Title: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on August 29, 2007, 11:01:06 AM
Ibn al Xuffasch, Arab astronomer and hunter of alligators and tigers, has found a new profession.

While taking measurements for the Royal Society of London for the Improvement of Natural Knowledge of the movements of the newly discovered planet Georgium Sidus at the south end of Hawkins Island, Xuffasch spontaneously found himself in a torrid romantic tryst with a beautiful native woman. Her eyes were as dark as a starless night and her skin was the colour of qishr, to quote the celebrated Caribbean poet Ricki Martin. If there was a bodice to rip, it would have been ripped, but this was a different type of Mills & Boon scenario. Telescope firmly in hand, Xuffasch was cast headlong into a romance that needs a bowchickabowwow soundtrack.

Waking on the sand the next day Xuffasch found his new love mysteriously gone and, quite horribly, lurid purple bite marks gouged into his neck.  Xuffasch blames his love's disappearance and his own injuries upon the giant squid who haunt the seaways of Shartak and seeks vengeance with the motto: Architeuthidae mortia. (It has not occurred to him that the native woman might have skipped out before he woke up, and that he might have been suffering from extensive hickeys.)

Those who seek to hunt the kraken of Shartak are welcome from any village, town or shipwreck. The headquarters of the clan is on Hawkins Island, where the southern seas can be readily patrolled. The Kraken Hunters join together for only one purpose and once that purpose is fulfilled, they go about their separate lives.

Sightings of the giant squid should be posted here on this thread, so that the Kraken Hunters can group up and slay their dedicated foe.

The clan is not quite officially set up yet as Xuffasch needs a few more XPs to get there, but it will be shortly.

Tell me one thing, Giant Squid Old One friend of mine...

Why are giant squids in fantasy sometimes called Watchers?
I know the LOTR one definately is, I think a couple more are, and Verbal Deception (Pirate Metal) has a song called The Watcer about a sea-monster.

When your clan is created I'd like to have my character, Dr. Livingstone (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=165), join.
I know he can't fight, I just want to investigate the squids.
However, I would be able to heal you and your men.
I hope there is no problem with that.

Because they are charged with the sacred duty of spying on people having sex on the beach :shock:

Excellent. Sorry for the delay, just need to kill an elephant or two and we'll be there.

Uncyclopedia is a favorite of mine. Back on topic, though..........can squids be tracked?

I don't think so because even when they were on land they left no tracks.

And being in water, one cannot leave tracks, of course.

I'm thinking of patrolling the shallow water/deep water divide. If we find one, we put out the call, with GPS co-ordinates.

You ... can scout for squid.  To a degree.  First, you need a spirit, and one who is played regularly through the day - once they've spotted the squid, they can be used to report on the location.

I like your answer better than the truth.

Talking of locations...where is Hawkins Island  ???

See Dark Ferret's map? Its the wee little speck of an island at the southern tip of the York peninsula. A number of my characters have spent some time there, since its also a good staging point for raids on York. It runs vaguely NE-SW and has never had an animal on it as far as I can determine. But its deep out to sea and so provides good coverage of the southern ocean.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Foo on August 30, 2007, 10:24:24 AM
Fortune has it that I am around York - I hunted a giant squid around that peninsula a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't find it again after bringing it down to 250 HP.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Simon on August 31, 2007, 12:34:16 AM
(not Simon): I couldn't stop to have a go at it, but there was one just south of unity island (about two-thirds of the way across from the west) in the deep water. Maybe when I've restocked I'll head back that way.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Kilshrek on August 31, 2007, 01:24:34 PM
Methinks warriors and soldiers have a clear advantage in squid hunting, unless one happens to be in possession of a heavy sword.. Kilshrek may be interested in taking up Kraken hunting as a hobby, is this acceptable?

There's a squiddie in deep water at the north of the Island.

Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on September 01, 2007, 09:19:52 AM
Damn. Xuffasch just picked a fight to get himself killed and is now back in York to restock on bullets. I think he'll try the one near Unity Island.

Of course. The Kraken hunters are a broad church and do not discriminate against anyone. The idea is to collectvely bring down squid.

Doesn't anyone know if poison darts affect squid?

Ok, I'll go in the direction of Unity Island then. I am quite sure poison darts will do 6 damage to the squid - as they do to all animals.

No squid in sight so far, but I met an explorer.

Quote
Ehden Fuhlander says “Greetings, Fletch. I've seen it two or three times on the other side of the island. I think it just roams around attacking people in the ocean. It killed me 2 of those times. It's got like 1000 hp.” (2007-09-04 04:12)
Ehden Fuhlander says “But, I wonder if maybe 50 adventurers attacked it once... Hmmm, I'd want a piece of that action if that's what you're thinking.” (2007-09-04 04:12)
Ehden Fuhlander says “E-mail me at  if you ever want to form a hunting party. Someone would need to scout it first.” (2007-09-04 04:14)

I wouldn't mind keeping your clan until you have enough XP to take over, but I don't want to actually become the leader.

Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on September 07, 2007, 12:05:02 PM
OOOF, I don't think there is so much of a need for leadership as just simple coordination. Ibn has now made the coast, in too much of a hurry to get XP on the way, and is 64XP off acquiring clan leadership. Hopefully the squid will be nearby.

Sorry to give you a scratch earlier today, but Ibn is out of gold coins.

Ibn is in very deep water, patching himself from shark wounds. No sign of calamari yet.

Well now you can scout without fear of their attacks. Using the in-game map you can get a rogh position for squiddy and then we can get it precisely.

I would be willing to pay you in gold to do this for us.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on September 11, 2007, 11:08:05 AM
No squid at [-70.597,+26.500] or points west.

I can see the logic in that. Make me an offer, a good offer. The 'Contact Roaming Shaman' button is looking very attractive...   :?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

Ibn will chip in 20 GCs. A ghost scout is the best way to do this.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on September 11, 2007, 12:37:12 PM
OK 20 from Daves and 20 from Tom (or whomever) - 40 GC comes to about 350(ish) poison darts - I'm your disembodied scout ;)

With one provision: the Kraken Hunters don't stop at just 1 squid, I want a piece of the squid-hunting action after the first one goes down ;-)


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on September 11, 2007, 12:43:13 PM
We could rotate scout duties. I have no issue with being next, although I'd want 40 GCs too.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on September 11, 2007, 01:07:54 PM
50 APs scouting done in. One lone pirate spotted in deep water just N of the SE section of the island. Didn't have any means of IDing him. It would be useful to have all the profiles of the hunters so that I can report, say, "squid sighted 10 squares NE of Joe Bloggs".

Note that when in spirit form your personal location map is not updated with the squares you fly over. Sneaky or a bug?

Can we possess animals?

EDIT: Also let me know roughly where you are (GPS would be good) so that I'm scouting usefully rather than going over someone's tracks.

I think thats sneaky, because I've tried it a few times as a spirit, going to a settlement that I haven't yet visited in a physical form. When I revived at a shaman I realised I still didn't know how to get there... :(


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Tom Failur on September 11, 2007, 01:45:54 PM
My profile is in my sig. ID 1327

I'm happy to give you 20gc, although I will need to sell some stuff first. I don't carry much cash anymore.

I'm at [-70.584,+26.379] and will be searching just to the East of that in the deep water.

I didn't know that your map isn't updated as a spirit. That will make it trickier. Although navigating without a GPS round the coast isn't too hard. Using the Ubermap it's quite simple to match up the coast line.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on September 12, 2007, 04:47:09 AM
No squid at [-70.620,+26.511] or points south.

The clan is now set up, too.

Dr. Livingstone is now a member of the Kraken Hunters :)

OK hunters, based the coordinates given, here are the approximate current locations in image form:

Ibn Al Xuf

Tom Failur - http://www.itechsc.com/misc/shartak/ubermap/mapposgen.php?cx=-70584&cy=26379

Skull Face
- http://www.itechsc.com/misc/shartak/ubermap/mapposgen.php?cx=-70570&cy=26440

Daily GPS location reports please and I'll update with new posts as the info comes in. My location will always be approximate as I can't read my GPS when dead.

When / where was the last sighting BTW?

Christaian Fletcher is somewhere North of that. We were tipped off that squiddy was in the area.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on September 12, 2007, 01:22:18 PM
I've just sighted this guy on the deep water dropoff N of Unity island - http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=6335 (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=6335)

And this one a little further W - http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=6077 (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=6077) - I had to use XP to buy Possession to make him speak so I could get his profile. 3 APs to make someone speak!!

Is there perhaps a roaming shaman on Unity Island right now?

