The SendingStone review

Specter is a Chaotic Evil creature with a Challenge Rating of 1. It has an AC of 12, CHA and CON scores of 11, and is immune to several conditions including charmed, paralyzed, and poisoned. In terms of opinion, it can be said that Specter is a formidable opponent for low-level players, but not so much for experienced ones. Its lack of abilities such as spellcasting or special attacks makes it a straightforward enemy to defeat. Overall, it can be seen as an average creature in terms of difficulty and versatility.

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