SPECIAL ABILITIES

Poison (Su)

A Leng spider’s venom causes flesh to blister and rot away and the mind to experience vivid and horrific hallucinations—these visions cause the poisoned creature to react in an unpredictable manner, as if confused. The hallucination element of this poison is mind-affecting. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Bite—injury; save Fort DC 25; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d4 Con plus confusion for 1 round; cure 2 consecutive saves.

Web Weaponry (Ex)

A Leng spider is talented at using its webs to construct masterwork weapons. This technique of weapon creation allows the spider to effectively create a flail or bolas by attaching a heavy object such as a rock or chunk of metal to a cord of webbing. The spider attaches one end of this webbing to a leg and can then wield the weighted cord as a masterwork flail or a masterwork bolas. It can only wield one such weapon at a time—it must use its other legs to walk. If a Leng spider drops or loses a web weapon, it can create a new one as a full-round action, provided it has access to heavy-weight objects of the correct size (such as loose rocks or skulls).

ECOLOGY

Environment cold mountains
Organization solitary, pair, or nest (3–12)
Treasure standard

Leng spiders are intelligent, carnivorous spiders. An adult has a legspan of 20–30 feet or occasionally more, but smaller (younger) specimens are common. An adult weighs 1-3 tons. Since they never stop growing, a few are far larger.

Leng spiders are sly and design traps for their prey.

These can be elaborate and often involve treasure as bait. They are clever enough to let some adventurers live after finding the treasure, to entice further visitors to their mountain lairs. They delight in preying on humanoid egos and spring traps when a would-be treasure-seeker is most confident. Leng spiders thrive on being underestimated.

Leng spiders have a complex society and are readily able to wage war on those who infringe on their territory. Unless in their homes, they rarely fight to the death and will retreat if severely wounded.
