"You find yourself in an empty world occupied only by shadows."
– Classic Frisk, wandering into the shadowground.
A recreation of the underground, the shadowground is a black & white world occupied by sentient shadows of monsters who have experienced a 'soulless moment', not naturally hostile but still a threat the shadows try to understand who they really are and where or who they came form.
When a monster experiences even a hint of emptiness, zero remorse or 'soullessness' in an emotional event, that is referred s a 'Soulless Moment'. The undergrounds magic mixed with 'soulless moments' created living shadows, exact replicas of the monster who had the 'soulless moment'. Originally there were only a few shadows that chose to hide in... well shadows, when there was a large influx of 'soulless moments' there was a large influx of shadows, this created a paralleled underground in which the shadows now live.
The shadowground is the world in which the shadows live, the entirety of the shadowground is a glowing white color with simple black outline to represent the objects, e.g. shadowedin's forest is completely white with black outlining the shape of the trees.
The shadows were created through 'soulless moments' with help form the undergrounds magic, the shadows look exactly the same as their classic counterparts. The shadows are pitch black with only their magic eye (or normal eyes) and teeth visible, they are a little more hostile and curious their classic version personality does exit but only in fragments, when fighting a shadow it's a little like saving your friends in undertale when battling Asriel. The shadows are referred to by two names, The [blank] or The [blank] One, e.g. Shadow Sans is known as The Short Skeleton or The Lazy One. Some shadows are stronger than others, strong shadows are strong because their classic-self has a had more 'soulless moments', Flowey, Sans and Chara are the strongest to have 'soulless moments' therefore their shadows are the strongest in the shadowground.
Note: genocide would be a waste of time as you can’t kill shadows with normal weapons (yet Chara would probably find a way)
