Bay (Su)

When a yeth hound howls or barks, all creatures except other evil outsiders within a 300-foot spread must succeed on a DC 12 Will save or become panicked for 2d4 rounds. This is a sonic mind-affecting fear effect.

Whether or not the save is successful, an affected creature is immune to the same hound’s bay for 24 hours.

Sinister Bite (Su)

A yeth hound’s bite is treated as evilaligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

In addition, a good-aligned creature bitten by a yeth hound must make a DC 12 Will save or be shaken for 1 round. If the victim is already suffering from a fear effect (such as the hound’s bay attack), the victim is instead completely overcome with fear and can do nothing but cower for 1 round. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.


Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, or pack (6-11)

Yeth hounds appear to be emaciated, headless canines.

Their slavering jaws hang where a head might otherwise be; suspended in mid-air. These wailing creatures hail from the lower planes and delight in hunting sentient creatures.

A yeth hound stands 4 feet tall at the shoulder and weights 400 pounds (40 bulk).
