I was feeling a tad bored and just sat in my chair staring at the menu screen. Thought of something and might as well post it. So uh, since demons, horrors and the orcs used to be a bit of a mystery and didn't exist as something playable, DLC's came out detailing their lore and giving the player a much appreciated new set of options with classes and races. On one of my runs in the spider caves of The Far East, I was reminded that these humanoid spiderkin are a thing. Then I started thinking how spiders in general not only have the category "spiderkin" for themselves rather than something more generic, but also come in so many variations, it made me suspect a possible growth in terms of lore for spiders.
What do you think? Would you enjoy seeing such an addition, or did you suspect it yourself? Should I stop yapping about something not even hinted at by DarkGod instead?
Again, made this in a fit of boredom, so reply as you wish. Hope you have a nice day.

Same. We heard about it forever ago and then all talk of it disappeared. The note that you get out of the Robe of Spydre was also added as a teaser for this.

yeah I think that like work was paused on the orc campaign to get the smaller demon dlc out the door first.
the spid's got put on the backburner so we could get forbidden cults first.

and theirs still the big 1.6 change coming up and a lot of smaller content planned on top of the scale of building a whole new campaign with new races that judging by the look of some of the spiderkin
is gonna go into weird territory of different equipment slots for races.

were probably not gonna get much more about the campaign until they've got a final list of planned content and at least 80% of it coded.

Oh my, didn't expect this to actually hit something. I'm hella new to it all so I had no idea! Thanks for confirming it, and I'm actually happy that the other additions got to the spotlight first- at least for Cults. One of my favourite themes. Glad to know I wasn't chasing shadows then, and hopefully it gets somewhere soon.
Now that I think about it, the lack of addons about spiders should have been a giveaway too. Anyhow, cheers, and have a nice day!

I'm starting to wonder if the spider dlc will ever come out at all. Seems like development has slowed down a lot recently. The update to 1.6 has been in public beta for a year now and that's not even close to finished. That update only consists of balance changes so I doubt we'll be seeing any new content for a very long time - if at all.

I personally think DG's brilliance would be wasted if all he did was keep updating tome4 forever. I'm hoping for an a new DG game to be announced soon. Something with the class diversity and strategic depth of maj'eyal but a full fledged plot and fleshed out world to boot.

Latest dlc isn't even 6 months old and 1.6 was never in official beta, it was just Shibari trying to get some feedback, an official beta would have been posted on forums.

Saying development slowed down is crazy talk.
