The SendingStone review

The Steam Mephit is a relatively weak creature with a Challenge Rating of only 1/4. It has immunity to fire and poison and condition immunities to being poisoned. Its stats are all relatively low, with AC, CON, and DEX all at 10 or 11. Its only notable attribute is its CHA at 12. Overall, this creature is not particularly impressive and would not pose much of a threat to a group of well-prepared adventurers. However, it could be used as a minor obstacle or nuisance in a larger encounter.

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