Release-The-Kraken

Every month that Patreon funding remains over the $400 mark I sift through my back catalog and bring up a selection of maps that my patrons then vote on as to which will be released under the free commercial-use license. We ended last month at the $500 mark (aka the “Release the OTHER Kraken!” level), so I put the roster up with TWO old maps being re-released this month – so here’s the last commercial release of the month (in three different versions)!

This time it is Behemoth Lookout, originally posted to the blog in April of this year.

Built in a crook in the red channel (which was then partially diverted around the structure to form a moat for the ensuing moathouse), Behemoth Lookout was constantly assailed by black goblins during its later construction and expansion. Of the assaults on the structure, the best known by locals and those garrisoned here was the battle which finally gave the moat house its name. The goblins came boiling down from the hills once again, but this time they were accompanied by the most massive and foul goblin.

This rampaging behemoth was a goblin of incredible girth and size easily able to push around the three hill giants that it commanded into the fray. It managed to smash through the gates and was finally killed in the inner bailey of the moathouse – with it’s own strength partially to blame as it pulled a tower down upon itself.

When the battle was over, a significant amount of repairs was required to fix up the structure and the outermost bailey was finally completed as well. The northern of the two towers by the moat bridge is adorned with massive stone grotesques designed to look like the foul face of the behemoth at the top, with the three faces of the slain giants beneath it looking over the red channel as it passes below them.

There have been no organized goblin assaults upon the structure since its completion, but occasional forays are launched from the Behemoth Lookout into the hills seeking goblin lairs and dens to keep the foul creatures under control, or at least under-populated.
