There is nothing quite like sailing upon the sea at night. The size of your craft matters little as you realize that nothing mankind has ever made could be considered large out here. The knowledge that things larger than you and your craft are swimming beneath you is another sobering thought. They have tentacles and teeth. You are utterly helpless in the water. Should the frail safety of your craft fail you, you will almost certainly die a most horrible death as you become a meal. All of this is enough to send panic coursing through your veins, and these are just the simple realities of the sea. 

The tales that are dreamt of and told are worse. Much worse. These are the stories that LEVIATHAN is looking for.

Give us the Kraken. Give us giant sharks. Give us undiscovered depths, unexplored islands and all of the horrible things that live there. Give us any monster you can dream of that lives in or around the sea... Then give us the hunters that battle them.

Depends. There will be a Cryptozoology Monster Hunter in 2014, which might be a better fit? Hit me with a synopsis and I'll let you know.

Congratulations again!

I hope this one's still open - I'm almost done with a horrendously blatant rip-off of Moby Dick (though lacking any of the redeeming symbolism), and it'd be good to see how it reads from some-one else's point of view.

See, and then I read back in the thread a little, to the post where you already said that. *sigh*

Ah, well. Cracks away! Wait, that's not right...

Well... I've reworked my original (rather light and tongue-in-cheek) idea and made it a lot darker. It's definitely "sea monster", but I'm not sure it's "hunter"... although it does involve an attempt to kill the beast. I may have to run the synopsis past you first.
