The Shadow Flight is one of the 11 flights in Flight Rising.

It is led by The Shadowbinder and residents live in the Tangled Wood. The element's eye color is purple. It is the largest flight as of March 18th, 2017.


Shadow Runestone

The shadow dragons of the Tangled Wood are tricksters. They prefer to be capricious and fickle, like the flickering shadows they manipulate. Of all the dragons, shadow dragons are the most enthralled by games, and delight most in winning, even if it means underhandedly. Game boards, tokens, and pieces are their favored treasure. The god of the Shadow Flight is the Shadowbinder.


Region Shadow

The Shadow Flight is located in the Tangled Wood. The Wood is bordered by the Earth, Plague, Water, Light, and Nature Flight territories. The land is separated into four parts: Driftwood Drag, Wispwillow Grove, Foxfire Bramble and The Forum of the Obscured Crescent.

Region Image Description
Shadow 0

Driftwood Drag

Hollow, rotted logs line the banks of the river delta, the silty flow impeded further by haphazard dams of wood, bark, and leaf-litter stuck together. The fertile lands and abundance of food to be found in the region attract all manner of local wildlife, and dragons are no exception. Roosts are routinely built using the natural dams, expanding heavily into above-ground draconic habitats.
Shadow 1

Wispwillow Grove

If any part of this darkened land can be called beautiful, it is the grove. All manner of giant glowing fungi dot the terrain, providing the only light that does not fight its way through the murk that hangs above. Among these mushrooms, trickster dragons chase firebugs and faeries, content to capture some for the eerie lanterns that illuminate their hovels and caves.
Shadow 2

Foxfire Bramble

The gnarled, twisting shapes of the Foxfire Bramble are sinister against the moonlight, and provide excellent defense to the clans that have painstakingly dug themselves hearths within. Beneath the crushing, thorny knots are some of the darkest places in the realm, and it is nearly impossible for even nocturnal creatures to see more than a few feet in front of them.
Shadow 3

Forum of the Obscured Crescent

A dirtied, muddied hovel, deliberately piled with debris from all the surrounding areas. It existed before the land was enveloped in shadow, constructed by an ancient civilization who, perhaps aware of its nature as a potent weapon against deception, built an open air temple around the pool. The Shadowbinder now claims the Forum as her fortress, fouling the pool with spoils and junk, rendering it useless as a clairvoyant tool.
