The SendingStone review

The character sheet for Veteran presents an above-average challenge rating and well-balanced stats for a seasoned soldier. While not particularly exceptional in any one area, the Veteran brings a level of proficiency to combat that inexperienced opponents may struggle to match. This NPC could make for a challenging foe or a useful ally to a party of adventuring heroes. Additionally, their alignment and language choices make them versatile in terms of their potential alliances and interactions within the game world. Overall, the Veteran is a solid addition to any campaign.

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