The bluish mist forms into the shape of a canine as a purple-fleshed dog suddenly appears from within the fog, its long red tongue lolling out of a viciously fanged mouth beneath two blank, ovoid eyes.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Ethereal Hop (Su)

A gøgelid is able to turn incorporeal for a number of rounds equal to its hit dice as a swift action. After turning incorporeal, a gøgelid cannot use ethereal hop for 1d4+1 rounds. A gøgelid can end an ethereal hop as a free action.

Ethereal Jaws (Su)

When corporeal, a gøgelid’s bite attack gains the ghost touch weapon enchantment.

Undead Scent (Su)

A gøgelid’s otherworldly nose is particularly talented at picking out the scent of other undead creatures. A gøgelid’s scent ability ignores the first 5 ft. of any non-magical barrier to detect the presence of undead creatures.

ECOLOGY

Environment underground
Organization solitary, pair, or pack (3-8)
Treasure double

Gøgelid are typically found with or near dødelig, usually coexisting peacefully and helping the undead halflings find their buried kin. Where the gøgelid originally come from remains unknown and though intelligent and sometimes quite talkative, the animated canines never speak of more than the name of their home dimension. This has never diminished their relationship with dødelig, who happily accept the four-legged creatures into their families. Once part of a home, gøgelid are fiercely territorial of both the building and its inhabitants, but otherwise they are generally quite friendly and curious.

A gøgelid is roughly the size of a very large dog, standing on its hind legs at a height of about 5 ft., and weighs as much as 110 pounds.
