Mythos Source

They first appeared in The Hounds of Tindalos (1931), written by Frank Belknap Long.


If there is a tie between investigators being closest to the Hound, it goes for the one with the lowest Sneak. If there's still a tie, the first player chooses. If there is no investigators on the same board, but on another (e.g. monster is in Dunwich alone, while the only investigators not in other world is in Arkham), the Hound moves through the train station to the closest investigator. As with flying monsters, the Hound goes to the Outskirts if monster limit is reached.
