Race of large ant like creatures. Tall and bipedal with a hard outer shell and a harder mind. The hive is linked together in a psychic connection and controlled by the queen at the heart of the nest. Formians are usually content to leave the soft races alone, and some hives have even been known to have friendly relations with others.
A Formian hive is made up of several different types of Formians. Drones are the simplest creatures and exist to do basic tasks. Taskmasters will usually accompany large groups of drones to direct them. Centurions are the warriors of the hive and will defend it with their lives. The queen commands the hive and the hive depends on the queen to function. A hive without a queen will descend into chaos and destroy itself.
A large nest on The Pearl recently became very aggressive and killed several miners. The party investigated and discovered that some sort of shadow demon had taken over the queen's mind and was causing the hive to rampage. They were able to defeat the shadow and the hive has since become friendly again.
