The SendingStone review
The # Cult Fanatic is a decent mid-level challenge for players, with relatively average stats and abilities, but its main feature is its powerful spellcasting abilities, which can make it a deadly opponent if the players don't take it seriously. Its alignment and armor class suggest that it is more of a support character rather than a frontline combatant, but its spells can still be damaging and disruptive. The Cult Fanatic is also notable for its ability to call upon reinforcements, making it a potentially challenging encounter if the players don't act quickly to eliminate it. Overall, the Cult Fanatic is a solid addition to any cult-themed adventure or campaign, and can provide a good challenge for players at its level.
Cult Fanatic is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Cult Fanatic Pathfinder edition. Want to use Cult Fanatic in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
