Nessian warhounds are coalblack mastiffs the size of draft horses, often fitted with shirts of infernal chainmail. Nessian warhounds resemble hell hounds, except as otherwise noted.
Nessian warhounds do not speak but understand Infernal.
Nessian warhounds are efficient hunters. A favorite pack tactic is to surround prey quietly, then attack with one or two hounds, driving it toward the rest with their fiery breath. If the prey doesn’t run, the pack closes in. Nessian warhounds track fleeing prey relentlessly.
A nessian warhound’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as evil-aligned and lawful-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