Anyways, looks like no squid NW of the island around the deep water dropoff. My approx finishing location - http://www.itechsc.com/misc/shartak/ubermap/mapposgen.php?cx=-70570&cy=26440


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Foo on September 12, 2007, 01:38:24 PM
We are pretty sure the critter is somewhere south east of unity island. For the native, I met them a couple of times before, seemed peaceful enough.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

Just finished my circuit with a sweep along down the deep water drop-off S of Unity Island. I'm close to an unidentified outsider, in deep water at the following location:

Question: Does Wailing cause damage to NPCs/animals?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Tom Failur on September 13, 2007, 02:42:37 PM
No wailing does no damage. I did some searching to the NW of my precious position and am now in the deep water somewhere.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on September 14, 2007, 05:36:55 AM
Nothing at [-70.548,+26.486] or points north-west of that. Seems I'm using up my FAKs on shark bites not squid attacks.

70.523,+26.399 !!!!

I found the squid and a native there!!! Come !!!

You fire at the giant squid for 5 damage. It drops to 261 HP.

EDIT: You fire at the giant squid for 5 damage. It drops to 216 HP.

I took out 50 HP and try not to get eaten now.

After unexpected help by Leaky Bocks and Kissing Mantis...

Kissing Mantis says “The spirits of Shartak sent me to help you. Foolish outsiders, attacking a baby squid. When it's mother arrives you will be in real trouble. It is now badly wounded (16 HP) and wil die soon.” (2007-09-15 10:02)

You attack the giant squid for 3 damage. It dies.

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Tom Failur on September 15, 2007, 01:40:34 PM
I didn't even get a hit in on this one.

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Foo on September 15, 2007, 05:26:00 PM
Between we need a period of some days for restocking. It's out of question that I'll help you other guys as good as I can in getting a squid kill, too.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

I finally got to [-70.539,+26.398], south end of unity Island, so 10 north of Tom's sighting.

Damn. Back to the start.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on September 16, 2007, 11:47:44 AM
I'm already stocking up for the next one. I won't be sharkbait next time... hopefully.

Likewise, I say that the squid is our friend.. nay, brother and we should embrace him/she/it (Unless your wearing a schoolgirl's outfit, then you might want to just sit on the beach and wave or something). Who's with me? huh?

Nay I do not, sorry. And why would I help you kill the beast... hmm is it possible that the animal's activity is changing due to man's presence, causing it to consume greater quanities of food, and thus hunting would be benefitial to the island as a whole? I'll have to ask somaut, he seems to know a great deal about the islands ecology. Maybe next hunt I'll consider being your pack mule.

Well, defenceless it ain't.. Thats for sure..

But you must understand, those who would interfere with the hunt become fair game themselves, the list of things to hunt merely expanding to accommodate the circumstances.. While out squid hunting one may turn Wicksick, or something like that.. I think it has something to do with a giant squid and suction cups the size of large coconuts.. speaking of which there are none on this nice tropical island..

Fine, and likewise if circmstances change I may be forced to adopt a more liberal policy in the application of my FAKs, the list of things to heal merly expanding to accomodate the circumstances.

It's out in deep water though... map link (http://www.itechsc.com/misc/shartak/ubermap/mapposgen.php?cx=-70597&cy=26393)

Edit: "You attack the giant squid for 3 damage. It drops to 270 HP.
A giant squid attacks you for 5 damage."

The one in the north is down to 185HP and Roger (who by accident become part of the hunting party thanks to Zakano) is currently in Derby buying FAKs. I'll be back tomorrow.

We need an official Kraken Hunters roster so that we can identify friendlies. After the killing of Tom and Leaky last night (particularly galling as I saved Tom from death's door when I arrived) anyone in the area of the hunt and not on the roster will be considered as a hunt saboteur and dealt with accordingly  ;-)

Daves, can you make the clan have a 'View Membership' option? I'll take on the security role seeing as I had the most recent kill. We should also consider using IRC to post HP values for the hunters to avoid making ourselves easy targets.

Damn. LOL. Ibn is now just outside of Derby. Another battle missed. Should l make tracks for Unity Island or is another likely to pop up  on the west coast?

Considering how long it took Skull Face to make it to the battle from Dalpok (24 hours and 2000 XP cost for the extra AP) I think we should consider splitting our forces / patrols up into separate coverage for the E and W of the island. Although the next hunt will probably take place in the extreme N or S, halfway between the E and W coasts  ::)

'One Eyed Willy attacks you for 3 damage. You die.'

Right at unity, in the water so angry. I'm so sick of meaningless murder, at least say something, I like my deaths to have some sort of meaning. Can we add him to the list of KOS for squid hunts?

Where are you? I'm right nearby but totaly lost.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Pike on October 13, 2007, 04:26:05 AM
Sorry man. I have him on the run for sure. I have just enough ap to keep one step in front before he attacks, and the sharks are not giving me any guff, thank the shaman. My advise for anyone who wants a piece, hold off as long as you can, I'm pretty sure I can get him close enough to shore to make it nowhere near as bloody or ap wasting as it should be. Leave it to me. Slow and steady. Get to the Durham side beach, this might actually work.

Well, it seems to vanished. I got it to the shore and now it is gone. Just like that. What the heck hell?

Maybe it became smart enough to realise that as an aquatic, water breathing animal it has the option of diving and swiming away. Either that or they've evolved (see, spontaneus evolution, I swear this island is full of uranium) the ability to teleport and it's only a matter of time before they rise up and scour the island clean. I told you mercilesly hunting down a species like the squid was a bad idea.

In light of this recent develop I think I may have changed my stance on the healing of the squids, I'm in the mood for calamari.

Now can someone give me coordinates?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Cmdr Jameson on October 14, 2007, 05:18:14 AM
Well, I found it just off the beach north of Durham and have since stuffed myself with calamari. Yum!  ;D

Hey hunters.  I don't have gps coords, but you can find a giant squid in the deep waters NE of York hereabouts:

You attack the giant squid for 2 damage. It dies. ;D

Now which one was that? I am utterly confused.

Either way, Christian stocked up on bullets and got himself a heavy sword on top of it, so Squidville will see a hell of a party  :D

Heya, I just joined this clan. It doesn't look like there is an active squid hunt at the moment no? I'm swimming around trying to find one at present, but is there any co-ordinated spotting effort this clan uses? Should I look in a certain area or just tread water till Squidy finds me?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Pike on November 05, 2007, 07:20:32 PM
Just swim around, in or near the deep water. If one is spotted, it will be noted here, so you may want to check this before you log on with you character so you don't waste ap. I am currently checking the far east coast. Nothing.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Coyote on November 05, 2007, 09:36:15 PM
Do Squid only spawn in deep water? I've been skimming along the edge of the shallow/deep divide to use less AP while moving around, but is that false economy since it means I can only ever see a few deep water squares? Or do they spawn in the shallow water anyway?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on November 06, 2007, 04:42:29 AM
They seem to usually be in deep water, but I haveadopted the same tactic as you.

Someone in the general discussion forum has spotted one near Midway Island. I'm 50 squares away from its last reported location.

Come on Kraken Hunters!

I've sent my alt along to assist - I'm miles away murdering pirate scum by the name of Rozen  ;D

This one has had at least one long-pig snack already - it dishes out 5 HP damage - it's down to 248 HP...

Another one for the Wiki pages. Good job from a 4 man crew. I'm just glad that MadPierre had 40-odd FAKs when he got there otherwise he and Kid Showbusiness might have been squid bait.

EDIT: Clan pages updated with the 2 most recent hunts. We have a few hunters who still haven't bagged themselves a kill  :sherlock:

http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=2574

I also apologize to Ibn when my native killed him a few days ago. If my outsider ever succeeds in killing all roaming shamen, hunting kraken is what I'd like to do.

http://www.shartak.com//profile.cgi?id=8966
Skull Face killed two, but I now see that fully grown and regular squids are different in the stats. I swear both the ones I killed were fully grown....

....game bug?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on November 09, 2007, 11:18:35 AM
I believe that Leaky has 3 squid to his name.

Not a bug BTW, the Hunters have determined that squid come in multiple varieties with only the biggest and baddest being called 'fully grown'. FYI that version had 600 HP and delivered 8 HP damage per attack.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Kilshrek on November 09, 2007, 04:08:20 PM
Yeah, took us a lucky roaming shaman and 1-3 respawns each to take it down..

If a single person took down a fully grown squid, I'd like to shake the hand of that avatar of squideth.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: GuavaMoment on November 10, 2007, 03:10:01 AM
Oh God no, the two of mine were steals. The one near Derby was already dead, and the other one wasn't near anything so I had a couple respawns to get at it;

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

That squid was in shallow water about 20 paces SW of Derby. It's dead thanks to a well-coordinated two-man operation (and the the poor bugger who snuffed it prior to our arrival). Eptavian delivered the coup de grace after we shot and hacked it down to 5 HP.

