ClanBanner kraken

Overview[ | ]


The Clan of the Kraken knows firsthand how dangerous the sea can be. They worship the gigantic Creature, fearing its brutal might, honoring its instinctual knowledge, and using its powers when he deigns to bestow them.

The clan's capacity to thrive is tied to the terrain because of its penalties on non-coastal areas. However, with enough access to shores, kraken benefit from fisheries producing good and stable Food food income, which can easily be sold for Kröwns kröwns and Lore lore. Its unique resource, Wyrd Wyrd, can be scarce at the beginning but will become more abundant as the settlement extends. With high levels of Happiness Happiness thanks to the Seeress Seeress' and its military Knowledges, the Clan of the Kraken will be able to, in the later stages of the game, summon vast armies that can eventually be reinforced by a Valkyrie Valkyrie and deadly Spectral Warrior Spectral Warriors.
