Arachnophobia Warning
There are some very large, very menacing-looking spiders below!
Please don’t continue unless you are comfortable seeing them.

Sinister Spider battle map - Banner - Large

You can thank Connor Johnston for this fresh horror! They modeled this creature after my old Colossal Crab and, like it, this comes with its own battle map: the Sinister Woodland. There you will find map variants with an open trapdoor and reaching webs.

Our spider also comes in two varieties: trapdoor and widow. They might be friends, but perhaps they are old rivals lording over two extremities of the woods? They might even hire adventurers in an attempt to consolidate the forest, appearing as a silver-tongued telepathic message urging them to “slay the terrible spider over yonder” – speaking of the other one, of course, for they themselves are the finest form a creature could take.

Whatever unsettling idea you come up with, we’d love to hear them in the comments! Have fun. 🙂

  1. The skull markings on the trapdoor spider are a nice touch. And the sword spider legs give a GM options to incorporate that element or not. Well done.

    Re: the blacked out diagram at the top. You have a thing about spiders, don't you?

    Those of us who've been up north, we know there are worse things.

    What would be funny is, the PCs kill the colossal spider, cleverly going after it in the winter months to give them any chance at all. Two months later, a hatching swarm of pigeon-sized mosquitoes (use stirge) breezes through the tattered remains of her webs and exsanguinates the town…
