Arachnia[edit]

Personality[edit]

Arachnia tend to be quite selfish. They prefer to help themselves more than others, yet will help if necessary. They are rude towards others, but can be very loyal to those who help them. They dislike the law, because it prevents them from living their own life as they wish. They feel more comfortable with upper society and prefer pristine items, and can seem uptight to some.

Physical Description[edit]

Arachnia are about 6-7 feet tall on average, and loom above many other races, this is for an intimidation effect. They have six arms and two legs, along with eight eyes. Due to the number of limbs, they can wield, for example, 3 two-handed weapons. They usually have light-purple, pink or brown skin, but can also be covered with a light film of silk depending on the species. They can have hair, but it's uncommon on the silk-covered ones. They prefer to dress well, and will often need a special tailor or blacksmith for their clothing and armour. They can also crawl on all fours and have sharp teeth, this includes two particularly large fangs that cannot fit entirely inside the mouth.

Relations[edit]

Any bug-like races, the Arachnia will attempt to tease and consume without thought for the creatures themselves. They are also equally disdainful towards Avians, Kitsunes, and other bird/dog-like races. They are not commonly liked, and many find them repulsive.

Alignment[edit]

Always Chaotic. Good and Evil are optional.

Lands[edit]

Arachnia have no preference.

Religion[edit]

They worship the deity Lolth, or, alternately, Arachine.

Language[edit]

They know Common and Arachnic at the start of their life.

Names[edit]

They are named by their parents for whatever they wish to be named, but are always civilized and upper-class names.
