Banderhobbs were creatures resembling bipedal toads. They were hybrids of shadow and flesh created by magical means.
A banderhobb was birthed by a ritual originally devised by hag, but later any magical creature or mage who knew the ritual could birth a banderhobb.
The banderhobb was not capable of speech, but could understand orders. These creatures were as big as an ogre but as silent as the shadows they were created from.
In their short existence, they sought to complete whatever task the one who birthed it ordered it to do.
There were rumors that in a dark tower in the Shadowfell shadows sometimes reformed and banderhobbs roamed.
