Low-Light Vision

The monster can see in dim light as though it were bright light, so it ignores the Concealed condition due to dim light.

Scent (Imprecise) 30 feet

Scent involves sensing creatures or objects by smell, and is usually a vague sense. The range is listed in the ability, and it functions only if the creature or object being detected emits an aroma (for instance, incorporeal creatures usually do not exude an aroma).

If a creature emits a heavy aroma or is upwind, the GM can double or even triple the range of scent abilities used to detect that creature, and the GM can reduce the range if a creature is downwind.

Fade Away Reaction

Trigger A creature within 30 feet that the fading fox is aware of either moves toward the fox or targets it with an ability

Requirements The fading fox is in natural surroundings

Effect The fading fox Hides. If its Stealth check result meets or exceeds the triggering creature's Perception DC, the fading fox is Hidden to that creature.

The fading fox can use this reaction even if it is being Observed.

Leaping Pounce One Action

The fading fox either Strides or Leaps up to its Speed and makes a Strike at the end of that movement.

If the fox began this action Hidden, it remains hidden until after this ability's Strike.

Sneak Attack

The fading fox deals an additional 1d6 precision damage to flat-footed creatures.

When the monster Strikes a creature that has the Flat-Footed condition with an agile or finesse melee weapon, an agile or finesse unarmed attack, or a ranged weapon attack, it also deals the listed precision damage. For a ranged attack with a thrown weapon, that weapon must also be an agile or finesse weapon.

Trackless Step

The fading fox always gains the benefits of Cover Tracks in natural surroundings, even while moving at full Speed.

Vanish into the Wilds Two Actions

Requirements The fading fox is in natural surroundings

Effect The fading fox Steps, then Hides, then Sneaks. It can take this Step into natural difficult terrain and can Hide in this way even if it is being Observed.

With fur that shifts between hues of red, dull brown, and silver as it moves, the fading fox vexes any pursuer. It has a knack for escaping traps, leaves no footprints, and seemingly disappears into thin air. Fading foxes have lustrous fur and a robust build that set them apart from their red fox progenitors.

Elusive and shrewd, foxes have gained a reputation as sly tricksters, earning them a place in many folk tales.
