Mordenkainen’s Faithful Hound 5e

Within the designated cast distance, you can see an unoccupied space where you create a Phantom Guardian Dog. The guard dog will stay in place for the duration of the spell until you dissolve it with an action, or until you move 100 feet away from it.

Mordenkainen’s Faithful Hound

  • Level: 4
  • Casting time: 1 Action
  • Range: 30 feet
  • Components: V, S, M
  • Duration: 8 hours

All creatures except you see the guard dog as invisible and cannot cause damage to it. When a small or larger creature enters the guard dog within 30 feet, if the creature cannot speak the password you set when casting, the guard dog will begin barking loudly. Guardian dogs can see invisible creatures, can also observe the etheric plane, and ignore the effects of illusions.

At the beginning of your turn, the guard dog will try to bite a creature that is hostile to you within 5 feet of it. Its attack bonus is equal to your cast key attribute adjustment + your proficiency bonus. If hit, it causes 4d8 points of puncture damage.
