The Kraken (Revisited)


A Kraken is a monstrous, otherworldly creature that resembles a colossal cephalopod, akin to a giant squid or octopus. Its body is enormous, with a massive, bulbous head that rests upon a thick, sinuous neck. From this central mass, a cluster of long, writhing tentacles extends, each one ending in a series of powerful, sucker-lined appendages. These tentacles are incredibly flexible and strong, allowing the Kraken to grasp and crush objects or creatures with ease.

The Kraken’s body is typically covered in tough, scaly skin or chitinous plates, providing it with natural armor that makes it impervious to many forms of attack. Its eyes, usually large and malevolent, emit an eerie, bioluminescent glow in the inky blackness of the deep sea. The Kraken’s maw is lined with rows of razor-sharp teeth that can rend ships and prey alike.

Up for a Challenge?

The Kraken presents a formidable high-level encounter, yet resourceful and well-constructed characters can surprisingly expedite the defeat what should be a god-tier Big Bad Evil Guy (BBEG). The subsequent stat blocks for both the ancient and the mythic Kraken significantly elevate the challenge. The ancient Kraken boasts legendary resistance and lair actions to intensify torment for your players, while the mythic variant additionally possesses mythic actions, granting it additional abilities that come into play when the mythic Kraken’s hit points fall below half of its maximum, these mythic action are made in addition to the Mythic Krakens legendary actions. Furthermore, on the last page, you will encounter a Baby Kraken, tailored to provide a stern test for a party of characters ranging from level 5 to 8.

I would love to know if you torment your players with one of these 'unbeatable' monstrosities please feel free to get in touch and let me know how they got on.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
