Shadow lord is a monster in ADOM. It is, as the name suggests, a more powerful version of a shadow and thus appears in mid and high-DL areas.

While shadow lords are more powerful than simple shadows, they still pose little danger. They use Strength-draining attacks, but damage output remains rather low to effectively use this ability on the PC. They have no PV and relatively low HP.

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

Monster memory[]

Now members of the dark undead, these shadows were formerly beings of great stature or power, called back to an existence that leaves them craving contact with living beings, whose life force provides their nourishment. These lords amongst shadows are feared even among the undead. Such is their thirst and drive for the essence of the living that nothing is safe if it prevents the shadow lord from draining the life from a living creature.
