Ants and Wasps are my first two picks, they're both incredibly aggressive, militaristic, and since they're Hives, so long as Knight has control over the Queen, he can control the Hive, though obviously not to the degree that he thinks going by some of the fluff in Conspiracies.

Well, you could beat it with a smartlink, but that's a sensitive piece of equipment that you really don't want to de-zero.

So if we narrowed it down to ants or wasps.

Knight is ambitious. I personally think he would go for gargantuan ants or garuda wasps. Why shoot for less than the best soldiers. The mere thought of Garuda wasp based wasp spirits scares the bajeebus out of me.

http://www.scienceomega.com/article/259/scientists-discover-the-king-of-wasps

6.35cm long (2.5 inches) nearly 3 times the mass of a common wasp.

That or Jewel Wasps, but they would be too damned dangerous. Poison is too strong in them.

Hmm thoughts to chew on.

Ants and Wasps are the two most likely types. Maybe Beetles. Remember, though, that Street Magic allowed for virtually any insect spirit type and to just use the rules for the types of insects listed. Hence, Bee and Locust spirits. So it's just a matter of choosing what you think is most approrpriate and going to town.


As they maybe dont have exact equivalent of TacNet, they have Hive Mind power, and thats also a bit...scarry...

Just to be clear, that is a sanctioned Optional Rule.

Quote from: Artifacts Unbound, 84
They are attacked by up to a dozen of flesh-form wasp soldiers. These bugs work frighteningly well in small unit tactics thanks to their hive-mind telepathic connection. If the gamemaster is feeling particularly sadistic, they could use the bonuses that tactical AR software (Rating 4) can give [JM: Emphasis mine] (see p. 126, Unwired) to reflect the spirits’ unit cohesion and tactical awareness. This is especially encouraged if the runners are proving to be too difficult for the spirits.

And that's in Part Two of Five in that particular adventure.

You're welcome. :D

I think the one who tried to kill Soaring Eagle was a beetle.
