(Lately I've been tinkering with finding a way to present monsters in such a way that would make them compatible with, but not identical to, fifth edition counterparts. This is part of that ongoing experiment.)
(Some notes. It is assumed that monsters are proficient in attacks mentioned in their statblock unless otherwise noted. They also add their proficiency if a check or saving throw pertains to their ideal, bond, or flaw. Diwatas also add their proficiency if a check or saving throw pertains to one of their portfolios. Calling on a diwata's favor generally reduces the character's Utang score by 1 or more, regardless of whether the favor is granted or not.)
It is said that she was once the sea, itself. However, when her daughter Lidagat died of a broken heart, she abandoned the sea and accompanied her to the afterlife. She has since returned, but now others rule the Sea. Even as she now serves death, however, her powers over the Sea have not waned.
Many upstart newly-dead heroes have tried to challenge her in a duel to keep them away from death. During the eternity of her duties, this has amused her to the point that she now loves fighting.
Very few have defeated her in battle.
Magwayen is usually beseeched for the following:
- Seeing in the dark. (Utang na Loob DC 10)
- Speaking with the Dead (Utang na Loob DC 15)
- Walking on Water. (Utang na Loob DC 15)
- Raising the dead (see below)
