 The Shadow Realms is intuition, artistic expression, poetry, and imagination. This is the understanding of the self as not just a great cog in the machine nor the most important piece, but instead the ability to imagine the entire machine and machines beyond it. Above all other beings in the universe only the mortal have the ability to imagine outside of their own experiences. The Shadow Realms is intuition, artistic expression, poetry, and imagination.

 +===== Gateway to Power =====
 +
 +The reason that powerful beings from the Shadow or Outer Realms seek to gather or control mortal souls is because they serve as gateway to their own power in the world. Even the most nihilistic of creatures in the universe understand on a instinctual level that should the [[lore:​mortal plane]] collapse that all would fall into [[lore:The Void]] and be forever lost. These beings are simply incapable of doing such a thing, in fact many oppose the [[creatures:​void]] that enter this existence.

 +As a mortal soul contains a small measure of the power for any such being that being can use their power through them and into this world. The more souls they gather the more power they can exercise on the world. The nature of Free Will means that these mortal souls must act free - they cannot be controlled; although they can be coerced or bound by their own contract. This is how a [[cleric]] is able to call upon the power of their deities or devils. In the same manner this is how a [[lore:​magician]] can summon power from the Shadow Realms.
