The SendingStone review

The Giant Owl is a rather unremarkable creature with average statistics and a low challenge rating. However, it does have the ability to fly and can be useful for scouting or delivering messages. Its neutral alignment and low charisma also make it a somewhat unassuming creature that may not attract unwanted attention. Overall, while certainly not a powerhouse creature, the Giant Owl can have its uses in certain situations.

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