The Klicklikak is a distinctive, sleek-looking ship that resembles a grasshopper's head with two long antennae trailing behind it. The ship's name means "service to Klikral" in the insectare native tongue. The Klicklikak is powered by an insectare helm, a device which functions exactly as a standard helm (it may be either major or minor), with the exception that it includes a shiny copper sphere with two holes in it through which the insectare insert their antennae. Only insectare can use these helms, and conversely (for reasons which remain unexplained), insectare cannot use other helm types.
A Klicklikak will carry at least 2 mages to serve as spelljammers. The captain is often a multi-classed fighter/mage, or fighter/wizard/thief. The remainder of the crew (which will typically number about 8-10) will usually be fighters or thieves. The exact organization of the crew is a closely-guarded secret, as with so many other aspects of insectare life.
Unknown: Klicklikaks are only very rarely encountered, and thus far none have been able to determine what missions they have been on. Insectare are much more often encountered hidden on the ships of other races, working behind the scenes on their schemes. It is unknown what might might incite the insectare to use their own ships outside of their hidden home sphere. Though adequately armed, all Klicklikaks so far encountered have endeavored to flee from any who have seen them.
No other configurations of the Klicklikak have been encountered; however, considering how few have ever been sighted, it is entirely possible that modified versions exist.
