Unofficial Description: Caterpillar-like creature with a tentacles from the Shadowfell
In the Shadowfell, balhannoths make their lairs near places inhabited by creatures they hunt.
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:
- Warp Terrain
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.
