Steampunk Krakken by Ted Jauw

Posted on Posted in Contests

The Beast

This is a moment of terror frozen in time. The R.A.F. Narwhal encounters a mechanically armoured Krakken on its way to Cincinnati, intent on finishing what it started many years ago. The outcome of this incident is wholly uncertain as it hasn’t happened yet . . . but will.

Incidents like this are not unknown to the members of Cirque A Circa and the crypto-zoological existence of Freshwater Krakken has long been suspected since the worship of ‘Flying Spaghetti Monsters’ was first reported in 2005.

More surprising, however, is that in the early to mid 20th century, a couple of Greek Americans, newly local to the area, pre-dated the spaghetti worshipers when they managed to tame, train, mechanize, armour, and weaponize the krakken, giving us one possible origin of the “Cincinnati-style Three Way.”
