In Denizens of the North, it says that Shade Active Powers can never be maintained. However, in this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=171

Andrew says that they CAN be Maintained.

However, none of the Shade Powers have Maintain Metas. Does this mean that a Dweller can treat a Shade Active Power like a Stance - that they can have one maintained at a given time 'for free?'

Wow that's an old thread you're referencing. This thread covered content that was in development during the DotN beta, so the contents of the book trumps what was discussed there.

I can shed some light as to why shade powers cannot be maintained: the game system wants to make sure accounting is minimal, meaning any maintained effects have physical representations (ie runes in play) to remind everyone about an ongoing power/effect. The issue with Shade powers is the binary effect, so if maintained, then the question is which effect is ongoing? First round easy to remember, but a few Sceadugengan powers maintained for a few rounds and ...pandemonium!

Thanks so much for clearing that up. It makes sense. :D
