A kraken dreams of casting its tentacles into the heavens and strangling that which birthed it- and when its dream exceeds its reach, it settles for the occasional passing boat.
~ Cult of the Kraken


The Krakens are an ancient, feared, and ferocious race of monsters that have existed since the beginning of time, where they served as warriors to the gods. After the war of the gods ended, they went to the depths of the ocean where they wished to never be bound by beings ever again and bring terror and ferocity on their own end. Whenever a Kraken attacks, nothing can stop it, warships and galleons vanish, ocean trade and communication is destroyed, and entire villages, towns, and cities are destroyed as a side effect if they desire to go onto land to nest. Some are even virtually gods that are worshiped and have cults and minions on land and sea, a Kraken pleased with its worshipers will becalm the sea and bring with it a plentiful amount of fish to the faithful. However, the devious mind of a Kraken is ancient and destructive, ultimately always bent to the devastation of all things.

  • Ink Cloud: The Kraken dives underwater and expels an ink cloud with a 40ft. radius, which will upon contact heavily poison a target. The Ink Cloud will also blind all other creatures besides the kraken itself and the Ink Cloud will only disperse with a strong enough current or after the Krakens next move.
