|Thank you, Roger Corman.|
Number Appearing: Too many
Size: More or less human
Armor: Rigid chitin and blurring speed
Resilience: Not so much
Communication: Pheromones, mostly.
Violence: Nets, Man-catchers, paralyzing stinger if they're desperate enough to grapple
Enemies: Mice, of all things
Aims: Feed your still-living brain to their young.
- Only become sapient if fed a live intelligent humanoid as larvae. Use unintelligent drones as cannon fodder.
- Hunt giant spiders because they can.
- Strictly diurnal - cold and dark impair them greatly
- Not-so-strictly diurnal if someone's got artificial lights they can home in on
