The SendingStone review

The Ape may seem like a simple and unimpressive creature at first glance, but its strength and agility should not be underestimated. With a high CON and DEX, it can withstand attacks and deliver powerful punches with its Fist attack. It also has a decent AC and HP, making it a decent opponent for lower level players.

However, it lacks intelligence and charisma, meaning it cannot communicate or reason with players, limiting its role in storytelling. And with an unaligned alignment, it can easily be seen as a mindless monster to be defeated rather than a complex character to interact with.

Overall, the Ape serves its purpose as a challenging opponent for lower level players, but its limitations make it less useful in a more nuanced and roleplay-heavy game.

Ape is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Ape Pathfinder edition. Want to use Ape in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
