Winter wolves are larger, smarter, more ferocious variants of worgs with white fur and a deadly breath weapon.

A typical winter wolf is 8 feet long, stands 4-1/2 feet tall at the shoulder, and weighs about 450 pounds. Winter wolves will often ally themselves with frost giants, hill giants, and other large humanoids, serving entire tribes of giants as both scouts and guards.

Variant: Winter Wolf, Dog of War (CR 5)


This massive dog has dark grey fur and blood red saliva and lolling tongues. Its eyes glow with a red light. Dogs of war are animals from beyond our reality, infused with the essence of the shards of the broken implements of war by the deities of battle (it can expel part of this essence with its breath weapon attack). Dogs of war will often ally themselves with fire giants, hobgoblins and other militaristic cultures as scouts, guards, and sometimes mounts.
