| A truly horrible undead creature, a ghoul is a decayed cadaver, reanimated and accursed with a terrible hunger. It desires nothing but to feed on the flesh of the living, and will fell its victims with its vicious claws or with one of the many diseases it is host to.

Ghouls are one of the nastier threats in the Crypt. Their brutal melee attacks will damage even the most heavily armoured of characters, they tend to appear in packs, they can move at normal speed, and they have over twice the health of a skeletal warrior. Fortunately, they have no defences beyond their tremendous HP and the standard undead immunities.
Tips & Tricks
- Dispel Undead is an option, although it will take 4-5 casts to kill one on average. It may be better to simply use high-level Conjurations, especially if you can line the entire pack up in a hallway and hit several at once. Melee characters have a harder time of things, but can use weapons of holy wrath, choke points, and stair dancing to make the situation a little easier.
