[New Monster] Sisters of the Great Spider

Sisters of the Great Spider

Chalk showed up at the inn a little earlier than planned and caught Valance in a close conversation with a rather alluring female. She glared at the wizard as he approached.

“Sorry, I wrapped business up a bit sooner than expected,” Chalk said.

“I really must be going, be a dear, Valance, and remember what I said,” the woman told the priest of the Spider God with a slightly sinister look.

Valance nodded and smiled.

Chalk sat down next to Valance.

“Who was that? She is gorgeous!” exclaimed Chalk.

“Ah, Chalk, you simple hedge-wizard! That is no woman, but a Sister of the Spider!” the cleric said.

Chalk was not sure what that meant, but with Valance involved it probably wasn’t good.

The Sisters of the Great Spider are priestesses of the Spider God called to the Web Between Worlds when they are ready to be judged by this horrific deity. Those who undergo the scrutiny of the Spider God and are determined to be vile and treacherous enough are transformed into Sisters of the Great Spider while those who do not meet the Spider God’s requirements are consumed. Transformed priestesses become even more alluring (min Charisma 16) and use this charm to further the ends of the Spider God when sent back to the Material Plane. Three times per day a Sister of the Great Spider may cast the following as spell-like abilities: Blink, Polymorph Self (into a Giant Spider), Protection from Good (15′ radius), Summon Monster (1d4 Giant Spiders of any type), Spider Climb, and Web,all as if cast by a 7th level magic-user. Once per day a Sister of the Great Spider may Polymorph Self into any female humanoid form.

Sisters of the Great Spider love using poison and often carry a hand weapon coated in spider venom, although most any poison will work in a pinch. The bite of one of these creatures, in humanoid or spider form is also poisonous.

    I love posts with details about the Spider God and his followers. Any chance you can link some more or give us more?

      I can make another tag if you like! I will do that this weekend. In addition, my original Spider God concept was inspired by this tale by Lord Dunsany: “The Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweller, and of the Doom that Befel Him”