Tommy Sphincter was treated in the same fashion. After hunting squid for a while it's a trivial task to put down a hunt saboteur  ::)

Attention great hunters! One of my bastard spawn (Giant Squid) sighted at these co-ordinates: [-70.241,+26.355]

That is roughly NorthWest of Midway Island, just within the shallow waters off the main coast. I'm there now and hacking away like a fat kid eats cake. I expect to see you guys soon :)

Edit: I got it down to 206hp as I only had about 20ap left. Someone come kill this bastard before it starts asking for monetary support. Even worse, it may ask for a cuddle :shock:

It would seem the squid has disappeared or been killed by some passer-by :(

But I hope to join you guys on later hunts though :)

Now, from memory, there was I, Mister Fletcher and Lazygun I believe. I'm not 100% sure on Lazygun though. Ziggy Stardust showed up when squid had already disappeared as well.

Tagged and bagged my friend.  I was attacking one around the same area a couple of weeks back two, with two other people.  He was just a Giant Squid back then, he killed all of us, turned into a Fully Grown Giant Squid then we lost him.  Only last night I was in the same area, logged on and BANG he was right on me, but hadnt attacked yet.  I attacked him and he was only on about 48hp, I had like 60+ posion darts, so he was toast........proof? Check out my last kill on my profile: -

http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=9667

Do I get a prize or something?

I am now part of a group of five heading west along the coast line between York and Derby, due south of Wiksik hunting for more.  Two natives, two outsiders, and one pirate, all fully tooled up, and the pirate loaded with FAKs he says, just in case we get shark bites.

Oh BTW fellas 0000FF Beard has done a bit of a study and say hes 99% sure that Parrot Feather Charms decrease shark attacks quite dramatically, as in once every 30 moves as apposed to once every 5 moves. 

If this is true im sure will all agree this would be great news for all us hunters out there. 

Oh and BTW Id like one of my characters to join your group.  Eyes of a Hawk has killed a Fully Grown Giant Squid a week or so ago, and now ive got the taste for it, so I want in.  But how do I get in? Would prefer an invite as its more personal :D

I'd like to add that I found all of mine on normal jungle squares, so you might have the same luck there.
It took some days searching, though.

Also, if any of you notice a difference in shark bites when wearing these charms, please tell me.
If enough people claim it reduces shark bites, I'll update the Wiki and state the charm's effect as a fact.

Bondage Princess Une has engaged a large squid shaped object at -70.534,+26.448. Last move was to the NW. Very close to land at the moment. Down to 182 HP.

If you come please bring pie.

I meant EAST of Derby not West BTW, the squid is East of Derby! At the above co-ords.

Found Pike and Eyes of a Hawk, but no sign of El Squido. Where is the bugger?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Milkchew on December 11, 2007, 08:57:42 AM
His last move was south of the last co-ords I gave, he tracked Eyes of a Hawk, whacked him once or twice, then I moved a couple north expecting him to follow likewise, but he mustave gone south of there. 

Super Ted is now in the area.

Bugger, two of my alts have been cursed for being to close to each other. 

Am still scouting the area, Eyes of a Hawk is running out of FAKS and herbs though, so may have to resort to shallow water searching.  Will post co-ords when I spot the big turd.

I suspect so, I did that and found nothing, and headed SE now.

I lured it to shallow waters. I was taking a lot of damage, so I moved away for a few hours and it disappeared! I managed to find it again at [-70.082,+26.414] and I am keeping it there by making myself its target.
I hope my alt can survive the night. If you see me too low on hp, I would appreciate a heal.

His reign of terror is now over, Eyes of a Hawk killed him at 13:10 to claim his second Fully Grown Giant squid, am now retiring to Wiksik to ammo and FAK up, but will be back along the south coast again soon.  Thanks once again fellow Kraken Hunters.  :)

You attack the giant squid for 3 damage. It drops to 428 HP.  :shock:

Kraken Hunters assemble! Check your PMs for coordinates.

Please don't post coordinates here on the public forum. Use this for HP values, curses against kraken, requests for healing (or a priest) are fine...

BTW the PM has had to be sent twice due to a forum limit of 10 recipients per message. Here are the listed recipients: "Pike", "Kilshrek", "FirstAmongstDaves", "Tom Failur", "Spookey", "Simon", "lama", "Foo", "Cmdr Jameson", "Lassaller", "apm567", "Coyote", "Lady Une", "0000FF Beard"

EIDT: You fire at the giant squid for 5 damage. It drops to 326 HP.

I wasn't sure who of the many many people who were hanging out there was a proper Kraken Hunter, so I took care of it myself:


Water

Here you can see Rozen (65 of 85 HP).
You can see 1 native. You recognise Kid Showbusiness(N).
Also here is the body of a giant squid.

You fire at the giant squid for 5 damage. It dies.

Thanks for the help, I'll make sure to return it!

I assume that they spawn out in the deeps, but many are discovered if/when they come closer to land. Luckily, the squiddies can be 'baited' to come up on the beaches -- and sometimes even a little inland -- so fighting them doesn't always take place in deep waters.

If you're out swimming one day and find one, PM the members of the group with GPS coords. We've had some trouble with folks interfering with our hunts, so keep your public posts free of specific location data :)

Good hunting, and welcome aboard! :squid:

The squid is fairly isolated, and I only saw one other Kraken Hunter on my way here. If you can hurry, there's still a good chance to get in on some calamari.

Besides, I've been using the last of my strength to bait the squiddy towards land and I almost have it on the beach. I'll probably be dead tomorrow, so come on down!

Since I dont use a gps, I'll just post the part of the map with the location of Raktam marked and the squid up at the magenta square. Its currently on shallow water with 160 hitpoints.

Anyone for a sea food pizza? I got the calamari  ;D

"You attack the giant squid for 3 damage. It dies."

Super Ted killed the bugger this morning, foudn him lurking west of where Skull Face was (Litteraly about ten blocks) in the shallow waters, one square off the beach!

Oh and Cpt Kermit is my brother in law, ive told him about this, checking peoples profile before attacking.  I requested he join the hunt, and he was on line at the same time as me, in fact we was on the telephone talking to each other as we moved our charaters, as I said dont attack the native Skull Face he said he already did. 

Sorry about that, will have a word. 

Question, is it ok to have more than one character as a Kraken Hunter? Im thinking of using Super Ted as my North coast hunter and Eyes of a Hawk as my South Coast hunter.

Ditto. 

Eyes of a Hawk is now very close the last known co-ords.  But is fresh out of herbs and faks, so can only swim in shallow waters for personal safety.

How frustrating.

I got it from 110 down to 4. I AP'd out, came back in 20 mintues--and someone had come by and dealt the last blow.

Sigh.

Finding one is the hardest part, and when you do you either havnt got enough AP or it kills you. 

Anywho, welcome to the club. 

Hunting the last sighting off Durham isnt going well, no sighting as of yet.

I can't remember if you guys are members of the Kraken Hunters, but I wish to remind everyone that whenever squid sightings are posted in public sight, the potential for saboteurs and squid-huggers to undermine the hunt increases. That increases the threat to our members, as they are already risking their lives by hunting the most fearsome creatures on(and around) the island, and having these miscreants wreak havoc on the hunt is definitely not an ideal situation.
That is all,
Thank You.

Short; PMing squid sightings to Kraken Hunters would be much more preferred, with the promise of glory to the slayer of the beast.

Regaining your balance after what would have been a complete miss, you manage a glancing blow.

I'm all the way over at Midway Island. How long do these things usually last, would it be worth it to try and make my way there?

I'm dedicating Hiram Israel Oates to Kraken Hunting now. Also, are these things usually in shallow water or deep water?


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on April 01, 2008, 08:02:51 PM
Usually deep water. They have to be lured into shallow water.

How long do they last? Depends. If they make kills they get stronger rather than weaker. Read the wiki ;)

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Foo on May 15, 2008, 05:49:41 PM
Alright, I included you in the list and posted the last sighting.

EDIT:

You fire at the giant squid with a rifle for 5 damage. It drops to 404 HP.



As promised, I won't kill that one but will do all I can to help get another Kraken Hunter a score.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

We really need to organise into E and W divisions. That's my third hunt in 2 weeks, from N of Raktam to NE of Derby and then all the way over to Rodrigo Island...


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on May 18, 2008, 01:50:09 PM
Eastern and western divisions make a lot of sense, but it should be self-regulating.

Can we plot where they have appeared to see if there is a pattern? Or is it just random propagation?

I've anecdotally noticed they appear to the south of Unity Island and to the north-west of Derby with substantial frequency.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Cheesesteak on May 18, 2008, 02:29:26 PM
I could go with an Eastern division... coincidentally I'm heading NW of Derby right now (I was searching the waters SE and SW of Derby for the past 2 days)

Absolutely self-regulating. I just think we ncan probably do more to find the damn things and to help hunters get blooded. Once of the biggest problems can be finding them in the first place, closely followed by actually getting to them.

