SPECIES OVERVIEW

Screenshot 2022-11-13 213309.png

A sudden rainfall not only brings cool calming breezes, it sometimes welcomes unexpected guests. Enter the locust. Locusts resemble their grasshopper cousins and can attack in swarms, devastating all plant material around them.

Appearance-wise this finely tuned grass eating machine is a heavily built insect with a blocky appearance with greenish-yellow hind wings, solid rear legs for jumping and devastating chewing mouthparts. The adults are solid and steady flyers, able to manoeuvre the strongest headwind.

 

The front part of the thorax has a strong shield capable of absorbing a variety of otherwise deadly attacks.

Their playstyle is well, prey. beware as spiders and the like try to hunt you down. Although you do have a few tricks up your abdomen...
