Creating a Re:Ghoul
Ghouls are apex predators. They have the form of a humanoid but the only thing that satiates their hunger is humanoid flesh, they are also much stronger and faster than the average person, you could even say that they are the natural predators of humanoids, one step above in the food chain. An important topic to keep in mind when creating a ghoul character is their disposition towards their condition: how do they feel about having to eat people? Do they not care? Do they hate it? Do they see themselves as murderers? Do they hate the world and the rest of society for hunting them like animals when they don't have a choice but to eat in order to survive? Are they sadistic maniacs that fit right in the stereotype of a regenerating cannibal monster? And most importantly, how do they acquire food? Do they hunt people? Steal corpses? Maybe they hunt, but only eat criminals. Maybe you have a code of honor. Do they have friends? Do those friends know of your human-eating condition? Were you born a ghoul or turned into one because of an experiment?

As a Ghoul, your diet is comprised of three things, Humanoids, Coffee, and water. Ghouls require 1 medium-sized humanoid per 1d12+5 days, otherwise, they will have to make a Wisdom save DC 12 + number of days without eating. If they fail, they attack the nearest humanoid and attempt to kill and eat them. Ghouls usually wear a mask when hunting in order to keep their identity a secret. When you're eating or hungry, Your sclera(White part of the eye) turns black and your iris turns blood red. If you fail to meet your hunger requirements, for every day you starve you gain a level of exhaustion.
RC Cells are a special type of cells that only ghouls have, they are what differentiate normal humanoids from ghouls. RC cells are specialized in the construction and regeneration of body tissue and are the fuel form your healing and offensive capabilities. Unfortunately, those cells are also the reason you can only eat humanoid flesh, in essence, they are what makes you a ghoul. You have an amount of RC Cells detailed in the table + your constitution modifier. You gain half your level(rounded down) in RC Cells per short rest and regain all during a long rest. Eating a small amount a human flesh regains your proficiency bonus in RC Cells, and eating an entire humanoid would make you gain double your proficiency bonus in RC Cells. If the creature is considered large or greater, you add your proficiency bonus again for each size difference. Ghouls are known to be viciously fast predators, during combat, you can use an action to feed off the corpse of a dead humanoid, you are considered to have consumed a small amount of flesh.
At lvl 1 Ghouls have a natural ability to regenerate, some being able to do it better than others. By using a bonus action, you can spend 1 RC Cell to gain a number of hit points equal to the amount listed per Kagune+ your constitution modifier, and if you spend 2 RC Cells, you double your constitution modifier added to the hit points gained. You cannot use this feature while unconscious.
While you are wearing your mask, any divination spell, or effect that attempts to identify you will automatically fail.
If a creature other than you, the wearer, attempts to physically remove the mask from your face, that creature must succeed on a DC 22 Strength check to do so.
At lvl 2 Ghouls, ghouls become proficient in unarmed combat, being physically superior to other humanoids in every way. Your unarmed strikes can deal bludgeoning damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier. If you strike with two free hands, the d6 becomes a d8. When you successfully start a grapple, you can deal 1d4 bludgeoning damage to the grappled creature. Until the grapple ends, you can also deal this damage to the creature whenever you hit it with a melee attack.
At lvl 2 your above average RC Cell count manifests into added deadly limbs, granting you a magical natural weapon. You have the choice between Rinkaku, Koukaku, Bikaku, and the Ukaku. You now are constantly under the effect of the jump spell. When your kagune is out your eyes also sclera and iris also turn black and red respectively. If you fail to meet the RC Cell requirements to use your Kagune, It retracts back into your body until you can pay for the requirements. if your Kagune reaches 0 hitpoints, it retracts into your body until it can gain hitpoints. Anytime you gain hit points, you can choose to have your Kagune regain them instead. If you regain hitpoints by using your RC Cells, and you choose them to go to your Kagune, your Kagune regains double the amount of hitpoints it would restore. Your Kagune regains all hitpoints after a long rest. Kagunes gain any resistance or immunities you have and are immune to psychic and damage. Kagunes are also resistant to bludgeoning, slashing and piercing damage dealt by nonmagical attacks. All your kagunes are treated as separate entities for purposes of multi target attacks and area of effect spells and event
Some ghouls are born with two different Kagune, granting you two choices in what Kagune your ghoul can use. They can be deployed simultaneously, but you must meet the RC Cell requirements for both per turn, and once you use an attack action with one Kagune, you must only attack with that Kagune. If you have multiple attacks you can only use one Kagune per instance of that attack action( E.x if I can attack twice per attack action, I can use my Rinkaku twice, my Rinkaku and my Ukaku once, or use my Ukaku twice)
Kagunes have their separate hitpoints from you. They have an AC of your AC- 2
Hitpoints equal to 1/4 (round up) your total hitpoints + your level
Hitpoints equal to 3/4 (round up) your total hitpoints + your level
Hitpoints equal to 1/2 (round up) your total hitpoints + your level
Hitpoints equal to 1/2 (round up) your total hitpoints + your level
At lvl 2 your hardened skin provides defense against most types of trauma, granting you an Unarmored defense of 10+ Constitution modifier + Dexterity modifier. You cannot use a shield and gain this benefit.
