Finally, it is revealed! If you folks have no idea what I'm talking about recently I submitted a mysterious set of buildings (redpanda7.deviantart.com/art/M…
) and wouldn't tell anyone what lived there. At least until today.
Now, if you (the watchers) had checked out the scraps you would of seen this redpanda7.deviantart.com/art/I…
and would of probably guessed what lived in these little villages (whilst I'm talking about that little thing I'd like to say sorry to my friend for how long it took to make this).Now, there are plans for actual clothing for this guy (which I didn't do because it's difficult to imagine what a tribal spider would wear) and more variants for different tribes but for now, we'll settle for this guy.
Anyway, please leave a comment below dear internet travellers!

Spawns: Tribal Villages in Mega Taiga biomes
Behaviour: Spider folk will stay around their villages, though sometimes a few will go off to gather food (AKA kill animals and take their flesh). There are several different members of the tribe that will do different things however. As mentioned, there's hunters that carry stone axes and tribal spears and will hunt animals during the day. There's also breeders that carry carrots around with them, and will breed pigs when they can be, guards that stay in the village to guard it against players and other destructive entities. When night comes however, all spider folk gather around the fire place and begin dancing for the night, where the fire keeper (a spider folk that keeps the fire going) keeps watch of the fire itself. These dances can be interrupted by two things though. Being hit by players, and if a skeleton is nearby. This is because spider folk and skeletons have a feud with each other (due to skeletons 'enslaving' spiders and bipedal spiders being an insult to skeletons) and will attack each other on sight.
Trading Behaviour: That's right, you can trade with them! Due to their hatred for skeletons, they use a collection of bones and skulls as a basic currency amongst them. With all spider folk, the first five trades can be brought/sold for bones and are simple objects (food, seeds, dyes ETC) due to their tribal nature. However, by the sixth and final trade with a spider folk they will actually be offering a rare object (diamonds, enchantment books, TNT ETC) for skulls (which should be a rare drop, let's face it). However, if the player offends a tribe by either attacking one of their own or taking out their fire, then spider folk won't be trading. They'll be attacking.
Attack Methods: Spider folk are a strategic lot, and will attack things in a group made up of axe and spear users, which can involve the entire villager due to the fact that they can switch out items. Axe using spider folk will run straight at the enemy and start hitting them whilst spear using spider folk will do one of two things. Either just join in with the axe users or walk a large circle around the enemy and throw their spears at them.
