The ghoul looks like some sick parody of mankind perpetrated by a mad god. Standing over six feet tall, its mud-caked skin is pale grey splotched with green. Its torso and limbs are elongated and bone thin. A pair of evil red eyes stare out at you from within its distorted hairless skull, above a grinning mouth lined with rows of jagged teeth.
Do not need a blessed weapon.
Their special attack can either miss or cause normal damage or else give you gangrene. The messaging for a successful gangrene attack is in bold:
A ghoul rakes its sickly green claws at you!
The claw lands a good hit to your left arm, tearing into the tender flesh beneath.
I've had gangrene get infected without a bleeder and also had it stay dormant and disappear on its own. (31 Jul 2019)