At lvl 2 you can regain missing or damaged limbs or body parts during a long rest, but you do not gain health during that long rest of you regain a limb. If you want to regain more than one limb, you must spend 5 RC Cells per limb after the first.
Starting at level 3 after regenerating life-threatening wounds you gain a +1 to any stat of your choice for 10 minutes.
Starting at 3rd level, your speed increases by 10 feet while you are not wearing armor or wielding a shield. This bonus increases when you reach a certain amount of levels. At 6th level, your Unarmored Speed speed bonus increases to 15 feet, At 10th level, your Unarmored Speed speed bonus increases to 20 feet, At 14th level, your Unarmored Speed speed bonus increases to 25 feet, At 18th level, your Unarmored Speed speed bonus increases to 30 feet.
Ability Score Increase
When you reach 4th level, and again at 6th, 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature. Instead of gaining an ability score increase, you can choose to add 4 RC Cells to your RC Cell maximum
At the 4th level When you use this ability, as a reaction, you fuse all your kagunes into one giant hand.
The hand has an AC 20 and hit points equal to your hit point maximum. If it drops to 0 hp, it is destroyed and your kagunes are separated. It has a Strength of 26 (+8) and a Dexterity of 10 (+0).
- Clenched Fist.
The hand strikes one creature or object within 5 ft On a successful hit, the target takes 4D10 bludgeoning damage.
- Forceful Hand.
The hand attempts to push a creature within 5 feet of it in a direction you choose. Make a check with the hand's Strength contested by the Strength (Athletics) check of the target. If the target is Medium or smaller, you have an advantage on the check. If you succeed, the hand pushes the target up to 5 feet plus a number of feet equal to five times your strength ability modifier. The hand moves with the target to remain within 5 feet of it.
- Grasping Hand.
The hand attempts to grapple a Huge or smaller creature within 5 feet of it. You use the hand's Strength score to resolve the grapple. If the target is Medium or smaller, you have advantage on the check. While the hand is grappling the target, you can use a bonus action to have the hand crush it. When you do so, the target takes bludgeoning damage equal to 2D10 + the hand's strength ability modifier.
- Interposing Hand.
The hand interposes itself between you and a creature of your choice until you give the hand a different command. The hand moves to stay between you and the target, providing you with half cover against the target. The target can't move through the hand's space if its Strength score is less than or equal to the hand's Strength score. If its Strength score is higher than the hand's Strength score, the target can move toward you through the hand's space, but that space is considered difficult terrain for the target.
At lvl 5 whenever you take the attack action, you can attack twice. If your Kagune has multiple attacks, then you can use all of them per attack. E.x if I have 4 Rinkaku tails, and I have this feature, I can attack 4 times with my Rinkaku, then attack another 4 times as the second part to my attack
At lvl 5 extreme Cannibalism of a Ghoul lead to further mutation of the RC Cells in your body. 2 Rinkaku styled, hard, metallic-like Kagune extend out of your waist and you gain a metalic mask that covers your face. The metal is made purely of RC Cells. You get a +1 to attack and damage rolls with all Kagune while this form is active and a +1 to AC. Whenever you make an attack with your kagune, you can attack with these Kakuja Kagune as a bonus action, each doing 1d10 +strength modifier, using your strength. These Kakuja have hit points equal to 1/2 your total hitpoints + twice your level. Your movement speed increase by +10ft and you gain a climbing speed of your movement speed +20ft (ex if my movement speed is 30 ft, my climbing speed this way is 50 ft). It costs 4 RC cells to activate this form, activating this form is a bonus action.
