Specifically, Lovecraft’s ghouls. I hate to say, but… they just ain’t that scary to me, sorry. Or mind-blastingly evil. Mi-Go? Sure: brains-in-a-can and deep space frightfulness. Deep Ones? No problem, especially since Delta Green: Targets of Opportunity did a revamp. Great Race? Yeah, those SOBs are pretty freaky-deaky when you realize that they’ve got a real problem with personal head space. But… ghouls?
OK. You eat dead people. Hold on, am I dead? No? Well, then, you just keep on with gnawing on that head then, buddy: he’s obviously past caring and it’s nobody I know. I mean, seriously: read “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath” again. You can recruit those guys as a ally race in that one.
They got real nuanced after “Pickman’s Model,” is all I’m saying.
