Death’s Eye Spider

Death’s Eye Spider

A giant brown spider, known only in the Kaelnor forest, derives its name from a ghostly white oval on its abdomen. It is a hunting spider, and does not use webs to capture its prey.

 

Death Eye spiders are used by the Arnach Goblins as a means of attack and transportation. The goblins can get them to place traps with webs or create mazes among the trees. Like the standard hunting spider, they do not cast webs. Spider Wranglers can also use the spider’s poison and its egg sacs as a form of attack. See the Arnach Goblin for the effects for these.

 

These spiders are 4 feet head to abdomen, and with legs spread, they are closer to 9 feet in length. They are mostly a dark brown save for an ghostly white oval on their stomach, which is what gives them the name Death’s Eye Spider.
