A successful Ghoul Touch attack allows the caster to paralyze any creature he touches.


Ghoul Touch
When the caster completes this spell, a red glow encompasses his hand. When the wizard makes a successful melee attack against a creature, that creature is punched for 1d2 fist damage (Strength bonuses apply) and must make a Saving Throw vs. Spell or be paralyzed for 5 rounds.

Where to obtain its scrollEdit

Version HistoryEdit

  • Build 2014—touch attacks now do 1d2 (plus Strength) impact damage, meaning that Ghoul Touch no longer will be a damage-less debuff applier.[1]
  • Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition—no longer creates a pseudo-weapon that requires a proficiency to use well. In addition, you get a +4 touch attack THAC0 bonus.[1]
