The Province of Amalur
The Shadowfell, sometimes simply called The Plane of Shadow, is a parallel plane from which necrotic energies and shadow magic stems. It exists as a reflection or “echo” of the Prime Material Plane except that it is a bleak, desolate place full of decay and death.
This dimension is on of black, gray, and white where most other color has been leeched from everything. It is a place of darkness that hates the light, where the sky is a black vault with neither sun nor stars.
The Shadow Plane overlaps the material plane, and many landmarks from the material plane can be seen in the Shadowfell. Although there reflections are usually warped versions of their former selves. The most powerfully warped areas are known as Domains of Dread.
The only solace people within the Shadowfell have are the Bonfires which provide light and purity.
