The SendingStone review

The Jackal is a weak and unaligned creature with low physical attributes and a low challenge rating. Its bite attack is not very effective, and it has no special abilities or skills. However, it has a high passive perception score, indicating its keen senses. Overall, the Jackal is not a formidable foe, but it may be useful in certain situations as a scout or alarm.

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