Publication history

The chuul first appeared in the third edition Monster Manual (2000), and the 3.5 revised Monster Manual (2003). The creature was further developed in Dragon #330 (April 2005). The uchuulon (slime chuul) appeared in Stormwrack (2005).

The chuul appears in the fourth edition Monster Manual (2008), including the chuul juggernaut.

Description

Chuul are extremely intelligent, using ambush and advanced hunting tactics to bring down prey. They live in sandy environments such as beaches and deserts, and one of their favorite tactics is to burrow underneath those for sneak attacks. They are capable of swimming, but tend to dislike it. Chuuls usually travel in pairs.

Variants

  • Uchuulon - The uchuulon, or "slime chuul" is the result of implanting a chuul with an illithid tadpole. The resulting monstrosity exudes a thick, protective slime.
  • Other publishers

    The chuul appeared in Paizo Publishing's book Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary (2009), on page 46.
