Shadowplay allows a wraith who has used up all of his actions during a turn to get another one, but at a cost. If the Shadow offers, the wraith can take an additional action, but he loses a point of Pathos and gains a point of Angst. The wraith can't ask for the additional action; the decision as to whether or not it's available is entirely up to the Shadowguide. While the cost of activating this Thorn is deceptively low, a wraith who comes to rely upon it can feed her Shadow's strength very quickly, and also can find herself in dire straits when the extra action she was counting on isn't forthcoming in a crisis.
