The SendingStone review

The Giant Hyena is a formidable opponent in the world of Dungeons and Dragons. With an AC of 12 and 45 hit points, it can take a decent amount of damage before going down. Its passive perception of 13 makes it difficult to approach unnoticed, and its bite attack does a significant amount of damage with a roll of 1d20 + 5 and 1d6+3. However, its low Charisma and Intelligence scores suggest that it may not be the most intelligent or social creature to encounter. Overall, the Giant Hyena is a solid mid-level challenge for adventurous players looking to test their skills.

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