From publisher blurb:
Oh, What Tangled Webs We Weave!
While the player characters are always the stars of every adventure, the most important supporting roles are almost always played by their foes, whether they take the form of terrible monsters with strange and awesome powers, or NPCs who rely on skill and training to rival adventurers in combat. In either case, it is often the abilities and powers of these opponents that make each combat a memorable and exciting experience, and so each installment of Fearsome Foes presents a number of new opponents connected to a specific theme, each of which has fun and memorable abilities for GMs to unleash on unsuspecting players.
This installment provides six new types of spiders, which make suitable challenges for adventurers of any stripe. While all of these monsters are arachnid in shape, they employ a wide array of different tactics and abilities, and some are even intelligent enough to speak, but all possess the devious cunning and clever tactics one would expect from a monstrous spider. In this book you’ll find:
- The leafcrown spider (level 3), part plant and part arachnid, these ambush predators can camouflage themselves in foliage, and leap down on prey from above, pinning them to the ground.
- The carrier spider (level 10), an immense spider capable of mentally controlling lesser vermin. It carries thousands of smaller spiders with it wherever it goes, allowing it to unleash multiple spider swarms on its foes.
- The webcaller spider (level 14), huge vermin whose webs emit a mystical aura that draw weak-minded prey directly towards them, and which can hide in other dimensions to ambush its prey.
- And many more!
