Opportunity to create effective soldier from fat shopkeeper or hopeless drunkard is main forte of zombies. But walking corpses requires constant control which excludes participation in the battle of necromancer itself. Unlike zombies, ghouls able to fight independently. They haven't memoires, nor personality - only all-consuming hunger. Necromancer just guides this hunger in the desired direction and allows desire of ghouls to devour all living things to complete the deal. Reason for which ghouls are not so common as skeletons or zombies is following: while might of regular undead depends only on quality of raw material, speed, agility and rage of ghouls determined by power and skill of necromancer who created them.
