The Giant Whip-Spider is a Weekly Beastie developed by Gorgon Breath Games! You can support additional monsters through a pay-what-you-want donation, or backing our Patreon. Check out our home page for more details!

A highly territorial relative of the Giant Spider and Giant Scorpion, the Giant Whip-Spider, (or Amblypygus), is both more and less threatening than its cousins. While it lacks a venomous bite or sting, it’s as fast as a horse and large enough to consider most creatures smaller than itself as potential prey.

Six of the arachnid’s legs are long, slender things used for locomotion - sometimes forward, but more often sideways like a crab. Two, however, are adapted into long whip-like antennae which are used to feel out environments and locate suitable prey - and as a side effect of the creature’s immense size, to literally whip soft-skinned enemies into submission. Their massive pedipalps are used much like a Mantis’ forelimbs - to grab, pierce, and crush enemies while the spider eats them.

For such territorial creatures, they can be oddly social - mothers of some broods have been observed communicating with their young using their feelers. Rumor has it that some tribes of Kobolds have managed to tame Giant Amblypygi using whips to communicate simple commands.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
