Greater shadow hound
A feral being of pure shadow essence, this beast vaguely resembles a canine with greatly exaggerated features. Its massive maw bears several tusk-size fangs that hook downward, gleaming with unadulterated malice. Its eyes blaze with an unearthly silver flame, casting a pale glow upon the area and highlighting its sinuous, muscular body. Tendrils of inky black mist trail behind it as it moves, dancing lazily from its nostrils.
Will rarely drop a curved pristine silver fang when killed.
A greater shadow hound whispers its last raspy yelp as its stark silver eyes wink out of existence amidst its cloak of shadows. One of the hound's huge silver fangs snaps off as the beast crashes to the ground.
The entire area is swamp so you will get wading roundtimes while moving - stalking is impossible. A Giant Skeletal Claw sometimes appears and will attempt to grab and crush you. Protection from Evil will protect against the claw.
