Chitines typically rely upon traps and ambushes to help them overcome larger and more powerful creatures. Frequently they build normal looking spider webs with a seemingly natural way around it concealing a pit, drop net, or similar trap. They can harden their webbing to produce spikes and edges into their traps, typically dealing 1d6 points of damage each.
Sensitive to Sunlight (Ex): In sunlight and bright magical light (such as a daylight spell), chitines suffer a -1 penalty to attack and damage rolls.
Chitine villages are located in the middle of mazes of traps-laden webbing. The hard-web dwellings resemble domed houses, complete with windows and adorned with decorative shapes. They build freely on cavern floors, walls, and ceilings, connecting their buildings with br9idges of webbing. Suspended in the center of the cavern is a temple devoted to Gangyn. The choldrith - the priests of the chitines - are the undisputed leaders of chitine communities.
Chitine as Characters
The chitine's favored class is rogue. Chitine wizards and sorcerers are extremely rare, and their priests are actually members of another race - the choldrith. Chitine wizards are almost always illusionists specializing in shadow magic, and their sorcerers are universally descended from the shadow or spider-blooded heritage.
