Notes

The following message is displayed when you defeat a hound:

The hound collapses into a pile of dust in moments.

Defeating a a hound with a tome of binding equipped gives you one instance of the Release the Hounds technique and this message:

The hound collapses into a pile of dust in moments. You call out with ancient words from the tome you carry and gather <the/one> hound's energies.

You trap a spectral echo of the hound within the pages of the tome, feeling exhausted afterward.

If you defeat a hound with both a tome of binding and a Myers sampling kit equipped you will collect samples rather than bind it with the following message:

The hound(s) collapse(s) into (a) pile(s) of dust in moments. You're only able to save one large chunk with the sampler.

If you fight several hounds at once in the same combat, you can only gain one large chunk total.

You try to eat the hound, but just get a mouthful of crystalline dust. It absorbs before you can cough it out, causing a strange prickling all over your skin.

You've gained 5 duration of Bone Spikes (no hunger loss)