I've been tracking locations of official hunts and I have a pretty good idea of where they appear or prefer to hunt ;)


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Kilshrek on May 19, 2008, 02:20:42 AM
I could be a part of the Eastern division, being from Derby is a royal pain in the backside to get to hunts on the west of the island.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Foo on May 19, 2008, 11:52:15 AM
Organization is alright, but mostly it's just the luck of being in the right place at the right time. The next kraken should definetly go to somebody who hasn't killed one yet - maybe we should make the next location public and have a big brawl with kraken healing and maybe producing a fully grown giant squid...

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on May 19, 2008, 10:07:41 PM
You'll get more 'help' if you do it publicly but you might not make the kill. If you want help making the kill, do it privately via PM and some of the Hunters will be along (assuming it's reachable in time).


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Roman Totale on May 20, 2008, 07:40:28 AM
Well I'm just mapping deep water at the moment, so not bothered about getting Mr. Squid myself.

In that case for anyone who is interested he's @ [-70.239,+26.518], which is pretty much directly North of Wiksik.

New Bristol is a respite for Kraken Hunters. It also sells wood to natives. Located at the northern entry to the Durham Peninsula.

The giant squid you speak of has moved 1 square SW to [-70.443,+26.519], and currently has 291 HP left in him.
Wow... my pirate alt went all the way there (even after hearing that it had moved- I think I was planning to search around for it) and found out that those co-ordinates were ONE SQUARE north of the beach.

It has moved :(
I wish it could have moved south. That would have been awesome.... we need land-kraken. And maybe some air-kraken for the mountain. Oh, and a couple freshwater kraken.

Heh, why not just have lake monsters instead of frestwater kraken?

And wyrms/dragons in place of air-kraken? I'm more likely to flee in terror from the sight of a flying squid than a flying reptile with scales harder than granite and more teeth than a shark... Which is why I don't like flying squid.. :P

It is likely that a long time ago kraken did know how to come on to land, but as we killed those suckers quick I suppose they learned or the ones that loved the land obviously never got to spread their genes...

Ibn al Xuffach is on his way, but its a long hike from York, and a dangerous one. He'll be passing close to Wiksik and would appreciate clear passage.

The royal hunt, if its still going, might move north to have a shot.

Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on August 20, 2008, 01:51:50 AM
Ibn got to the shore of the Wiksik lands without incident. He was attacked by a cannibal in deep water. The cannibal died of nasty shark wounds and so Ibn has now passed to the area of the last reported sighting of the kraken. No sign of it, however.

Thanks. We do appreciate those who take the time to tip us off. Just N of Piketown ruins? We were informed of that one a few days back but most of the hunters have been on the other side of the island. AFAIK there's one guy on the way but he's two days off. Stick around if you want to help chop it into calamari, they're usually good for 500+ XP divided between the hunters - over the last 2 days I made 598 XP off the one near Skull Island and I wasn't the only hunter involved.

As to gold, I pay for good tips in-game and I think some of the other guys do too. It's good manners and good business sense. I'll give you a bye should Skull Face cross your path and if you see one of the Kraken Hunters just tell him you're due 10 GC on my account. If Billfred grumbles about making deals with Pwotters I'll up it 15 GC  :-)

400 HP squid don't die easily, they take a lot of work - lots of FAKs and herbs, lots of bullets and darts and sometimes a lot of XP to AP.

I suggest an apology to the hunter(s) in question. And perhaps a non-trivial monetary payment. Would it surprise you to learn that most of the listed hunt saboteurs have idled out?

Also, I find this line in the profile description of a certain Kraken hunter highly amusing:

Wow, so it seems that that giant squid counts as "the weak", or at least compared to Xeron. Dang it, if that's true, then I could have avoided all this if I'd just reached it first and killed it by myself...
Also note, from the same profile (like, the sentence before):
"Tigers, alligators, elephants and giant squid are his preferred prey."
So he kills A: animals weaker than himself, and B: those who prey on the weak. Priceless.  :-D

Skull, I found that quite disappointing using Deadeye to grief Xeron when he sabotaged a hunt involving one of your native alts. All I can say is that it's unfair. Unless that one native alt wasn't your time, work and effort put into helping killing Icesquid... in that case, you shouldn't take Xeron's interruption of the hunt too personally. I certainly am not.

To Xeron: you might want to consider your last two deaths as a warning next time you hit a Kraken with a heavy sword, with two outsiders and a native (who are obviously attacking it and witnessing the ks). Saracen also happens to be in Durham, but he certainly has no intention of griefing Xeron, unless of course it happens again. So don't do it again.

Peace oot.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Skull Face on September 01, 2008, 02:23:13 PM
I suggest that you're missing the point Saracen. Not all bad feeling on the island comes from territorial wars. We have people who like to wander in and kill Kraken Hunters in the middle of a hunt when they are vulnerable. Or we get people like Xeron who come along after days of work and effectively steal the glory. Both are griefing in their own special way.

For me hunting saboteurs is about defending rights, the right to hunt in peace and/or the rights to that trophy that a bunch of people have coordinated on getting for the last X days. I accept there are no such rights really, so you have to fight for those rights. If someone wanders up and says "Hey, you guys need a hand?" we invite them to join in and help, tell them what's happening and so on. It's not an exclusive thing in that sense. Ask any of the novice hunters that we've helped since the Kraken Hunters started for their thoughts on the matter.

It can take weeks or months to get into a good position to make a kill. Hunt saboteurs cause a lot of grief and deserve a measure of the same in return. At hunts I'm often the designated security-person, wandering around explaining to onlookers that interference would be a bad idea. When the opportnity arises I make a point of hunting down and killing hunt saboteurs in between hunts (and sometimes during hunts). It's what I do to stand up for all the Hunters who keep trying and keep getting stiffed by people like Xeron. I have a squid kill or two so I'm not bothered about not getting a score on my sheet.

Xeron wasn't hard to track down seeing as he put himself into the election. I'd made my way back to Durham for the election and with the intent of chopping Xeron should I get the opportunity.

Finally, Xeron's profile used to state that he was opposed to the Kraken Hunters, although he's changed that since he made his mistake. You may not have noted that but I did. Ask him, see if he denies it ;)

EDIT: That native alt was present at the hunt as a consequence of the IRC conversation Saracen. He's not a Kraken Hunter (far from it, he's not really a character at all) and would not have been involved but for your problems with the squid. He was in fact en route to Durham to act as a monitor for the Wicksick contest. Xeron would have got his sooner or later and that would be the case whether or not a character of mine was involved in the hunt. As far as I'm concerned, a measure of justice has been served and Xeron can either move on or he can continue the feud. I'm easy either way.

Saracen also happens to be in Durham, but he certainly has no intention of griefing Xeron, unless of course it happens again. So don't do it again.
I'm somehow doubting that the chances of me winding up in such a situation again are very high. Which is why it sucks that it couldn't have been AlexanderRM who did it...


We have people who like to wander in and kill Kraken Hunters in the middle of a hunt when they are vulnerable. Or we get people like Xeron who come along after days of work and effectively steal the glory. Both are griefing in their own special way.
This brings me back to the reason why I gave up in the debate over PKing... I realized that I could easily have wound up on the other side in a similar debate. And here it's happened... seriously, how is someone coming along and killing everyone any different than... well... someone coming along and killing everyone? It happens to people all over the island, in every profession.
It's just that you're the only ones who evidently refuse to acknowledge that there are some people who kill other players simply because they can't get their heads around the idea that a game can have any point besides killing. Okay, so maybe not everyone who sees a few Natives and a few Outsiders on the same square as a giant squid and kills everyone, Native and Outsider, on the square is doing so simply because they kill everyone they run across, but it certainly could happen. I have to say I just don't buy the idea that anyone but a Kraken Hunter who does anything remotely related to a hunt is clearly there to ruin the fun of the hunters without reason.
And the second one- get your terms straight. "Griefing" is doing something that has no benefit to you with no intention but to cause other players to suffer. Doing something of massive benefit to yourself without regard to the feelings of other players is exactly the same as... how many weeks ago now was it that you said that killing other players (on the other side) is the point of the game? Hypocrite.



Finally, Xeron's profile used to state that he was opposed to the Kraken Hunters, although he's changed that since he made his mistake. You may not have noted that but I did. Ask him, see if he denies it ;)
Ah, I was worried people would make that mistake, but putting "(KRAKEN. NOT these overgrown squid that people refer to by that name)" just... didn't seem right.
First of all: the terms you use there are deceiving. My profile said "feels racial affinity for Kraken", not "I HATE THESE 2#%@$ KRAKEN HUNTERS YOU #####!" as you want people to think.
Second: Giant squid are not Kraken. Giant squid are giant squid. Remember that this character is a member of a race that comes from a game in which Demons fight and eternal war against Devils: the exact name for something carries great importance there, though laymen may confuse some creatures... the difference between a Kraken and a giant squid could quite literally mean the difference between life and death.


