((1. Shadow Realm is more 'dead zone' then anything.
2. By Kioet having coming close to Irvine, Irvine grabing the cartosis staff (thus connecting him to kioet) he pulled Kioet into the realm.
Maybe perhaps magic could work in there cus sleepr powers work there. but theres no force, or ability for any electricity to obtain continuity to run/power a circut
3. personaly im trying to end the conflict quick, cus this can go on FOREVER. (hence reason why i was havin Irvine dodge Kioet so much). Not only that it could get into 'whos got the better stuff and who can beat who, so the longer this lasts the more things are bound to not happen in adverse to getting on with a plot.))
