Mean-spirited, stupid, and hard to control, goblins take to war more like rioters than soldiers; spiders behave no better. Frequently, the spider simply does as it will, with a sputtering goblin merely along for the ride. Goblin spider-riders are an especially common where long winters and high populations of giant spiders create an easily collected stable of mounts for the local tribes each spring.