Also, I find this line in the profile description of a certain Kraken hunter highly amusing:
"The only people he kills are those who prey on the weak, be they native, outsider or pirate."
Wow, so it seems that that giant squid counts as "the weak", or at least compared to Xeron. Dang it, if that's true, then I could have avoided all this if I'd just reached it first and killed it by myself...

He said "people", not "humans". The assumption is that he means player characters.
Not to mention that, while it did make it specific that he only kills PEOPLE who prey on the weak, he did not specify that they had to prey on weak PEOPLE.
And since I know that you're going to come after me for arguing terminology if I don't point out that YOU were the one who brought up the subject- I am.
And, of course, his profile doesn't say anything about killing people who take trophies that aren't theirs. He specifically says that he ONLY kills people who prey on the weak. The fact that virtually all animals are (far) weaker that a reasonably skilled player already creates a massive enough loophole there, without trying to make on that doesn't even exist.

As an Illithid Xeron presumably has tentacles coming down from his face? So he's a legitimate target for being a squidface. Case closed  ;D
No, actually, despite popular belief, recent evidence suggests that Illithids are actually octopusfaces. Technically, they should be called Quadrupi, since they only have four tentacles, but apart from that, the head of an Illithid actually resembles an octopus rather than a squid.
And also, aren't you being kinda racist there?
Not to mention that the name of your clan is technically "Kraken Hunters", and not "squid hunters"...

Alas, the Portuguese explorer Fernando Magellan was making his trip to the Shipwreck once again to slay some more cutthroat mutineers when suddenly...

Since your last move:
A giant squid attacks you for 5 damage. (2008-09-04 20:05)

Oh mãe, can any one of you fine senhors back me up. Also, I carry 70 First Aid Kits. Fernando Magellan, explorer/pirate slayer working on behalf of the Kingdom of Spain, pleased to meet your acquaintance.

edit: You attack the giant squid with a machete for 3 damage. It drops to 267 HP.

edit 5.9.08:
The squid is at 130~ HP! I am being helped by another giant creature, and it's not a squid. I think it might be British.

The tracking device I laid on the beast is to alert everyone of its presence based on the word of Doctor Shrink. But since there is a strange occurrence at hand that could set a precendent on the island, it is advised that all parties avoid confrontation with the unique species of cephalopod until further notice.

Actually, the coordinates I gave were 1 square below the giant squid.  I didn't know there were ways to track animals based on coordinates, so I just gave the ones I was on.(see the picture)  Sorry if that screws it up.

The squid is at 201 HP at the time of this report, in regards to all citizens in Durham, any amount of help and extra muscle would be appreciated before the clock strikes 8 and Halloween is over. Your reward from this will be better relations with prominent figures on the peninsula. Please report to 14 squares W of my original pinpoint on the map.

I'd like to sidetrack this to a discussion also related to Halloween (and the Kraken Hunters).

So, I managed to find a zombified bear on the mountain and get it down to 4HP, before a certain person came by and said, hey, TWO zombified animals (there was a goat), better kill them before this person claims the kills that are rightfully his.

Now, where this connects to the Kraken Hunters is that this person happens to be a Kraken Hunter.

oqtasian kills the zombified goat with a heavy sword. (2008-11-01 22:30)


The good side is, I can now see things from the Kraken hunters point of view (even though from the looks of things giant squid show up every few days...). The bad side is, I'm now going to make sure that this particular Kraken hunter can see things from MY point of view.
If anyone sees him, could you just pass on a message that if he kills me back, I might just decide to kill him for all the Natives he's killed in revenge and in revenge for the two times Xeron died for kill-stealing?

The beast managed to slay two individuals despite the team being fully prepared. Two memorial graves will be created in their honour.

Anyone taking notes, it requires more than two sacrificial deaths to cause the squid to become fully grown.

Ibn had a look around Rakmogak. Lots of sharks, no squidly. Igoban is near the shore though so its an easy revive.

Incidentally, does wailing affect animals? Can a squid be wailed?

Didn't the squid get the kills AFTER zombification? Perhaps once a creature is zombified, it cannot change status into such states as 'ferocious' or 'fully-grown.' More research may be required in coming Halloweens.

Eh! Jack Spalding here! I'm a shipper and trader by day, but my true passion is hunting God's most fierce creatures. Though I'm currently going to the mountains to hunt bear, goat and find the famous Shargle eggs, I'd be glad to join you all in a Kraken hunt sometime. I'll keep monitoring your corespondences to see if any Kraken show up nearby. Oh... and I'll let you know if I run into one myself.

Fully grown giant squid due south of the far western swamp, down to 96HP. Good hunting.

(Tried choking him to death with my tricorn hat and feathered plume but the bastard got me.)

Oh the hypocrisy. I love the way this guy is a member of the Kraken Hunters. You guys keep a bounty list of kill stealers to kill until they idle out, yet when you steal someone elses' kill and just sit there next to the person you stole it from and get killed for it, you take a Blood Oath of Vengeance to kill them back.  :-D

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

Yeah, most likely the Kraken hunters as a whole have nothing to do with him doing that. However, the fact that he's a member of the Kraken hunters is what makes it so hypocritical.  :P

No it doesn't. It is a completely unrelated fact. In fact, seeing as you killed him for stealing a kill, that would make you the hypocrite. Funny how things work out, isn't it?

"Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave, her friend is in pain.
She rushes to him, you need some help and she's right on her way.
Poised for night, her backpack is stuffed FAK for the fight.
Dont stop your run, you can beat it, you won't be outdone.

(guitar solo)

Help on the way, well, I know only this, I'll be there today.
Dont fly away, cause I have lots of FAK and I want it that way.
I will stay all the way, 'til it's slain and cant move away.
Making it through, you have a team and we're here to help you."

By the way, even after all these years the wiki is still missing the accuracy rate of squids (and dodge rates of all animals :roll:).

You fire at the fully-grown giant squid with a blowpipe for 4 damage. The poison acts quickly, taking another 2HP almost immediately. It dies. You gain 228 XP.

Next time it's someone elses turn. Good work everyone. My very last dart did the job, lucky me as I was out of healing items.

And for the record, the squid hit me 26 out of 59 times I attacked with a melee weapon and recorded it. That suggests a 45% accuracy, but I have a feeling it's a bit higher.

Just join the clan and keep in mind it's all about teamwork. Killing a normal giant squid on your own is very difficult, a fully-grown one is practically impossible. And don't steal kills (ie. do the last few hits without considerably contributing by doing damage and/or healing other hunters first).  :)

So, should I test out giant squids with a dagger upon arriving to make sure it isn't really weak, and if it's very close to dead just stay out and let those who deserve the kill finish it off? Or w/e?




Alex knows all about that last bit.

Actually, I think what I learned from that was mainly don't admit/draw attention to kill stealing, and for goodness's sake don't apologize for it. Oh, and (somewhat separately) be a member of the Kraken Hunters, which is of course why I'm joining.

But that's behind us (and with a different character); I have no intention of stealing anyone's kill.




Join up, head for the wreck.

Eh, given that I'm at literally the other side of the island and close to out of poison darts I don't think I'll be getting into this current hunt.

You have to stay with them as they can move very quickly. IIRC squid can move as much as 48 squares in a single 24 hour period

You need to be prepared if you're going to hunt squid. Attracting them is only one part of the problem:

There is a giant squid engaged in battle with the Cannibals on the very tip of the island shaped like a lower jaw of Skull Island.  The cannibals have been told to lay off hurting any who arrive to help.

Grunk the Pale is currently there, whacking it in the head with a club.  Not too sure how it's going to end though.

Nautilus Pompilius  kills the giant squid with a broken blade of cutlass. (2010-03-05 21:40)

I want to thank you all for one of the best moments in Shartak for me :-) It was awesome.

Nautilus has now achieved the biggest glory amongst his own kin. He faced the legendary Leviathan and killed it all by himself, the 2 humans even came to look and adore the marvellous, gory fight. By accomplishing the seemingly impossible Nautilus has become an immortal hero and climbed to the highest ranks of the Nautilidae society. He would become the king-god and eternal leader of the Shartakian waters, maybe even beyond that. Not to mention that every single Nautila girl will dream about meeting him.



Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: CyAdora on March 05, 2010, 10:20:15 PM
Nautilus Pompilius bumps into you while retreating from the squid backwards. He slowly turns around and keeps staring at you for a while. Nautilus looks rather hurt.

You say “healing services have arrived.”
You say “that was quite a fancy trick bring you and him over to me.”
You say “I am quite impressed. I can't say I have seen that skill used so well with any other Kraken Hunter.”

