Waste Spiders

By:

"...I watched in morbid fascination as the Spider and the Rat circled each other. Soon one would be dead. My silver was on the Spider crawling away from this fight. ..." Exerpt: A Prospector’s Tale, VOL XXIII Blue Guild Press

There are hundreds of spider types in The Wastes. They all tend to be hairy, colorful, and of moderate size (1-1.5" or 2-4 cms).

The most common spiders that people notice are called Waste Spiders. These spiders are larger than hand sized; being big, furry, and in a mottle of earth tones. These spiders do not spin webs (but do use web as drop lines), but have a scorpion-esk tails with potent paralyzing venom.

Prospectors of the right inclination will stalk Waste Spiders and "milk" them of their venom. This venom has a variety of therapeutic and less savory uses.

Note: some Waste Spiders have been reported to "spit" some kind of venom as well. But these may be rumors. However, thanks to the special nature of The Wastes and Hellpits, anything is possible.

Fear the Gods

       By: manfred

Culture/Religion: based on fear and respect. Gods are very dangerous creatures, sometimes friendly, often not. Temples are the way to make contact with them... if not easier, then at least more concentrated in one place. Were it not for the temples, gods could be running amok among the people. Therefore, mortals have to keep the gods close to temples, entertained and worshipped. It doesn't make the bad ones any friendlier, though (and is no guarantee some won't go on trips now and then). Still, there have to be priests that are hardy men, able to survive the rigours of their position, get a sufficient number of worshippers to make the gods feel important enough, and mediate the contact between mortals and immortals.
