    I like the looks of your species, DeadlyLuvdisc. I really hope that the developpers will approach you to add it to the game, as one of their post-release additions.

    We need more people to vote up this suggestion. People! Don't let this art go to waste!

    I kindof like this race. It reminds me of the race of centaurian spider-people that I invented for a race of NPCs/Mobs. Mine died into obscurity, but I sincerely hope a well-developed race like this takes notice. =D

    That gives me another idea for a back-accessory-- Four additional legs that reduce knockback as long as you are touching ground. I'll have to think a bit about how to do that without them looking odd because of the way leg animations work, but it would be really nice to have a back item that is worn lower on the back... Maybe I could try to design it based on the bustle, a feature of women's dresses in the later half of the 19th century.

    What about mechanical spider-like legs sticking out of the shoulders?Like Dr. Octopus!

    I would like to play this race. Sprites are really good looking.

    I'd lie if i said that those guys don't creep me out.
    But, they're also cool, the lore is deep and the concept is quite fresh.
    So, thumbs up from me :up:

    Armor MXo.png ? The purple parts are mechanical legs that allow you to climb walls and/or grapple using synthetic spider silk strands.
    They can't hold additional weapons though, because that seems too powerful to me, and not spidery enough.

    Me too, and I'm the one who made 'em. I've started to try to tie-in a sort of demonic element, like the Hindu goddess, Kali.
    Maybe an armor that uses a necklace of skulls, or looks like a giant skull, or something like that.

    I have a gut feeling this race might be greenlit for an expansion...

    That would terrify me, because I haven't had the time to work on it for a while, despite my intentions.

    I have to pay tuition and living costs, you know? This is really just a hobby, and once the game is out I'll be playing it.

    Honestly, this is my favorite race out of any suggestion, it even surpasses the confirmed races IMHO.

    I'm sure if you gave Chucklefish the okay, they would take the work off your hands, whilst preserving the feel of your creation.

    You know, I think I could improve the humor of the race. It seems a little too serious, actually.

    Maybe because of all the libraries being burned in the war, the vast majority of Arachneidi don't even know what the war of light and dark was about anyway. Theories could span from preferring vanilla over chocolate to whether gentlemen really do prefer blondes. Incidentally, the name of the war was inspired by my favorite board game, Weiqi, but Chess also uses black and white pieces. Maybe some powerful leaders were playing a game and one of them was a sore loser, leading to an all-out war.

    To preserve the original reason for the war, maybe the conflict started over something silly, but then each side was hijacked by the followers. Like the generals started fighting over the board game dispute, but their soldiers continued the war because of opposed ideologies.

    They could also be as afraid of apes as humans are of spiders. They might have also evolved high rates of agoraphobia, too.

    I seriously hope they could add this race, it would probably be weeks (maybe even months) after release but I shall not rest 'till they're in!
