Black wizards are monsters in ADOM. They are able to summon random monsters; which can be especially annoying if they summon quantities of breeders or fellow summoners (such as werewolves), as they can thus start to increase monster numbers exponentially in a level.

They are also capable of cursing the PC and/or their equipment in melee range. They are usually not very tough, however; and can easily be dealt with with missiles, magic or mindcraft.

Monster memory[]

This dark magic-user appears to be a small, thin old human, with an evil scowl and eyes like black stones. His face is contorted and wrinkled, and his very skin crawls with dark energies, show the chaotic origins of his power. A black wizard's magical abilities are gained in trade for the wizard's own soul.
