Drider Hive: The Nests.

Drider Hive: The Nests.

Postby kembaru » Fri Aug 11, 2006 10:44 pm

Where the rest of the hive is dedicated to business, working areas, markets and recreational services, there is still the very neccessary element that had to be considered in every settlement, the facts being that everyone needs a place to sleep and live when they are not working.

The Nests are a sprwaling mass constructed from a network of age old yet solid silk tunnels and small caverns, here is where people live, from the tiny filing cabinets of the newly independant to the great cavernous spaces of the elders, higher up is the older part of the hive, smaller and more crudely constructed homes, where closer to the bottom are the newer and often more luxurious homes.

The Hive having been built from the cieling downwards accepts the fact that when the Nests rest on the ground then they will be powerful enough to not have to worry about being found out more easily.

---Notable Persons---

Kulkiin
Technically an Elder, Kulkiin is regardless always to busy to actually get any elder-ing done, the male drider in charge of literally everything else in the hive, an overworked and generally worried male he is in charge of the Hive's construction and maintenance, the upkeep of the webbing that prevents it from crashing to the cavern below, keeping the Hive clean, making sure that there is enough water from the lake, in reality, everything.

Not particularly tall or well built, Kulkiin is thin, with constantly worried eyes and a worn out expression, short hair and is workmanlike in dress and manner, often gruff and surly from over work.

Isto'uss strode out of the tavern into the greater whole of the Hive, looking to see that Imsen was fairly close.

Indeed she was, taking up her customary position of behind him a few steps, and close enough that if she moved foward any their legs would start to get tangled up. She was looking around this time though, taking in her surroundings anew.

Isto'uss began ascending up a slightly vertical climb and turned back to Imsen for a moment. "So," he asked. "Would you like to learn some of the fundamentals of magic once we arrive at my residence?"

Imsen smiled, her eyes lighting up. "I wouldn't say no..." she said, a wry grin on her face.

The great structure of the Mother's Rest rose into view as the two of them traversed another silken ridge. "Very well then," noted Isto'uss.

Imsen could feel her eyes grow large in awe as she took in the structure, slowing a bit. When she tore her eyes from it, she had to scuttle rather quickly to meet back up with Isto'uss.

"Impressive, isn't it?" asked Isto'uss as Imsen scuttled to keep up. "You may be able to see it from within soon enough." Smiling slightly, he continued through the various drider residences toward his own, which was located in the higher middle region.

Iron was at one of the homes dropping off a costume order; a female wanted two steel hair sticks, they made good hair accessories, and a deadly secret weapon. It’s also a good and affordable item for the drider that didn’t have much, nor had the skill to weald a sword. She was quite appreciative for the visit, and loved the accessories, warring them almost as soon as she got them.

Iron stepped out and waived back to the girl, quickly looking around he could see some of the other females eyeing the accessories holding up the girl’s hair. "It looked like that could make a good item to sell in the shop, something that makes good jewelry, and a weapon. I'll have one of my apprentices work on a few."

Imsen smiled, whilst inside herself there was something of a mental squabble going on between her stomach and her mind, along with her heart. She wasn't in love with the drider infront of her, no. But she hadn't thought it possible to be so thankful towards someone.

Isto'uss navigated along some other slightly vertical routes and stopped in front of a fairly well kept, silken residence. It didn't particularly stand out among the surrounding homes but it was his home. He waved a hand across the door as both he and Imsen approached and it swung wide, admitting the two entrance.

((And now I make a new thread))
