The SendingStone review

Resistance is a basic yet essential spell in Dungeons and Dragons that provides temporary protection against damage. It allows the caster to imbue a creature or object with magical energy that grants it resistance to a particular damage type for up to one minute. Although it is a level 0 spell, Resistance can be beneficial in combat situations by granting teammates a temporary boost against incoming attacks. This spell is commonly used by clerics and druids, and can be cast quickly with only a verbal and material components needed. Overall, Resistance may not be the most thrilling spell in the game, but it serves as an important tool for any player’s spell repertoire.

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