The SendingStone review

Word of Recall is an interesting and useful spell that allows clerics to instantly transport themselves and a group of individuals back to a previously designated safe location. While its casting range is limited to just 5 feet, the benefits of being able to quickly and easily relocate a party in times of danger or emergency cannot be overstated. On the downside, its requirement for a 6th level spell slot means that it's not a spell that can be used frequently, and it may be difficult for lower-level parties to easily use it. However, for high-level parties with a designated homebase or safe zone, Word of Recall can be a lifesaver, and it's a great option for strategic retreats or emergency evacuations.

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