The ghoul’s touch dulls the target’s senses and presence of mind.
Requirement: Ghoul HD 1
Effect: The target receives a –4 penalty to Perception checks, initiative checks and Will saving throws for 10 minutes. A successful Will save negates the effect.
This attack also deals 1d4 points of Wisdom damage. A creature whose Wisdom score is reduced to 0 by this attack falls asleep, and cannot wake up until it regains at least 1 point of Wisdom. A successful saving throw no longer negates the effect, but reduces it to a –2 penalty and negates the Wisdom damage.
Gain and Loss
If the target fails its saving throw against this effect, the ghoul gains a +2 competence bonus to its Wisdom and a +2 bonus to Perception checks, initiative checks and Will saving throws for 10 minutes.
