Silverspider

By:

They are beautiful in an icky fuzzy spider way.

Full Description
This spider is the size of a man’s hand and has a beautiful (as far as that word can be applied to a spider) body covered in soft silver hairs. They live in groups of up to ten on large orb webs that can be up to forty feet long and five feet high. Their normal diet is insects. If they bite a human the effect is to give the human a sense of total happiness that lasts for an hour. Many humans will end up getting bitten on purpose after getting addicted to the venom. A small amount of venom just makes a person a bit slow-witted. Too much will lead to brain damage or even death.

Spider sense tingling! I need a new dose!

a black market might evolve about the spiders - those with a better/purer/less dangerous venom earning a prime price...

or the people could collect them like pokemons and exchange tips aout what soft of bug to feed them so that the venom has a better/different effect

I like this post. It's not something to fight, but is something that could really add to a world. A player or NPC could become hooked... players could have to find more spiders... the spiders could get a sickness and the players are asked to find a way to cure them by a rich addict. Recreational drug use is very realistic, and I'm sure in "dark" times like most campaigns the urge of common folk to "escape" would be quite high.

Nice example of a background item - something that makes the game world just a little more "real" - like it - 4/5

This shows some great ideas Cheka. I really like the idea of their bite being addicting, however I feel that this needs to be better detailed in order to make it a better submission. I realize this is an older submission but I think it has far better potential than a single paragraph.

I would like more from this submission, it brings to mind another submission I read somewhere about a place that lives in harmony with a colony of spiders deep in the swamp. I think the venom is what makes them unique, and should be elaborated on.

Short, but quite interesting. Given that many drugs were intended as toxins by the plants and animals that produce them, this seems reasonable.

Someone _could_ put an illusion on a non-silverspider as an means to assassinate someone.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
