ABOUT

These beasts possess the general shape of large dogs. Barrel chests, massive legs, broad neck, and a huge head make these creatures stout as any rock. Their claws are thick and sharp; the fangs, though short, and manifold and bent inwards, designed for rending. But their most prominent features are the horns that ride their skulls. These coiled horns extend the beast’s thick skull, marking the yufelun’s age. The greater beasts have very long horns, lesser beasts have lesser horns.

Disorganized. The yufelun hunt in small packs of one to four; though there is no order to their hunting, nor planned attack where one yufelun takes up one task and another a different task. They hunt until they find a target and if the opportunity is ripe they attack, one at a time or all together.

Spawned by Orcs. The creatures do not breed. The orcs spawn them from sorcerous pits. They are born full-grown and as intelligent as they ever get. They begin hunting immediately. It is very common when encountering any number of rock hounds that an orc habitation is nearby as the creatures rarely travel far from their masters.
