The SendingStone review

Ettercap is a monster in Dungeons and Dragons with a challenge rating of 2. It has an AC of 13 and 44 HP. Ettercap is neutral evil in alignment and has a CHA of 8, CON of 13, DEX of 15, and INT of 7. Its passive perception is 13 and it has a roll 0 of 1d20 + 4.

In terms of gameplay, Ettercap can be a challenging opponent for lower-level players due to its decent AC and HP. Its DEX score also gives it some agility in combat. However, it lacks in charisma and intelligence, making it easier to deceive or outmaneuver.

In terms of lore and roleplaying, Ettercaps are spider-like humanoids known for using traps and webs to capture their prey. They are often found in forests or caves and can be encountered as either solitary hunters or part of a larger group. Their neutral evil alignment means they are not necessarily evil for the sake of it, but will act in their own self-interest and have little regard for the well-being of others.

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