Chuuls are large aquatic aberrations created by the ancient aboleths for the purpose of collecting sentient creatures, magic items, and other treasures.[1]


Chuuls are large crustacean-like creatures that have heavy pincer claws. Their faces descend into small tentacles that writhe and curl under the mouth. They have a pair of four legs, very arachnid-like, that scurry across the ground.[2]


Chuuls are amphibious, able to breathe on both land and water. They are immune to poison and the poisoned condition.[3] They are able to grapple and poison their prey.[4]

Chuuls can sense the presence of magic within 120 feet of them at will. This trait is not magical, though it functions much like a Detect Magic spell.[1]
