The SendingStone review

The Swarm of Poisonous Snakes is a formidable foe with a Challenge Rating of 2 and immunity to several debilitating conditions. While its AC is not particularly high, its sheer numbers and ability to inflict poison damage can quickly overwhelm unprepared adventurers. However, it is important to note that the swarm is unaligned, meaning it lacks any specific motivation or goal beyond survival and self-preservation. Ultimately, the Swarm of Poisonous Snakes is a dangerous encounter that requires careful planning and strategy to overcome.

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