Shadowstaff is an action-adventure game where you play as a wizard tasked with defeating an ancient wizard order, along with his trusty shadowstaff.


Rathman is just a simple wizard at the College of Redeye, until the College is attacked by a group of wizards called the Order of Tal'Vos. He escapes with his trusty shadowstaff, a magic tool every wizard should have. As the Tal'Vos are trying to kill him, he flees to the island of Kell-Thiri.


There are many factions around the world, with different powers. These are the factions you will face.

Order of Tal'vos

They are a cult of wizards who use all sorts of spells against you. They wear black robes and have long hoods. They are in all areas.

Icewind Raiders

The Icewind Raiders were a normal bandit group until their leaders, Vanis Hawkeye, got powers of Cryomancy. He shared his powers among the bandits, creating powerful ice warriors. The bandits use a mix of ice magic and swords against you. They are mainly found in Icewind Peaks.


There are many spells that can be learnt throughout the game out of spellbooks. There are primary spells (R1), secondary spells (R2) and teritary spells (L2).
