Considering their ability to cast spells it is quite possible the Aranea are capable of speech, though I always imagined they chose not to talk because of their high pitched, chirpy, happy sounding voices. Did the Aranea queen in Nethergate have a high pitched voice? I can't remember. Also was it sort of implied the GIFTs in Avernum did in fact originally come from the world of Nethergate? It's been a while since I played and I can't recall the GIFTs origin story all that well.

Actually, it was sort of implied in Nethergate that the GIFTS came from Avernum. Though obviously that makes no sense.

Araneas can prolly speak but since they see non-Araneas as enemies they don't speak to them. That Spider Queen/God/whatever in AEFTP spoke but it didn't have anything interesting to say.

If it made sense then we would lose less of our sanity while playing, we can't have that.  While I vaguely, sort of, maybe subscribe to the idea that Genefore and Avernum are related, I believe that N:R takes place on a different planet than the others (which would of course not prevent the GIFTS from moving from Avernum to Nethergate).

Never call an Aranea cute, They absolutely hate that.
