Ghouls are a starting race in SpliceHack. They have a chance of paralyzing monsters that they attack when unarmed, but are only able to consume corpses that are rotting. As undead, ghouls are affected by turn undead. All zombies and ghouls are generated peaceful to them.

Ghouls become more powerful as they get hungrier. These effects are cumulative.

Hunger Abilities
Satiated As normal
Hungry +4 strength, +4 dexterity
Weak Melee attacks deal double damage.
Fainting +2 strength, +2 dexterity, +2 wisdom, +2 intelligence.

Just like convicts, ghouls can last twice as long while hungry. Additionally, ghouls do not suffer abuse penalties to their abilities due to hunger.
