Corpser, from Ultima VII manual
|First appearance:||Ultima V|
|Last appearance:||Serpent Isle|
No one has ever seen these creatures, apart from the tentacle that suddenly shoots out of the ground to pull the victim under the earth, where it is killed and eaten. The Corpser relies on stealth to sneak to its victim. But once detected, the normal adventurer should have little problem with destroying this abomination.
They can be found in caves and dungeons with soft soil.
Found only in deep, labyrinthine caverns, these hellish, tentacled ghouls drag their screaming victims into subterranean dens. What fearful end awaits the poor captive none can say. Only a burning flame has been known to have any effect on these creatures of the dark.
This creature is a type of ghoul that ensnares its victims with its tentacles in order to drag them off to its lair and presumably kill them in a manner that has never been discovered. Its only known weakness is fire.
A thorough description of this vile ghoul has never been compiled, for no one has ever survived a close encounter with one. However, once one has made its presence known, it can be identified easily by the tentacles it forces up through the ground to grasp its prey. As with the acid slug, fire is the only reported way to slay a corpser.
