Publication history
First appearanceMonster Manual II (1983)

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the banderlog is a monstrous humanoid.

Publication history[edit | edit source]

The banderlog first appeared in the first edition Monster Manual II (1983).[1]

The banderlog appeared in the second edition in Monstrous Compendium Volume Two (1989), and in the Monstrous Manual (1993).[2]

Description[edit | edit source]

The Banderlog resembles a fat Baboon with green skin, brown fur (this creates an almost violet look) and a large mouth and lips. It is a mischievous, fun-loving creature which lurks in trees and throws fruits such as mangos and coconuts filled with a nauseatting juice down at passersby. If it is throwing these at an enemy, they cause poisoning and strength damage as well. They are clearly inspired by the Bandar-log monkeys from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.

Banderlogs cannot speak, being animals.

They are neutral in alignment.

Other publishers[edit | edit source]

The banderlog appeared in the Tome of Horrors (2002) from Necromancer Games.[3]
