Name: Shroud-Rending
Guild: None
Status: Dark Arcanoi
Marking(s): None

Shroud-Rending is one of the Dark Arcanoi, and allows Spectres to see the Skinlands and the Quick through the Shroud.

As Spectres are not gifted with Lifesight as wraiths are, Shroud-Rending provides them with the only way to see and spy on the living. However, Spectres cannot appear before the living with this art; to do so requires knowledge of Embody. Nihils tend to form in the places this art is used frequently.

Basic AbilitiesEdit

  • Hold Back the Curtain: A Spectre can extend the duration of an Arcanos' effects in the Skinlands.

Standard PowersEdit

Wraith: The Great War Edit

During the Fourth Great Maelstrom, Shroud-Rending is an imperfect art still in the process of being developed. At this point, Shroud-Rending only has one power: allowing a Mortwight to tear a hole in the Shroud and enter the Skinlands for a brief period. A user of Shroud-Rending finds the Skinlands tangible to them (although not vice versa), and can use Arcanoi that cross the Shroud.

Levels in Shroud-Rending in this period represent how long a user can safely stay in the Skinlands:

  • Menu hover bulletMenu bulletMenu bulletMenu bulletMenu bullet One hour
  • Menu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu bulletMenu bulletMenu bullet Two hours
  • Menu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu bulletMenu bullet Four hours
  • Menu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu bullet Eight hours
  • Menu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bullet Sixteen hours

Only Mortwights may learn Shroud-Rending during this era; other Spectres do not as yet suspect its existence, in large part because they ignore the Mortwights.
