The SendingStone review

The Mastiff is a creature in Dungeons & Dragons with fairly average stats and a low challenge rating of 1/8. Its low intelligence and unaligned alignment make it a useful minion for a variety of different encounters. Its high Dexterity and passive perception of 13 make it a good scout or guard animal, and its powerful bite attack can deal decent damage in combat. However, its low AC and HP make it vulnerable to attacks and likely to be taken down quickly if focused on by enemies. Overall, the Mastiff is a solid choice for a low-level encounter or as a companion animal for a player character.

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