Banderhobbs were creatures resembling bipedal toads. They were hybrids of shadow and flesh created by magical means.[1]


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.[1]


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.[1]


In their short existence, they sought to complete whatever task the one who birthed it ordered it to do.[1]


There were rumors that in a dark tower in the Shadowfell shadows sometimes reformed and banderhobbs roamed.[1]
