcasting class the character has, then determines spells per day accordingly.

If a character had more than one spellcasting class in which she could cast 3rd-level arcane spells before she became a Shadow Servant, the player must decide which class to assign each level of Shadow Servant for the purpose of determining spells per day and spells known

Special Mount: Starting at 4th level, a Shadow Servant can call a special mount (see DM for approval of which kind to choose). See Paladin’s Special Mount for details.

Detect Alignment (Sp): At will, a Shadow Servant of 7th level or higher can use detect alignment, as the spell.

Cleric Spell Access: A 10th-level Shadow Servant can learn and cast spells from the cleric list, even if they don’t appear on the lists of any spellcasting class she has.Such spells are cast as divine spells if they don’t appear on the sorcerer/wizard or bard spell lists. This class feature grants access to the spells, but not extra spells per day.

The 10th-level Shadow Servant can likewise read scrolls

Detect Thoughts (Sp): At will, a 10th-level Shadow Servant can use detect thoughts, as the spell. The save DC is Charisma based.
