Publication history[edit| edit source]

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.
