“Did we anger the Pain God?” asked Chalk.
“Not that I know of,” answered Koram.
“The Serpent God?”
“I don’t think so.”
“The God of Despair?”
“The Goddess of Mordalay?”
“The twin deities of Vargensi?”
“Oh come on!” shouted Erlan Cless, “ would you just stop! Why are you asking about these gods?”
Chalk leaned forward to whisper to his two companions.
“Don’t look now, but there is a fox sitting over there by the hearth rather smugly. I suspect that it is some sort of agent of the gods whose altars we have pilfered.”
Koram looked, Chalk rolled his eyes.

A frighteningly intelligent creature, the Alopekos Teumesia is a fox created by the gods to spy on and track those that the deities wish to keep an eye on. Good natured, but dedicated to its job, the Alopekos Teumesia can speak in a high-pitched, yipping voice and will do so to surprise or frighten those it encounters along its way or when cornering its quarry. In appearance the Alopekos Teumesia is a normal looking fox with a clever look in its eye. As a dog of the gods the Alopekos Teumesia can communicate with any deity that sends it on a mission and will defend itself, but run off if a concerted effort to kill it is made. As a strange twist of fate, the fox can make itself look like an ordinary dog to anyone except those that it hunts. Those who aren’t being followed by the Alopekos Teumesia must make a save versus spells to see the creature for what it is, which would still be a fox, but this would betray its magical nature.
