The SendingStone review

The Giant Centipede in Dungeons & Dragons has a low challenge rating of 1/4, but it should not be underestimated. With its natural armor and decent dexterity, it can be difficult to hit. Additionally, its bite can deal some damage and has a chance to inflict poison. However, with only 4 hit points, it can be taken down relatively easily. Overall, while the Giant Centipede may not be a formidable opponent, it is still a decent low-level enemy to throw at players.

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