When ghoul touch was in effect, the touch of the caster had a chance to paralyze their victim. However, the deadly touch would only affect humans, halflings, dwarves, half-elves, and gnomes. The more powerful the caster, the longer the duration of the paralysis was.
As well as paralyzing the target, the spell would make the target emit a nausea-inducing stench, causing those caught within 10 ft (3.0 m) to have a higher chance to miss their attacks.
