The Ghost is a staple monster in the Gauntlet realms. They are typically weak entities and no less tangible than other monsters.



Ghosts are generated by piles of bones and skulls. They dissipate upon contact with a hero, inflicting their damage and disappearing. Thus, attempting to melee a ghost is completely futile.
