5E Homebrew Race: Ærachna (Spider-folk)

Ærachna (Spider-folk )

Ærachna (Spider-Folk)

Ærachna are humanoid hybrid spider-folk. They are primarily a society of treetop dwelling clans who live in untamed  jungle forests. They are known throughout the realms for both their weaving craft and divination magic. 

Wyrdweavers and Talespinners

Ærachna magically tend to be diviners and storytellers. Many practitioners follow the weft and weave of prophecy and fate in the strands of magical webbing called the Web of Wyrd. However there are those equally adept at spinning tales of wonder and enchantment into both word and webcraft.

Ærachna and Driders

Many Aerachna Clans have been mistaken for drow driders because they share some semblance of appearance. This has caused Ærachna Clans to become secretive and shy of outsiders. However, many Aerachna are insatiably curious and have chosen to adventure and have been given heroic renown.
