This week’s Wyrd Games preview gives us a peek at a Ghoul in Through the Breach. In Under Quarantine, the upcoming expansion for Through the Breach, it’s all about the Resurrectionists. The Ghoul eats a little differently (cannibalism!), and this “special diet” offers him abilities beyond those seen in your average characters.
This Grim Feast tactical action (the ghoul devours the corpse of a Living or Undead minion of rank z or higher within 1 yard), gives the character the Well Fed Condition- a +1 to physical aspects, to a maximum value of 4 for 1 hour. Once a corpse is devoured, it cannot be turned into an undead character (obviously).
With the Well Fed condition adds traits Unnatural Vigor and Razor-Sharp Teeth. The more corpses eaten in this time span, the Unnatural Vigor allows the ghoul to inherit vitality from the victims – a brutal +1 wound for every 3 steps of this Pursuit that they’ve completed!
Meanwhile all the bone crunching has sharpened teeth to a freakish point, that add +1 damage to all natural attacks that succeed.
What do you think about this “special diet?”
