The only creature larger than krakens is the Waugan. This immense titan travels around the entire ocean. At times it can also be found swimming through huge sea caves. It is a solitary creature and has no allies except for an aquarian wizard.

There’s Always a Bigger Fish. This massive monster hunts constantly and needs a great deal of nourishment. It feeds on whales, killer whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, and pretty much anything it wants.

Sizeable Impact. The Waugan is so powerful it can devastate an undersea castle or settlement in minutes. Some people say that it does more damage than an earthquake or tsunami. Entire sahuagin and merfolk colonies have been destroyed by this titan.

Secluded Sea Cave. Legends say that the Waugan inhabits a mammoth sea cave. The creature has looted many of the ships it has sunk and taken the bounty. Therefore, most scholars believe a sizeable treasure hoard must be stowed in its cave.