Matey Cyadora smiles.

Nautilus Pompilius wiggles around cheerfully and splashes the water while you apply the medicine. You try to count his tentacles just out of curiosity but it seems like an impossible task, there are far too many.
Nautilus Pompilius calms down and starts looking at you with certain intensity in his eyes. You notice these creatures don't blink at all. Ever. Nautilus starts swimming around you in circles.
Nautilus Pompilius does a few circles around, then gently licks one of your knees. Unable to taste anything of interest he moves up and pokes your belly button. He swings from side to side as if thinking something.
Nautilus Pompilius suddenly seems to lose any interest in you and resumes the uneven fight with the squid.

Matey Cyadora smiles and watches the Kraken Hunter work his magic.

Nautilus Pompilius receives a fat hit from the squid, you can almost hear his shell crack. Terrified he darts between your legs and hides behind. You start to wonder if this creature is really that experienced...
Nautilus Pompilius slowly peeks at the squid from behind your thigh, cuddling you rather badly.

Matey Cyadora gasps and secures her backpack.
Matey Cyadora applies more aide.

Nautilus Pompilius giggles, bursting a swarm of bubbles. He seem to be enjoying your first aid kits a lot. Or so you think. He floats a bit further and inspects you with unmistakable curiosity.
Nautilus Pompilius examines you from the head to the toes. He seems to be slightly confused. You think that for the first time you might have become more important than a squid in his world. Maybe.
Nautilus Pompilius keeps staring at you for a long time. A really long time. Swiftly dodging an occassional tentacle attack from the squid.
Nautilus Pompilius starts floating slowly towards you, gets behind the back and starts poking at the backpack full of healing supplies. After some ten or twenty tries he gives up.
Nautilus Pompilius looks a bit disappointed. Yes, you are reading it right, this marine creature has some way of expressing emotions. You can't really understand how he does that, something on his face...

Deadeye leaps adroitly from rock to rock and wades along hidden corals. He yells, "You could do with carrying GPS units!"

Deadeye fires a single shot at a retreating tentacle. He laughs and lights a cheroot. "We'll sort this thing out tonight.  I'll shoot it to pieces and you can finish it."

Nautilus Pompilius looks at the hoping human and hops around a bit after receiving a heal. He slowly swims near Deadeye and stars examining his left leg with numerous tentacles. It really cuddles.
Nautilus Pompilius *looks at the hopping human and jumps around a bit after receiving a heal. He slowly swims near Deadeye and stars examining his left leg with numerous tentacles. It really cuddles.
Nautilus Pompilius takes a look at Cyadora, then at Deadeye again. He repeats this several times as if comparing

Matey Cyadora waves hello to Deadeye and watches the mollusc on Kraken action with great interest.

You say “the little guy is quite agile. ”
Nautilus Pompilius seems to be invigorated by another FAK and resumes pounding the squid with great enthusiasm.

Deadeye watches carefully as the tentacles come out of the water and attack the Nautilus. He checks his rifle and takes aim. He grunts, "30 rounds rapid should do some damage."
Deadeye wipes the blood from his face and shouts, "Seventeen hits! It's down to one-thirty-ish! Get stuck in!"

Matey Cyadora lets out a very girly scream.

You say “OH MY GOD IT TOUCHED ME.”

Matey Cyadora swims frantically over to Deadeye and crawls up his back, grabbing his neck and scratching his face with her nails, not on purpose.

You say “it was so slimey, and it was going up my leg.”

Matey Cyadora shakes as she grips firmly onto Deadeye.

You say “I could feel two, long, thick tentacles about to take me.”

Matey Cyadora looks panicked.
Matey Cyadora breaths heavily as she cracks open the neck of a rum bottle with her dagger.
Matey Cyadora dumps the brown liquid into her mouth, splashing it all over her face and torso.
Matey Cyadora looks up with red eyes, slightly tearing and soaked in sweet, strong rum. She looks towards the squid and curses.
Matey Cyadora chucks the broken-necked bottle at the squids top/head/beak whatever that heinous thing is.
Matey Cyadora clutches onto Deadeye, unaware that he is struggling to keep afloat.

Nautilus Pompilius jumps in the water as the scream reaches his hearing organs. He turns around to observe the strange human ritual the 2 strangers are performing. He seems to totally lost what to do next.

You say “KILL IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Nautilus Pompilius floats around overwhelmed by confusion, rubbing his tiny aching ears with a pair of tentacles. He then swims towards the hugging humans and starts slurping the spilled out rum.

Matey Cyadora unintentionally claws at Deadeye's face some more screaming, "KILL IT," over and over into his formally-good ear.

Nautilus Pompilius looks startled by another female scream, he quickly covers the ears and dives deeper into water. The trembling shell reveals it was not one of the most pleasant experiencies for Nautilus.

Nautilus Pompilius kills the giant squid with a cutlass.

Matey Cyadora cheers and screams with joy. Watching the blood spill out into the ocean and surround them all in a sea of deep red.

Nautilus Pompilius sneaks down below the squid and after some careful examination pulls out a piece of cuttlass blade and buries it inside the creature's body.
Nautilus Pompilius pulls out the shrapnel, causing the squid incredible pain. Some terrible convulsions shake its huge tentacles and the giant creature dies, squirting even more blood to the surrounding waters.
Nautilus Pompilius shoots to the surface at the speed of light. He tries jumping around, splashsing bloody water all over the place. Then sinks back and starts spinning around and darting back and forh.
Nautilus Pompilius tries a bunch of geometrical patterns to express his endless joy. Exhausted and dizzy from unusual movements he finally calms down and starts ascending to the surface again.
Nautilus Pompilius sticks out his syphon-mouth and unleashes a war scream. "Mooooooahhhhhhhhahahahahahahhh" It sounds like a mix of cow and elephant voices. You can hear terrified jungle birds fleeing the coast.
Nautilus Pompilius turns to the two humans, you can almost tell his tentacles are forming a huge grin.
Nautilus Pompilius flows towards Cyadora, pulls out something shiny out of his shell pocket and puts in her open palm. He seems very intrigued by her hand shape and starts counting the fingers.
Nautilus Pompilius applies more tentacles with each step 1, 3, 5... He looks a bit confused about the number but proceeds to Deadeye and gives him a similar shiny thing.

Nautilus Pompilius gives you 1 gold coin.

Nautilus Pompilius then proceeds to dance cheerfully around the body of the squid. You have a feeling he won't be ending this personal party soon...

Several people have been spreading rumours about seeing a giant squid in deep waters and some smaller sea creature that was circling around it, as if supervising the Kraken beast, but quite reluctant in attacking it. The approximate location is here (sorry, that smaller beast still probably don't have a GPS unit):

Hey, I'm fairly new to the island and looking to join a low-impact group with minimal drama that doesn't restrict my style of killing too badly. I hide in the water quite a bit and have run across a couple of you. Despite my bloodlust, I can't bare to kill a Hunter; the cause is just too sexy, so I might as well join if you'll have me. I'm inland at the moment, but I'll work on learning swimming and getting a GPS and some herbs and be accessible from time to time.

Thanks.

Squid can move as quickly and as far as tigers or any other predator. Overnight they can easily move 20 squares or more unless they have a target to keep them occupied.

I was tooled up and ready to embark for the wreck. Might have to rethink that and head either W or E of the wreck.

Giant squid, just west-south-west of the delta in shallow water, down to 122HP. Black Jack Pershing and an unidentified native have laid into it, Pershing just having sunk 60 bullets into its fleshy hide mere moments ago. Pershing however is down to 5HP with no FAKs and so will shortly be dead and back in Derby. Someone else will have to finish the monster off. Sorry, no precise co-ords.

You say “I give my flesh to thee, great Kraken, in an effort to help my new, native friends send you back to your ancestors.”
Matey Cyadora feels the thick tentacles wrap around her body and lift her high into the air.
Matey Cyadora screams before she is taken under the surface of the water.... only bubbles emerge.

A fully-grown giant squid attacks you for 8 damage. You die.

You assume spirit form and leave your corpse behind.

You say “bless the maker and these waters. Bless his coming and his 8 dam attacks. May his path lead us into your light. Your light shall set us free. ”

Good luck, noble Kraken Warriors.  It is always an honor to work with you. If I can, I will return with healing supplies. Until then, stay well.

