|Sees in the dark?||Yes|
Ghost lord is a type of monster in ADOM. Ghost lords are greatly feared for their melee attack, which should it damage the PC can age them by as much as a few decades — making them especially dangerous to Orcs and Trolls. Such PCs may be advised to take them out using ranged attacks, or just kill them quickly since their attacks don't usually penetrate armor anyway. PCs with short or even medium lifespans are also advised to drink plenty of potions of longevity and stock up on potions of youth to help alleviate this problem.
As incorporeal beings ghost lords can also pass through solid walls, resist Telekinetic Blasts and float over floor traps. Despite their ability to levitate, ghost lords will not try to cross rivers.

There is a hierarchy even among the dead. One of the high positions is held by the ghost lord. A soul damned to wander the world forever, it has accepted its fate after several hundred years. It now commands the freshly undead, the souls of those just fallen. Like a general leading his troops, it sends its followers to wreak havoc on all who come across its path. It emits a wail of sorrow and hatred. Sorrow for its sufferings, hatred for those still living. In other words, you!
