The sword clattered to the ground, blood dripping from the beasts mouth. It turned its head to the terrified noble Lady. With her gaurd gone, the creature was free to feed.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Abduct: With a successful bite, a Barghest Snatcher gets a free grapple check. If it succeeds, the victim must make a Will save DC 21, or be teleported to the abyssal plane. A Barghest Snatcher may only do this once per day. The Barghest Snatcher may attempt this as many times per day as needed until it succeeds in abducting a victim. It is rumored that if a Barghest Snatcher kidnaps enough nonevil humanoids, it attains demon status.


A snarling canine beast stares with cold white eyes, its jagged teeth and claws shimmer as it tenses, ready to pounce.

Author's Note: I needed a way to randomly teleport my players around the cosmos tee hee!
