Fearsome Foes - Monstrous Spiders

Watermarked PDF

Oh, What Tangled Webs We Weave!


While the player characters are always the stars of every adventure, the most important supporting roles are almost always played by their foes, whether they take the form of terrible monsters with strange and awesome powers, or NPCs who rely on skill and training to rival adventurers in combat. In either case, it is often the abilities and powers of these opponents that make each combat a memorable and exciting experience, and so each installment of Fearsome Foes presents a number of new opponents connected to a specific theme, each of which has fun and memorable abilities for GMs to unleash on unsuspecting players.


This installment provides six new types of spiders, which make suitable challenges for adventurers of any stripe. While all of these monsters are arachnid in shape, they employ a wide array of different tactics and abilities, and some are even intelligent enough to speak, but all possess the devious cunning and clever tactics one would expect from a monstrous spider. In this book you’ll find:


  • The leafcrown spider (level 3), part plant and part arachnid, these ambush predators can camouflage themselves in foliage, and leap down on prey from above, pinning them to the ground.
  • The carrier spider (level 10), an immense spider capable of mentally controlling lesser vermin. It carries thousands of smaller spiders with it wherever it goes, allowing it to unleash multiple spider swarms on its foes.
  • The webcaller spider (level 14), huge vermin whose webs emit a mystical aura that draw weak-minded prey directly towards them, and which can hide in other dimensions to ambush its prey.
  • And many more!

This is a good collection, and the creatures have a difficult feel about them which is great as a GM I know I can give players a challenge.

Original electronic
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.
