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

Slow 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. They are, as their name suggests, very slow — allowing easy use of missile attacks.

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

Monster memory[]

These undead perceive life with incredible intensity through the slowness of their experience. Thus they have a powerful despising lust for both life and speed, stripping their opponents of both through their draining touch, if they can manage to make contact in spite of their slow speed.
