Most remain by the banks of the <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​archeron_river">​Acheron</​apdx>​ but a handful revisit the mortal world. Their place among mortals is weak and only capable of invisibly observing their loved ones. Anyone with magical or divine powers can see a shade and even talk to them, but the dead are not very communicative. Dying leaves people detached and remote, though the shades talk among themselves - something a few magically-inclined mortals have used as a way of gathering information or sending messages.+<apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​shade">​Shades</​apdx>​ are spirits of the dead buried without coin to pay <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​charon">​Charon</​apdx>​.

 More powerful shades may influence the mortal world, either by appearing as apparitions or by controlling a mortal'​s dreams. These are called phantasms. The rarest and most feared shades are the eidolons, which can possess a living person. These abominations subvert nature and only exist when powerful magic is at work. A god may endow a shade with power so it may fulfil an <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​oath">​oath</​apdx>​ or seek revenge on those who failed to bury them. Alternatively,​ the fates may drive the eidolon to ensure prophecies are fulfilled. More powerful shades may influence the mortal world, either by appearing as apparitions or by controlling a mortal'​s dreams.
