This pitch black silk cloak is clasped with a brooch of jet and onyx; it seems to unnaturally absorb the light around it and casts no reflection or shadow.
The wearer of a cloak of shadow dancing casts no shadow. Three times per day, the wearer can twirl the garment widdershins three times to cast a broad shadow that envelops a 60 ft. sphere of darkness centered on the cloak. This shadow functions as deeper darkness (CL 10th) and has a duration of 2 hours.
Once per day, a bard wearing a cloak of shadow dancing may use it along with bardic performance (dance) to cast a number of independent dancing shadows (taking the form of her silhouette) equal to her Perform check -10 (minimum 1 dancing shadow). If used in combat these shadows dance around any enemy of the bard (targets chosen by the wearer as a free action) causing the creature to become dazzled. The shadow copies of the bard persist for 1d4 + 2 rounds or until the bard stops performing.
Once per week a cloak of shadow dancing can be removed by the wearer and cast open upon the ground, where the black fabric of the garment becomes the entrance to a cylindrical extradimensional space 5 ft. wide and 10 ft. deep. This extradimensional space persist for 1d4 + 1 hours or until the wearer lifts the cloak of shadow dancing from the ground.
If located within the extradimensional space, the user can choose to close the fabric in upon itself, completely obscuring the cloak of shadow dancing and everything within it from the outside world for the duration of the effect or until the it is opened again. When closed,the extradimensional space contains enough air for 1 Medium-sized creature to breathe for 2 hours. If the user becomes unconscious while within the closed extradimensional space, the space immediately vanishes, pushing all contents back into plane of origin.
