A yeth hound stands 5 feet
tall at the shoulder and weighs about 400 pounds.

Yeth hounds cannot speak,
but understand Infernal.


Yeth hounds hunt only at
night. They fear the sun and never venture out in daylight, even if their lives
depend on it.

A yeth hound’s natural
weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as evil-aligned for the
purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

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 11 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. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Trip (Ex) A yeth
hound that hits with its bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent (+3 check
modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack
of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the
yeth hound.

Flight (Su) A yeth
hound can cease or resume flight as a free action.

Skills A yeth hound
has a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by Scent.