Quote
(2010-04-21 22:09) Deadeye sits down with a splash onto a partly-submerged rock. He takes out his cigar case and hands around fresh cheroots to everyone. His everlasting match flares and he lights up.
(2010-04-21 22:09) Deadeye inhales a large lungful of smoke and holds it for a long moment. He sighs and exhales.
(2010-04-21 22:13) Deadeye chuckles, "This calls for a celebration of some kind. I'm damned if I know what. I've got 5 FAKs, 6 rounds and 1 bottle of berry wine." He uncorks the wine and raises it to the floating mass.
(2010-04-21 22:15) Deadeye takes a healthy slug from his bottle of wine and says, "Drinks are on me next time you make it to Durham. Assuming that Club Palermo is still in business."
(2010-04-21 22:18) Deadeye takes a pouch from his jacket and hefts it such that it clinks. He says, "It's my custom to pay squid spotters who help the Kraken Hunters. Here you go GIR..."
(2010-04-21 22:18) You give 20 gold coins to GIR .
(2010-04-21 22:21) You give a first aid kit to GIR .
(2010-04-21 22:23) You give a first aid kit to Nautilus Pompilius .

(2010-04-21 22:23) You give a first aid kit to FirstAmongstDaves .

Eyes of a Hawk is far far away in Wiksik re-stocking and seething at an un-provoked attack by the outsider known as Man Eating Tiger (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=10262) .  Chimpochento is experimenting with and making vast ammounts of berry wine, and Strength of a Bear is amassing a mound of gold coins plus trying to climb the skill ladder.

If no-one kills him soon then he'll just have to go outside and throw himself repeatedly under a passing elephant.  Or something.    :(
Vercingetorix, Lord of Dalpok!, is happy to assist with that transportation request.

Why?  Did someone kill Durham's captive shaman?   Or did he finally manage to pull off a successful escape?

And if Vercingetorix, Lord of Dalpok! is still willing to help GIR with transportation to his much missed home town of Durham then, yes, please do!  GIR can come and meet you someplace near Wiksik if that would more convenient for you?  If your assistance causes any inconvenience to your good self then i'm sure we can come to some agreement whereby GIR offers some form of compensation for your time and efforts.  He's not rich but he does have a few spare charms and trinkets, that sort of thing.  He really likes shiny things and has a tendency to pick them up wherever he goes. 8)

FirstAmongstDaves and Milkchew - GIR thanks you both for your kind offers of a ride home for him, but, as stated, poisonous soldier (yodas minion) had already arranged for GIRs transport home.

GIR arrived safely back in Durham, and proceeded to make his (rather roundabout) way to where the big squiddley was reported to be (he probably would have arrived there much sooner if he hadn't removed the Guidance chip from inside his head in order to make room for the cupcake).  Unfortunately for GIR and his current stated aim of hitting 50,000HP healed it seems that the healer already on site must have only recently stocked up on FAKs, and she was doing an excellent job of keeping the squidhitters present in perfect health all by herself!  Indeed, Deadeye was so hale and healthy and hearty and strong, that he has dispatched the fearsome squiddlemonster thing already!

Quote from: The Death of A Squidmonster
CyAdora opens a bottle of 'Skin So Soft' and applies it liberally. (2010-04-29 13:35)
CyAdora says “it keeps the bugs away, maybe it will work on giant squids too!” (2010-04-29 13:35)
Deadeye grunts as Cyadora rubs in a lot of antiseptic and administers many opiates. He narrows his eyes and says, "Right, time to get busy. 56 rounds rapid, coming right up." (2010-04-29 13:45)
Deadeye kills the giant squid with a rifle. (2010-04-29 13:45)
Deadeye says “Oops!” (2010-04-29 13:46)
Deadeye says “When I checked last night that thing was hale and hearty! Damn!” (2010-04-29 13:47)
Deadeye shakes his head in amazement. He looks at Cyadora and GIR and raises an eyebrow inquiringly. (2010-04-29 13:47)

Nope. That is not a 'fresh from the box' fully-grown giant squid. Maybe 2 or 3 people have died trying to kill it and it has grown each time it eats someone. Or possibly it has already taken a lot of damage. Or both.

(2010-05-05 17:58) A giant squid attacks you for 5 damage.
(2010-05-05 17:58) You attack the giant squid and miss.
(2010-05-05 17:58) Unlucky or just clumsy? The blade snaps off and you're left holding the handle, which you discard.
(2010-05-05 17:59) Princess Nico throws down the broken machete, and grabs another. She looks around at her friends, and finds new energy to keep going.
(2010-05-05 17:59) You attack the giant squid with a machete for 3 damage. It dies. You gain 153 XP.
(2010-05-05 18:01) You say “The beast is dead! Thank you all for allowing me to join your clan, and join the ranks of Kraken Hunters! Squid meat and rum for everyone!”
(2010-05-05 18:02) You give a bottle of rum to Deadeye .
(2010-05-05 18:02) You give a bottle of rum to GIR .
(2010-05-05 18:02) You give a bottle of rum to CyAdora .
(2010-05-05 18:02) You drink a bottle of beer and feel better.
(2010-05-05 18:03) Princess Nico takes a swig of her rum, and lets out a girly laugh. "Wait till the boys at the club hear about this!"

Thank you everyone!!  I can't wait for the next squid so we can get Poe a giant squid kill too!!

D..do you have to kill a squiddley to get :cake: ?  Only, GIR really, really wants :cake: .  His tiny little mechanical mind with it's attention span to rival that of a learning disabled guppy cannot remember ever having wanted anything as badly as he wants that :cake: ...  But he doesn't think he could bring himself to hurt one of Mister Huggy's friends or relatives... he'd feel... bad.  But, oh my, he really does so very desperately want that :cake: ...

GIR has a couple of friends that would also quite like the :cake: (my :yap: is particularly impressed by the :cake: sharks), but they'd quite like the :squid: Killer Achievement badge to go with it... would it be possible for them to join The Kraken Hunters as temporary members?  I ask because they don't seem to be having much luck in tracking down Giant :squid: by themselves (unlike GIR, who seems to hold a peculiar fascination for :squid: - they seem to follow him around wherever he goes.  :flowers:  GIR has, on occaision, attempted to give them presents and hold conversations with them so perhaps they think he's some kind of stunted deformed mechanical :squid: relative of theirs who should be looked out for and looked after, the way you do with adorable idiots.  Or perhaps it's just the smell of cupcakes in the water... )

Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: FirstAmongstDaves on June 10, 2010, 05:17:28 AM
I was thinking of a new icon, like the Royal Court's pavilion.

I've taken a look at whaling stations online but they all look like sheds with a big slip yard for whale carcasses, and a bit boring. So perhaps a looming fortress, with a harpoon device as its insignia. And for dramatic flair, if it fits, a net securing a dead kraken off to the side.

The Kraken Hunters are the 5th most popular clan, and the most universally appealing. Makes sense that they have their own HQ.

    * A fisherman has reported seeing a giant squid to the north of the first Western Islet (known to some as Rodrigo Island). Naturally, he headed straight back to the safety of the beach and reported the sighting to a Kraken Hunter found in a bar in Durham.

Hello Kraken Hunters, I have found the squid the Fisherman was talking about.  It is located at [-70.652,+26.398], just northwest of Rodrigo's Island.  I will keep it occupied, but I don't know for how long, this sea water is ruining my suit.

It killed me and I'm pretty sure it got CyAdora and Broomhead too. I restocked on herbs and am heading back to look for it. I should be in the water later today.

A lonely swimmer (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=19448) happened upon this beast. Visibly wounded from the earlier clashes, it clung to the deepest waters known to the island, looking for escape.

Quote
(2010-08-07 07:24) You attack the fully-grown giant squid with a machete for 3 damage. It drops to 32 HP.

The swimmer knew what glory came from felling such a monstrosity. He calculated the odds of his survival, took stock of his dwindling supplies, then brashly struck anyway. The battle was fierce, and the swimmer knew that there was no escape. If he didn't kill the beast soon, it would finish him as he slept off his exhaustion. He reached for his trusty dagger.

Quote
(2010-08-07 08:54) You attack the fully-grown giant squid with a dagger for 2 damage. It dies. You gain 228 XP.

Content with his victory, the swimmer now sleeps. He knows he can't rest long, though, as the squid is not the only danger that lurks in the Northeastern waters.

Uggh...that's the one that gave us the slip. I got him in the 30s and accidently fungi-juiced myself to death and spent three days looking for him to no avail. At least a hunter got him.

I have made a foolish mistake of trying to kill one by myself before.

During the "interim" between version 1 and version 2, when no changes were being saved, I killed one by myself. 

I had been on a ludicrous journey to circumnavigate the entire island in the deepest water (which I was fully aware would not be recorded for me), and therefore had just what I needed: a huge cache of herbs.  I may have found it at less than full strength -- now I can't recall.  But it wasn't easy anyway -- I needed nearly all my herbs and quite a few days to do it.  Each time I needed to pause for AP I'd move a square away to draw him after me, then later another one, earning AP while keeping him within sight. 

It was the only significant event for me, other than the halloween, that I recall during that period.  There weren't many people around to call on anyway, I think.

I thank all the benevolent people who helped me in getting the beast. This would not have happened without you.

