The SendingStone review

The lion is a formidable creature with an impressive challenge rating of 1 and strong physical attributes including a high Dexterity score and solid hit points. However, with a low Charisma and Intelligence, this beast is lacking in social and problem-solving skills. Additionally, its unaligned alignment leaves it open to unpredictable behavior. In combat, the lion's Bite attack is powerful and accurate, making it a dangerous opponent for adventurers of lower levels. Overall, the lion is a fierce predator and a worthy opponent for any brave adventurer.

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