The SendingStone review

The Dust Mephit is a Neutral Evil creature with a Challenge Rating of 1/2. It has an AC of 12, 10 CHA and CON, and 14 DEX. Its HP is 17 (5d6) and it has immunity to poison while being immune to being poisoned. The Dust Mephit has an INT of 9 and proves to be an average opponent in battle. This creature is ideal for lower-level encounters, but might not pose much of a threat in higher-level quests. Interestingly, the Dust Mephit can create a cloud of dust, causing blindness to creatures within 5 feet of it, making it a formidable opponent in cramped spaces.

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