Mutants Year Zero: Dead Fall
Documented by both Chroniclers and Elders alike, Zone Ghouls are truly an oddity of the zone..
Zone-Ghouls are generally shorter than mutants, and they move in large groups. They hide their faces in hoods or masks made of scrap from the Old Age, and often wear scavenged cloaks to protect them against sunlight and acid rains. Their hands and feet are often wrapped in cloth.
These aggressive people live like nomads in the Zone, moving in the shadows and attacking other travelers without warning. They are most active at night. There are many rumors about the Zone-Ghouls – it is said that they flay and eat mutants taken captive.
Very rarely is any cultural individuality recorded from Zone Ghoul tribes, their weapons rarely anything beyond crude scrap instruments.
