Starlike silver eyes twinkle amidst a cloak of shadows so dark that the creature before you seems to be made of the essence of night itself. The lithe beast resembles something canine in nature, although it appears more nimble than strong. Slender sabre-like silver fangs protrude from its maw, and tendrils of inky black mist exude from its nostrils as it breathes.


When it is killed it reverts to its natural state of being "a wild marsh hound".

A lesser shadow hound whispers its last raspy yelp as its stark silver eyes wink out of existence amidst its cloak of shadows. Soon the cloak itself rapidly unfurls, leaving nothing but the broken body of a mundane wild marsh hound behind.

The wild marsh hound lies still on the ground, beaten beyond recognition. The proud canine is now but a mere shattered husk of its former glory.

In Depth


  • Claw: a lesser shadow hound rips its vicious scythe-like shadowy claws at you.
  • Bite: a lesser shadow hound leaps in rage, its gleaming silver fangs barred at you.

Special Attacks

Shadowy Cloud: Cloud hangs in room and causes anyone in the area to develop Fleshrot (potentially contagious infection).

>A lesser shadow hound growls low barring its vicious fangs, a looming fog of shadows billowing from its twisted maw.
>The shadowy cloud churns outward, exuding billowing curtain of sickly black mist that drifts outward toward you...
>A thin layer of black mist blankets you, coating your skin with a sticky black grime. A cold sweat breaks upon your forehead as an icy chill races through your veins.
>LOOK: You also see a looming shadowy cloud.
>The shadowy tendrils churning outward from a looming shadowy cloud fall limp to the ground, dispersing in a final skiff of sickly ebon mist.
>HEALTH: Your body is covered in open oozing sores.

The cloud can be rebuffed (potentially only partially) by Protection from Evil

Unknown: A lesser shadow hound tosses its head back and howls a discordant dirge!

>The shadows making up the lesser shadow hound begin to churn and swirl, making it harder to pinpoint its location accurately.

Area Information

The Zaulfung is an ever-changing low water area where you have to wade through every room. Look for a "curving path" to return to Riverhaven or look for a "sickly tree" to climb further into the swamp.
