I created the Ourgikon race for a Pathfinder game back in 2012. I’ve adapted the idea for a Savage Worlds game. Hope you find it useful!
Here is the PDF.
Ourgikon aka. Arachnids
Although humans call them Arachnids (or just “Spiders”), this race calls themselves the Ourgikon (“Weavers” or “Makers”), or more formally the Battourgikon (“Deep Weavers” or “Deep Makers”). The singular form is Ourgikos.
The Ourgikon are a medium-sized race similar enough to humans in form to pass for one in the dark. They have four limbs and walk upright although their form seems somewhat hunched. Observed closely, there is little confusion over their identity. Their heads are the most spider-like, with two primary eyes and four secondary eyes, mandibles, and coarse hairs that cover their body (usually brown or black, turning gray and white with age). Most do not have an exoskeleton, but their bones have begun to hollow and move closer to the surface.
The Ourgikon were once more human in appearance than they are now but over the ages they have grown away from humanity, and humanity has reciprocated. Ourgikon are typically viewed as monsters and are rarely seen on the surface. They can occasionally be found in the service of Lawful Evil Lords as assassins. Ourgikon assassins are masters of poison, skilled climbers, and silent killers.
Ecology & Society:
Ourgikon life is centered around the female. Once her egg sack is full, she usually distances herself from the male, sometimes killing him to make sure he does not return and disturb the nest. The children are born fully formed and mobile, but often cling to the mother for months before leaving. Many die before reaching maturity.
Ourgikon have a close affinity to humans, at least those who are not repulsed by their appearance and affinity to blood sacrifice to Ayiyi. There are a variety of races that likewise descend from the worship of Ayiyi, including Arachs, Drow, Driders, Bugbears, Mites, Aranea, & Ettercaps.
Arachs compete with the Ourgikon in the Deep Underground, but they will often act as allies against common enemies.
Drow and Driders may be allies or enemies, depending on the DM. Both Drow and Ourgikon worship a spider god, and the Driders and Arachs demonstrate that Lolth and Ayiyi were probably once the same goddess. The DM may rule that the Drow and Ourgikon are allies because of their common worship, or that they are bitter enemies because each considers the other race to be heretics.
Bugbears are a servant race of the Ourgikon and will usually follow their commands without question.
Mites are friendly to the Ourgikon, but are viewed with disdain.
Aranea and Ettercaps are not friendly with the Ourgikon.
As for other races, Orcs are disliked, but sometimes also allies. Halflings are viewed with humor and disdain, and are a preferred offering to Ayiyi as they are so fat and delicious. Dwarves and Gnomes are enemies. Elves are the most hated enemy of the Ourgikon.
Alignment and Religion:
The Ourgikon worship the female aspect of the Spider God Ayiyi. As a female, Ayiyi is the Weaver of the World, a god of Law and of creation. In his male form, Ayiyi is a Trickster god, and a god of mischief and Chaos. The Arachs are a degenerate remnant of the worshippers of the male form as are the Bugbears, who still drink spider venom in search of mystic visions. According to the Ourgikon, Ayiyi’s female aspect was the most important. There is some evidence of that in that the Bugbears will still usually take commands from the Ourgikon.
