Special Abilities

Dream Web (Ex) A dream spider’s webs have an iridescent hue, making them easier to notice than the typical spider’s web (Perception DC 15). Any animal, humanoid, or monstrous humanoid that contacts these webs experiences strange hallucinations, taking 1 point of Wisdom damage per round of contact. A successful DC 11 Fortitude save negates this damage. If the webs of a dream spider are burned, they spread poisonous gas in a 10-foot radius. This gas deals 1d4 points of Wisdom damage to all creatures in the area (not just to those in contact with the webs). A successful DC 11 Fortitude save halves this damage. The cloud of colorful vapor remains for 1 round only before dissipating harmlessly. The Wisdom damage effect of a dream web is a poison effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Poison (Ex) Bite—injury; save Fort DC 11; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect 1d2 Wis; cure 1 save.


Transplants from the Mwangi Expanse (where these spiders can grow to truly enormous proportions), dream spiders have become a significant but valuable infestation in Korvosa’s Shingles, for the venom of one of these spiders can be distilled into the popular but dangerous drug known as shiver.
