The target must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or its hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.

The SendingStone review
The Wraith is a formidable creature in the world of Dungeons & Dragons. With a Challenge Rating of 5, it presents a significant challenge to even experienced players. Its high Constitution and Dexterity scores, coupled with its immunity to a variety of conditions, make it quite difficult to take down. Its alignment as Neutral Evil also adds an extra layer of complexity to encounters with the Wraith, as players may need to consider the creature's motivations and potential for manipulation. Overall, the Wraith is a well-designed enemy that can provide a thrilling and tense gameplay experience for Dungeons & Dragons players.
Wraith is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Wraith Pathfinder edition. Want to use Wraith in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
