Has a really evil person of this Faith ever been exwecuted and then buried instead of cremated for his/her crimes? (thus wiping out their soul as well as their living body.)

Oooo ... now that's a nasty punishment. I like the idea, and yes, I can see it happening.

Superb. Beautifully rendered mythos with a staggering amount of juicy detail! (More thoughts when I'm less exhausted). Welcome to the Citadel!

It seem GC ate my previous commentary, so let me try this again:

An exhaustive amount of information and very in depth plot that is quite memorable; I particularly like the link backs in the intro to other subs, it makes for a convenient reference for the reader. 

However I do find the amount of depth  here to be a little rigid and difficult to easily work into an already established campaign setting without it feeling like it was shoehorned in somewhat.

Adding in an additional section with plot hooks and adventure concepts, as well as some suggestions on how to include this faith/legend into an existing fantasy world would complete the piece for me, and give it that last bit of "ready to use" feeling it seems to lack for me.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.

[b]Plothook[/b] The Mermen Mercantile Alliance hires the party to eradicate all terrestrial Pearl Spider Farms!
