“Release the Kraken.”
The wooden ship rose and fell with the cresting of the waves. The roar of the ocean was deafening as the storm raged through the night. Veteran and rookie sailors alike crouched in their bunks, hearts racing in terror, for this was no ordinary maelstrom. Most were hardened men of the sea, and yet, the seeping darkness and sudden, gusting warmth made even the strongest of them shiver in fear. They knew as well as anyone the tales of the sea.
The cry went up from the night watchman without warning.
“All hands to battle stations!”
Feet pounded across the deck as those men who could took their places. Those who could not huddled below decks, hiding, hoping, praying, begging. Screams rent the night as utter annihilation rose up from the black, churning water, recognizable by the hot stink of its breath and the tentacles nearly as thick as the ship itself. There was no option but death, be it by the beast itself or the rage of the unforgiving sea.
Some sailors swore to go down fighting, regardless of the odds. They drew their blades and squared up along the rail, ready to face what may come. The great arms of the kraken crashed down onto the ship, and the battle began.
The kraken is universally understood to be one of the most horrifying sea monsters. Tales of these legendary creatures spread throughout the ancient seafaring world, spreading like wildfire and carrying all of the terror the storyteller could summon. They smashed ships, destroyed lives, and wrecked entire worlds. No one was immune, and few were spared. Nowadays, the kraken more often symbolizes a world of hurt, but when someone roars “release the kraken,” the intent is the same — bring all the pain and devastation one can muster. Kick asses, take names, and revel in the satisfaction utter annihilation can bring.
