Amphibious: The chuul can breathe air and water.

Sense Magic: The chuul senses magic within 120 feet of it at will. This trait otherwise works like the detect magic spell but isn't itself magical.


Multiattack: The chuul makes two pincer attacks. If the chuul is grappling a creature, the chuul can also use its tentacles once.

Pincer: Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage. The target is grappled (escape DC 14) if it is a Large or smaller creature and the chuul doesn't have two other creatures grappled.

Tentacles: One creature grappled by the chuul must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute. Until this poison ends, the target is paralyzed. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

The SendingStone review

Chuuls are powerful and challenging foes in the world of Dungeons and Dragons. With high AC and HP, they are formidable opponents for players to face. However, they are also chaotically evil, making them difficult to reason with or negotiate with. Their immunities to conditions and poisons make them even tougher to defeat. With a low Charisma and Intelligence score, they are not the most complex or nuanced enemies, but they still provide a fun and exciting challenge for adventurers to overcome. Overall, Chuuls are excellent additions to any campaign looking to add a strong and deadly monster for players to battle against.

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