Shadow troll is a monster in ADOM. It is a somewhat uncommon creature that appears in mid and high-DL areas.

Shadow trolls are able to drain Strength with their attacks. They retain some portion of their original form and recover HP with a somewhat increased rate.

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

Special abilities[]

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 25, PV: 1, Hits: 75, Attacks: 1, Speed: 100

Corpse effects[]

Shadow trolls' corpses decrease Toughness by 1 when eaten, but reduce the number of turns between natural HP recovery by 1, just like living trolls' corpses.

Monster memory[]

Unlike its living brethren, this troll's skin is a sickly greenish-gray color, it has no hair whatsoever, and it smells downright awful. It mumbles as it walks, but it sounds more like vomiting than speech.
