Description

Variously called "yeth hounds," "black dogs," or "barghests" depending on local tradition, these creatures are well known and feared throughout Terrinoth. A thousand stories are told about them, but they all agree on one thing: when they have the scent of their quarry, they will never stop chasing him until he is dead.
