Maybe, maybe not. TM were introduced as part of plots, in some ways. Shedim too, and while they are not as much active, they did not faded completely, or am I wrong?
.....

Now that is one thing I was really currious about. Do they get lost completely after Dulkezahns Rift being closed? Or they remained, since Astral Gateway power gives Master Shedims option to summon further vanguards of this type into our plane???

Those that were already around continue to exist, but the Astral Gateway power doesn't work for Master Shedim to summon more of them.

Ahh...so no more Astral Gateway to Shedim metaplane? Thats sad  :'( it was my favourite "cinematics" and vilain. Well since team participates on Artifacts campaign, and since they have personal grudge against Shedims since their first run, surviving Unbound they may consider their victory. Good to know. Thx for info

Note that just because the doorways sealed up, doesn't mean they're gone.  They're just a bit more rare.

I understand. There is still a few of them to hunt. In Kongo, perhaps. Or some undead pirates... ;)

Or Ibn Eisa, who is still lurking on the shadows and has been eerily silent.

From a scientific perspective, the Rift was pretty much the primary gate just because of how stable it was. Essentially an unbreakable Quantum Entangled portal. Now all they have go on for keeping up numbers are however they breed(if they do that is), or forcing the creation of less stable gates to bring in others.

I wonder if they do reproduce. Probably in a really grotesque fashion.

The Shedim are easily startled, but will be back in greater numbers.

Actually, my read on it is that with the Rift closed it is presently utterly impossible (without some serious goings on to change circumstances) to get to their home metaplane from Earth at all.

It's a sad day when a classic Star Wars quote goes unnoticed.

I also believe that this is the case.  That said, you can never predict what the future may hold...

There are always exceptions. There's an artifact one of the Season 4 Missions that, when used in the proper way at the proper time, opens a gateway to the Shedim's home plane. It's entirely possible there are other such artifacts in existance.

However, they can;t travel freely anymore, and it will be very rare and unusual if any more show up (if at all).

I suggest that we open another thread for this Shedim topic, which is not really related to Sybil virus. Actually, there would be a lot to say about the things noticed before about ADA and the difference engine. And that folk with a mantis profile photo on his twitter. But my knowledge is pretty limited regarding recent events.
