Ghasthounds are all of the nastiest bits of rats, dogs, bats, moles, and cats wrapped in a grotesque package. Clever and resilient creatures, goblins have long valued them as companions for their ability to thrive in the same conditions that goblins thrive in. Ghasthounds have exceptional hearing, eyesight, and smell to assist them in the dark, dank places they call home, and they possess large front claws used for tunneling in the earth. Because these creatures are small and furtive, goblins have been known to train them to perform stealthy tasks such as tunneling into human camps to steal loot. Preferring to beg for scraps over hunting for food, they are not keen on combat and will usually flee when confronted rather than fight. When cornered, however, ghasthounds can be quite formidable.
