Balhannoth's Lair

In the Shadowfell, balhannoths make their lairs near places inhabited by creatures they hunt.[1]

Lair Actions

When fighting inside its lair, an balhannoth can use lair actions. On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), the aberration takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects; the aberration can’t use the same effect two rounds in a row:

  • Teleport.
  • Vanish
  • Warp Terrain

Regional Effects

A region containing a balhannoth's lair becomes warped by the creature's unnatural presence, which creates one or more of the following effects:

  • Sense Desires.
  • Supernatural Lure.

If the balhannoth dies, these effects end immediately.
