Race Proposal: Drider

Half-joke. Intended as a large race that's good at magic. Same race as Arachne. Half Elf, Half Giant Spider.

Weirdness/Mutations:
  • Large Size: Poor base-size for dodging. Large enough to use large rocks.
  • Spider Legs - Clinging. Immunity to webs. Good base stealth.
  • Exoskeleton - (+Level / 3) AC, rPois-.
  • Ensnare - You can spit webs to attempt to ensnare enemies on a long breath timer (Slowest Breath ability).
  • See Invis
  • Malformed - Half AC from body armour.

Stats:
  • STR: 6
  • INT: 12
  • DEX: 8
  • Gain Random Int/Dex every 4th level.

Aptitudes:
  Code:
Dd: Fighting: -2*, Short: -1, Long: -1, Axes: -2, Maces: -2, Polearms: -2, Staves: -1, Slings: -2, Bows: 1, Xbows: -1, Throw: -2*, Armour: -4*, Dodge: -2, Stealth: 3, Shields: -3*, UC: -2*,

I'm beginning to feel like a Cat God! Felid streaks: {FeVM^Sif Muna, FeWn^Dithmenos, FeAr^Pakellas}, {FeEE^Ashenzari, FeEn^Gozag, FeNe^Sif Muna, FeAE^Vehumet...(ongoing)}

Re: Race Proposal: Drider

If we were building all species from scratch, maybe. In current state Drider isn't unique enough. Innate AC, poor dodging, malformed body and sInv makes it naga-like. Even apts aren't that much different. What is "new" is spit and rPois. Speaking of the latter - rpois- does not work well on species. Formicids started as a Rpois- species, but it was so annoying, that fortunately devs decided to remove it.
