The Arachnids number among Lyboria’s oldest races. The mystical dark woods are their home. According to their mythology, they originated from a legendary tree, the shadow tree.
It is said that two creatures wrapped in cocoons hung from that tree and hatched on the first day of winter. One of those creatures was said to be a spider, the other a scorpion.
This mysterious tribe lives independently in its homeland, the dark woods, from which only a few of Lyboria's inhabitants have managed to escape alive. What makes this species special are the respective hierarchies. Whereas the spiders have a matriarchal society, it is the men who rule the roost amongst the scorpions.

In terms of troop strength they outshine all the other races by ease. Even though they are not as robust and strong as many other races, their mobility and willingness to make sacrifices gets underrated often.