Here are the heroes of the hunt:

Tioram (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=13621) - spotted and reported a squid. Also gave up his life in tracking the beast.
SillyLilyPily (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=15021) - a brave Wiksik maiden, intercepted the beast and lured it into the shallower waters. Also did a lot of useful machete swinging and inspiring cheering.
Vlad the Sureshot (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=20270) - a courageous passer-by who stopped to enjoy the hunt and help smashing the beast despite having no healing supplies.

4/5 of this kill belongs to them. The same amount of cake as well.

Victor found a monster, far out in deep water at the very east edge of the world:
You attack the fully-grown giant squid with a heavy sword for 5 damage. It dies. You gain 228 XP.

Lots of FAKs (25ish), and enough XP->AP conversion to make me cringe (7K? I lost count), but I finally got my squid badge. I think it was at 208 health when I found it, so thanks to Cy and whomever else got some hits in before I got there; let me know who else tore it up, I owe you a beer. I'm assuming, from size and location (-70.070 by 26.417), that this was the beast Cyadora had indicated in her last map posting.

*sigh* I only wish it were Halloween so I could do it again...

That's what Ahnaom thought after making one full loop around the island and seeing none of them. The one he actually got was spotted in the deepest waters accessible. Them squids are sneaky. Might be that they all pop up in the depths and then slowly drift to the shore.

Man Eating Tiger (http://www.shartak.com/profile.cgi?id=10262) has found his first ever Giant Squid!  :squid: It's in the shallows about midway on the South side of the big island, unfortunately at 224HP it's a bit big for him to be taking down all by himself, much as he'd love to, so here are the co-ordinates for anyone who cares to join him:

[-70.565,+26.404]

Man Eating Tiger asks that if you already have a squid killer badge, then would you mind allowing him this one?  He's really like a squid killer badge of his own, he likes shiny things!


Now at 182HP, an Man Eating Tiger has gone to the beach where he is curled up fast asleep an dreaming, like a big sleepy stripey kitten

A diminished kraken was killed by a very surprised Vercingetorix in deep water off the southern Durham peninsula today. Looks like someone might have got in some damage first. Sorry to anyone who missed out.

What this suggests to me, though, is that at any given stage we have at least three giant squid about. It just so happens three of them have spawned to the west of the island.

at -.048,.402 ( http://www.itechsc.com/misc/shartak/ubermap/mapposgen.php?cx=-70048&cy=26402 )

Don't know how many HP, but perhaps this is the same one mentioned five days ago a bit further to the west?

Unfortunately I don't have many herbs to assist him -- or even know if he wants help, as of yet.  But if anyone's nearby with lots of healing...

I'll update with what he tells me.

Update: Carcass Aurelius has arrived.  Not sure his interest, as yet.
Update 2: Edwin has slain it, with assistance from Carcass Aurelius.

In case anyone's going to try to get leadership, CyAdora was in contact with both guys. Deadeye, who we all know as Skull Face, currently plays Nexus Clash: http://www.nexusclash.com/ (http://www.nexusclash.com/) and has a forum account as Skull Face there. Not sure about Daves, thought he had just gone idle. That's all I know, but maybe it'll help get someone in contact with them, for those of us that avoid facebook like the plaque.

Huh. Is the squid still alive? But we've lost it's location again?

That's what it sounds like. I shouldn't have missed those 2 days... I guess I'll go search for it again. Given how fast it tends to move, I expect it shouldn't be that far away... but if nobody has found it for 2 days, there must be something up.

If the squid is dead, PLEASE tell me, that would be incredibly helpful. There should really be an alert or something whenever someone gains a giant squid kill... I keep having this urge to go around checking profiles, even though that wouldn't help since you can't tell when they were killed.


Edit: well, I made another horrifically impractical circle out into deep water to the East with my day's AP*, it's not out there. I suspect it's either a moderate distance to the north or a pretty short distance to the south. Or dead.


*I think this is mostly due to the fact that my search patterns are being irrationally influenced by the urge to expand my map. I have actually gotten a little chunk done here, though it would probably be better to use a more practical search patten, and come back later with a fully practical mapping patten. Well, these little chunks I map out here and here make mapping the whole island look less and less daunting, so it's helpful mentally.

(Alzado's first kraken kill? All of those hunts he's been on, and that's the first one he personally killed? Heh... I never noticed before now)

Post by: AlexanderRM on November 21, 2011, 02:12:18 AM
Well, congrats. Sad not to have gotten it myself, but I think this might very well have been the first hunt I've been on, so I suppose you deserve it a LOT more than I do. Happy to see you're finally gotten that kill.  :D

And yes, as a group as well, victory is ours! Yet another slimy menace removed from the waters of Shartak.

Keep on the lookout for more kraken... Those who ply their trade in sushi-slaying will often drop everything and do their best to help "virgin" slayers get their badges.

Yes, good job, former virgin. I was pretty much a floating meatshield for most of the hunt, but it was fun.

Any chance that one is still there?

Seriously people, post in the thread when you kill one of 'em... >_> maybe we should add suggestions to this effect on the Wiki or something (something like "it's highly recommended to post in [link to thread] when one kills a [Python/Giant Squid] so that others know to call off the hunt)? That sounds like it might be helpful, actually.

Is that one still alive?

Hum... could some more experienced hunter give me an estimate of how far they tend to move in 4 days? There's 2 different directions to go and I don't have much idea how far to follow one before giving it up, quite annoying.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: Cobalt Manticore on January 30, 2012, 03:41:50 AM
Scorponok guesses it's vital signs are still pulsing, and within one day it had moved 1 SW of his position. What that means for the rest of it's movement pattern is anyone's guess. It's a definite 'Team Beast', stab it with your steely knives, and kill it.


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters
Post by: AlexanderRM on February 01, 2012, 02:24:13 AM
AlexanderRM hasn't found it in a fair distance both directions... looks like it's most likely quite a distance S and W of it's last reported location, unless it's dead or possibly in shallow water (which AlexanderRM will at least glance over tomorrow).


Title: Re: Kraken Hunters

It may have been too many days now to find it now. I don't know the movement rate of these things.

I could honestly do it in myself if I spent the XP on extra AP, but I figured maybe someone here hasn't had a shot at one yet...I've healed myself up so it should stick around at least a few more hours...

[-70.643,+26.333]. You know, I could probably kill this one too with my 38 herbs using AP-XP, but... uh... well, then I wouldn't know what to do next. I guess I'd just pump up my kill count while hoping to find upgraded animals and waiting until Halloween. Well, mostly it just doesn't feel right. It would be awesome to kill a Giant Squid straight from 217 to 0 by myself in 1 day, but it just feels weird. And I might wind up doing that anyway in 2 days, if nobody else arrives and chips in.


Edit: Whee! Found it again at [-70.642,+26.325] after expending a fair bit of my daily AP searching. I ran through my 15 darts pretty quickly before going on to XP -> AP, did that twice before finally, with my very *last* AP...

I guess now all that's left to do for the next 8 months is wander the island killing animals in hopes of stumbling upon an upgraded one, unless Simon ever brings back the Sacred Space (in which case I'll kill Trader Tamdal before going back to that). It's a long haul from here on. I suppose I can still keep track of squid and python sightings in hopes of getting an upgraded one of those.

I ran into one at [-70.172,+26.445], right off the North coast of the Eastern Peninsula and South of Tarak's Split at about 8 or 9 AM server time. I think I had gotten it down to about 173 HP before I got back on land to heal, which was a mistake.

That was about 6 hours ago, and It's long gone now. Unfortunately I don't have swimming, which makes the chances of me finding it again very low. It looked like it was heading East when I attacked it, but it honestly could have gone anywhere after that.

Having looked over a number of profiles, it seems Fully-Grown Giant Squid kills don't register as giant squid kills on the stats page- they only show up as specials. However, they do generate achievements and badges just like giant squid kills should. This is a strange outcome; there are a lot of folks (>3%) on the stat page that show zero giant squid kills, even though they actually have Fully-Grown Giant Squid kills. Perhaps this belongs in the suggestions threads? Thoughts?

Yes. Some, but not all, of the upgraded animal kills will yield the proper badges and achievements, but not the proper kill stats. It would appear that pythons are always specials, and upgraded squid are as well, as far as the stats kills pages go. Upgraded tigers, zombie versions, and whatnot show up just as you'd expect them to. Odd.

Giant Squid east of the Shipwreck, maybe 20 paces, at the edge of the deep water. I keep forgetting that I do actually carry a GPS. Anyway, 439HP at last count.

Giant squid spotted here. At 160 HP and I'm not able to kill it.  If anyone's in the area, it'd be awfully generous of you to lend me a few healing herbs, as I've run out.

I don't need the herbs anymore, and I lost track of the kraken days ago.
