The SendingStone review

The Skeleton is a low-level undead creature in Dungeons and Dragons with a Challenge Rating of 1/4. It has a low Charisma score but high Constitution and Dexterity. The Skeleton is immune to exhaustion and being poisoned. It is commonly used as a minion for necromancers or as a basic enemy for low-level adventurers. While it may not be a formidable foe on its own, it can still pose a threat in larger numbers. Overall, the Skeleton is a classic and iconic enemy in the fantasy genre and a staple in tabletop gaming.

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