Creepy, dangerous, and often very smelly. Ghouls can add a lot to a campaign, but the key to making them memorable is getting their names right, here’s how to do it.
Good Ghoul Names
Good ghoul names should be short and vulgar sounding, in order to reflect the fact that these creatures left their humanity behind a long time ago.
Bruiseseeker was a particularly vicious ghoul clan leader who delighted in tormenting his victims through torture while he held them captive.
Tuskbuster was given this fearsome nickname by the city’s watch on account of his gruesome tusks that he would use to gore his victims to death with before retreating to his hideaway.
Vaq the ghoul led a band of his own kind away from civilization in order to start their own settlement in a place they would not be discriminated against.
Zoldoz was turned into a ghoul while on a hunting expedition with his family, and tragically returned to devour them once the transformation was complete.
Vungrag was the largest ghoul ever sighted, whose immense from led many to speculate that he was not a human in his former life, but some form or half-orgre or troll like creature.
