This is the art long thought lost to the fey dealing with the realm of the dead. A few sluagh may yet possess this art and some strictly Unseelie types. It is believed this art came to be because of a pact with Charon long ago but others speak of a terrible pact with Oblivion itself.
* Underworld Eyes
A fairy with this skill can manipulate his vision to perceive the Shadowlands. He may also affect wraiths with chimera on the "enchanted's" person now.
System: With a successful Perception + Kenning roll (difficulty depending on the Shroud) and a point of Glamour a fairy is able to "enchant" himself to the wraith world and assuming he can find an entrance, could conceivably enter it.
** Call of Orpheus
With some manner of bunk (usually musical) a spirit of the dead feels irresistibly drawn to the caster. To draw a specific spirit a relic or fetter of him must be possessed.
System: With a successful Manipulation + Underworld roll (the difficulty determined by subject's Willpower), a changeling may, with a point of Glamour draw a wraith to him. Like with all fairy magics all wraiths will hear it but will forget about afterwards.
*** Door of Hades
The changeling may open a powerful rift into the Shadowlands. She may draw it on the ground, place it on a door or anywhere else she wishes. If successful she can enter it and end up in the corresponding part of the Shadowlands.
System: With a successful Manipulation + Underworld roll (difficulty the level of the Shroud) the Shroud can be lowered for a person, place, thing, or area by 1 for each success acquired.
**** Hades's Forge
A hideous power, it allows a necromancer (as the users of this art are named) to transform wraiths into Glamour, chimera, or just new entire wraithly creatures. While some benignly may use this to bring a wraith into the Dreaming to live out his life in peace, most use this with hideous results.
System: With this skill a Necromancer has full control over a wraith's corpus and the difficulty of it (10 - angst given credence that this power is infernal in origin) allows the enchanter to turn relics into chimera, corpus into pathos or Glamour, and more.
***** Nergul's Mouth
This level of power is the most hideous among a group of hideous spells. With the power of Glamour a fairy can ravage a wraith of all his powers and life experiences, effectively adding all his knowledge to him own at the mere cost of his soul. Some say at this point this power can affect fairy souls as well.
System: This power costs a permanent point of Glamour but for each success (versus their Willpower or Glamour -- angst and banality) they may remove a dot in any skill and add it to their own. The change is permanent and irrevocable. It is unknown if its applicable to disciplines and knowledge of abilities.
****** The Fomori Way
An art developed by the Thallain Samhain after he killed and devoured a fairy who had knowledge of the Changeling way. It allows a reincarnation with total recollection of previous lives but more or less overwhelms and drains the soul of the body it assumes. The soul is effectively possessed as long as it is a changeling.
System: This requires the expenditure of 3 permanent points of Glamour and present must be a soul of a fairy that is sacrificed to the ritual as a host (a troll was already present in Samhain). Then he reincarnates normally but if ever Undone the amnesiac host's personality takes over.
