Shadow is a monster in ADOM. They are relatively uncommon monsters, but may appear in low-DL areas.

Shadows do not represent significant danger to the PC. While their attacks may drain the PC's Strength, they lack in damage and have only one attack per combat round.

Shadows are vulnerable to undead slaying melee and missile weapons and receive 1.5x damage from blessed items.

Monster memory[]

Dark as night, cold as ice, quiet as death, this is a shadow cast where no shadow should be. In utter silence it glides in your direction, and you feel the chill radiance of unlife as it reaches out towards your hearrt. A sudden weakness shudders through your frame as the shadow attacks.
