Waste Spiders


"...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.

It has been said that within the mountains (or was it the darklands?) there dwells a fluffy creature of immense cuteness. This creature is so adorable that all who encounter it are filled with joy so great their mortal forms cannot contain it. And they explode. Several magic institutions are desperate to study the creature or better yet capture one to prove the theory of an elemental plane of "D'Awwww".
