Real Live RPG Spider Monsters in Taiwan
Posted on Monday, September 12 @ 05:47:29 Eastern by Josh_LaddinThe Gamania Game Show may be over, but I'm still kickin' it over here for another few days to explore and find cool shit before making the flight back to the States. I think this qualifies.
I found these spiders yesterday hiking around the Maokong mountains with a friend, which is more or less a tropical rainforest-type climate. They're literally bigger than your hand, some of them reaching half a foot long. After my initial shock at seeing something this freaky right in my face, my mind immediately went to the giant spider monsters that you've seen as enemies in pretty much every RPG ever made.
These things were fucking everywhere, whether people inhabited the area or not. They're fearless, they're huge, and they're organized, just waiting for an evil sorcerer or emperor to come along and form them into an arachnid army.
I know there's at least one thing over here that I won't miss when I get back home.
