DonM seems to have captured more of the spirit of the original Addaxur from '''''CT Alien Module 4''''' in the MgT version, but the GT version by David Pulver where they are called the Clotho is likewise a very interesting race description.  But both the illustrations and the descriptions of the two are different. What would be the best way to preserve both versions, since both can make a claim to being "canon"?

::DonM's description is on '''MgT Alien Module 4: Zhodani''', p.63.  There is an illustration on p.64, which is entirely different from the GT illustration. There is no mention of their silk-spinning or symbols in MgT, nor any hint of their brother-sister pairs as a basis of their psychology & culture.  They have "packs" as the basis of their culture in MgT.  MgT mentions that Imperial diplomats described them as "six-legged armadillos", a description which is borne out by the accompanying illustration, which looks nothing like the Clotho in GT. The MgT and GT descriptions are completely unalike.  But both are interesting.

: I have seen that illustration. Don's Mongoose-vision and the Pulver's GURPS- vision are at loggerheads.
 
: So we have two Clotho:
 
# Spider-like Clotho
 
# Space beetle-like Clotho
