Aracne was not a goddess, she was a weaver who boasted that her weaving was better than that of Athena, goddess of war, and crafts(Therefore including weaving). Athena challenged Arachne to a weaving competition under the guise of an old woman. Athena wove a tapestry of her victory over Poseidon that resulted in Athens being named after her. Arachne wove a tapestry showing 21 different problems the gods caused.
Athena agreed that Arachne was a better weaver, but was enraged at her topic choice. She destroyed Arachne's loom and struck Arachne on the head. Arachne, realizing her folly, fled and hung herself. Athena took pity on Arachne, and sprinkled her body with the juices of Monkshood. When she loosened the rope, it turned to a spider web and transformed Arachne into an immortal spider.
Other than that, the mod was very fun and well made.

I downloaded this mod, and have one question. What part of the protox makes Aracne detach itself from the rest of the army it is grouped in while moving? Aracne always speeds on ahead of the rest of the units,and it is a tiny annoyance.
