Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.


Spider (Cabbage Warehouse)

This is not the household type. Poisonous, possibly: ugly, certainly, it crouches in its spot glaring up at the world with a cluster of beady black eyes under a mop of itchy bristles. It looks excessively unattractive.

  • Alignment: Details needed.

Gigantic pale spider

A giant pale mutant of a spider, this is definitely not your mild-mannered garden beast. It's something bred and twisted and deformed by generations of sewer living, with hairy legs and eyes that glow in the dark. It looks excessively unattractive.

  • Alignment: Details needed.

Giant spider

This is a massive black spider, at least five feet in length. It seems to stare evilly at you through thousands of tiny eyes. Two massive fangs protrude from its mouth, dripping with venom.

  • Alignment: 2-4 degrees of evil


Spider (Chronides Farmsted)

This is a fat, ugly spider with eight brown and white hairy legs and a lot of attitude. It's a creepy little monster that brings to mind a plot for a moving picture to be aptly called 'Arachnophobia'. Luckily this one seems to have gotten a bit squashed and won't be running off to Holy Wood anytime soon.

  • Alignment: N/A

Spider (Bad Ass - Granny Weatherwax's Cottage)

A fat, hairy, silk-producing arachnid, which has mutated over years of exposure to the fumes from brewing into a truly awesome monster. Unfortunately, this one has been slightly squished.

  • Alignment: N/A


  • Non-poisonous spiders can be caught at Chronides Farmsted and Granny Weatherwax's cottage (chimney). (syntax: 'catch' spider). Ground up spiders are an ingredient in antivenom.
  • Glands taken from (dead) giant or pale gigantic spiders (syntax: 'get gland from corpse') are an ingredient for assassins to make poison.

Special Notes

  • Giant and gigantic pale spiders are aggressive!
  • If you pick up the spiders in the cabbage warehouse in Sto Lat, they will deal unresisted damage to you until you drop them.
  • Spiders are either (mostly) harmless and live in dusty places, or big, poisonous beasts that try to kill you in the Gloomy Forest or Sto Lat sewers.
