[New Monster] Dragon-spider

Dragon-spider

Chalk drew his enchanted dagger and began cutting through the strange webbing that held Valance fast.

“The irony of this situation is amazing,” the wizard commented as he cut through the thick strands.

“Yeah, yeah, I am sure that this is amusing,” replied the priest of the Spider God.

“I mean, what does your deity think of this?

“Hopefully he isn’t watching,” Valance answered.

From the Web Between Worlds the Spider God frowned as he watched his priest being cut from the webbing of the strange dragon-spiders and pondered a suitable penance.

These small relatives of dragon-kind are of an unknown origin and are quite a handful to deal with in combat. About the size of a medium sized dog, these eight-legged creatures almost resemble a winged basilisk and are no less dangerous due to their cunning and strange breath weapon: three times per day a dragon-spider may breathe a sticky webbing similar to a Web spell, but with the following adjustments; range is 60′, the webbing takes up a space 15x15x30 feet, lasts up to ten hours and takes an average human 4 turns (40 minutes) to escape from without the aid of a torch or similar burning device (1 turn-ten minutes in this case).

Dragon-spiders like to creep around in the dark and surprise their foes whenever possible and often ambush their prey in masses of webbing to save for a later meal.
