The SendingStone review

Drider is a challenging and formidable opponent in tabletop RPGs due to their high AC and hit points. However, their chaotic evil alignment and abilities may make them unpopular with players who prefer a more moralistic approach to gameplay. Their proficiency in Elvish and Undercommon also adds to their mystique and place in the game world. Ultimately, whether or not to incorporate Drider into a game should come down to the preferences and goals of the players and game master.

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