The SendingStone review

The Flying Snake is a fascinating creature in Dungeons and Dragons. Its unique ability to fly makes it a formidable foe or ally. While it may seem weak with a challenge rating of 1/8 and only 5 HP, its high DEX and bite attack can catch adventurers off-guard. However, the Flying Snake's low intelligence and unaligned alignment suggest that it is not a malicious creature, but rather acts on instinct.

Overall, the Flying Snake adds an interesting dynamic to any encounter. Its ability to fly can make it a challenging opponent or a useful asset to players. As such, it is a great addition to any DM's arsenal of creatures.

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