Mined From the Back of Krakens

Kraken Island Chitin

Krakens are docile creatures found in Ocean biomes that look like tiny islands with barnacle-like growth called Abyssal barnacles. These growths can be mined with Pickaxes for some Chitin.

Krakens Submerge After a While!

Kraken Submerging

Be wary tho that once you start mining the growths, the Kraken will start to move. It will move slowly at first and finally submerging itself after a while.

We suggest upgrading your Pickaxe so that you can mine faster before the Kraken submerges itself.

    • Soap most likely originated from when people cooked food on a spit and the fat dripped on to the white ash in the fire and when combined with water it made a lather. Adding soap could introduce hygiene factors into the game. They could introduce it similar to how the hunger works, like, the better your hygiene, the more health/stamina you can gain. Making soap could consist of cooking meat over the spit, the fat mixing with ash and then mixing it with water could give you soap.
