Special Abilities

Bay (Su) When a mythic yeth hound howls or barks, all creatures except other evil outsiders within a 300-foot spread must succeed on a DC 14 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. Additionally, a mythic yeth hound can expend one use of its mythic power as a free action when it uses its bay attack to make the area radiate fear for 1d4+1 rounds. Any creature in, entering, or passing through the bay’s area of effect during these 1d4+1 rounds is subject to the mythic yeth hound’s bay attack.The save DC is Charisma-based and includes a +2 racial bonus.

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

Sinister Bite (Su) A yeth hound’s bite is treated as evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction, and good-aligned creatures bitten by a yeth hound must succeed on a DC 14 Will save or be shaken for 1 round. If the target is already affected by a fear effect (such as the hound’s bay attack), the victim is instead completely overcome with fear and cowering for 1 round. This is a mind-affecting fear effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Yeth Hound’s Curse (Su) When a mythic yeth hound confirms a critical hit against a good-aligned creature with its bite, the target is is stunned for 1 round and takes a permanent –6 penalty to its Wisdom score (as bestow curse, Will DC 14 negates). Subsequent failed saves do not increase this penalty but can cause repeated stunning. A mythic yeth hound can use this ability after any hit with its bite attack by expending one use of its mythic power as a free action. This is a curse effect. The save DC is Charisma-based and includes a +2 racial bonus.
