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.
*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.
'''Shadowy Cloud:''' Cloud hangs in room and causes anyone in the area to develop [[Damage#Disease|Fleshrot]] (potentially contagious infection).

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 [[RanikMap31a|further into the swamp]].
(Nov 2020) I believe there is a very wide range of possible spawn levels for this creature, or perhaps some sort of bug. Every tenth shadow hound or so seems to be substantially more difficult than the rest. Two of these at once were usually sufficient to drive me from the area in search of an empath. This persisted clean through until I needed a more difficult are to train in.
