The ghoul’s touch robs the target of its remaining years of life.
Requirement: Ghoul HD 15.
Effect: The target suffers 1 point of ability drain to all ability scores. A successful Fortitude saving throw negates this effect. A creature that is brought to 0 points in a mental ability score by this effect falls comatose. A creature that is brought to 0 points in a physical ability score by this effect dies. A single restoration spell removes all the ability drain inflicted by this touch of loss, even if it normally wouldn’t remove ability drain from more ability scores at once.
The target suffers instead 1d4 ability drain to all ability scores. The successful save negates the drain to 5 abilities, while one of the ghoul’s choice still takes full damage.
Gain and Loss
The ghoul gains a +1 circumstance bonus to all ability scores for 1 hour. This bonus, unlike all other touches of loss, stacks with itself.
