A shadow adept is a master not just of magic, but of its use by means of the secretive Shadow Weave, rather than the weave that  nearly all arcanists use. Only followers of Lord Shadow are privy to the hidden ways by which their Lords’ gift might be used. A shadow adept is more familiar with certain spell types. Enchantment, illusion and necromancy spells become easier for him to resist, and harder for  his foes to resist.
