Death dog

A death dog is a new type of canine appearing in SLASH'EM. It is only generated in Gehennom. Despite its name, it lacks any special abilities or resistances.

Strategy

Death dogs do a large amount of damage for a creature with only two hit dice. However, since they only appear in Gehennom, they are unlikely to kill many players. Be sure not to get surrounded, as they do tend to appear in groups.

Chameleons may mimic death dogs - be mindful, for it is one of their more dangerous forms.
