Stench (aura, olfactory) 15 feet. A creature entering the aura or starting its turn in the aura must succeed at a DC 14 Fortitude save or become sickened 1 (plus slowed 1 for as long as it’s sickened on a critical failure). While within the aura, affected creatures take a –2 circumstance penalty to saves against disease and to recover from the sickened condition. A creature that succeeds at its save is temporarily immune for 1 minute.

Betray the Pack The hound’s Strikes deal 1d4 additional damage to creatures that were once its owner, companion, fellow pet, family, household, or pack.


Scorned hounds rise from the most devoted dogs. They’re incredibly possessive of their owners, allowing no living beings to approach and refusing to be parted.
