A typical otherworld dog stands 4 feet high at the shoulder and weighs 100 pounds. Their coats are a mix of pastel and light-colored hues, ranging from blue to lavender to tan across their coats.

Otherworld dogs do not speak, but they do communicate with each other through a series of howls, barks and whimpers.

Otherworld dogs have never been domesticated, tough some have tried. They have the ability to plane shift a will, complicating the process of trying to keep them in one place for very long.

Otherworld dogs are efficient hunters. A favorite pack tactic is to surround prey quietly, then attack with all the hounds, tripping prey with their trip attacks. They do not give their prey a chance to escape.

An outerworld dog's natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotically-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Trip Attack(): An otherworld dog has a trip attack resembling that of a wolf.


Otherworld dogs have a +5 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks.

*They also receive a +8 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent, due to their keen sense of smell.
