Angled Entry (Su) Worm hounds move through the dimensions in ways other creatures cannot comprehend. They may use greater teleport (self only) once per round as a swift action and plane shift (self only) 3/day as a standard action (caster level 10th). A worm hound can use these powers anywhere, but its destination point must be adjacent to a fixed angle or corner in the physical environment, such as a wall, floor, or ceiling (as determined by the GM); temporary angles created by cloth, flesh, or small items are not sufficient. It cannot use these abilities to enter curved architecture or open outdoor environments.
Mutilate (Su) A worm hound's tongues are coated in enzymes that can shape living flesh as if it were clay. Any creature that ends its turn pinned by a worm hound's tongue suffers 2d6+3 Constitution drain as the worm hound rearranges its organs. Any creature the worm hound uses its tongue to coup-de-grace also takes this damage. Creatures without internal organs are immune.
Otherworldly Mind (Ex) Any non-aberration attempting to read the thoughts of a worm hound or communicate with it telepathically takes 5d6 points of nonlethal damage and must make a DC 19 Will save or become confused for 2d4 rounds. This is a mind-affecting effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.
Ripping Gaze (Su) 5d6 slashing damage, 30 feet, Fortitude DC 19 negates. A creature that succeeds on its save is immune to that hound's gaze for 24 hours. Damage caused by a ripping gaze can be defeated by damage reduction, but it bypasses DR/magic and slashing. The save DC is Charisma-based.
