SPECIAL ABILITIES

Cold Bite (Su)

A cold mutated ogre spider’s bite replicates the effects of extreme cold (below –20° F) and deals 1d6 points of lethal cold damage (no save). Creatures that take damage from a cold mutated ogre spider’s bite must make a Fortitude save (DC 15, +1 per previous check) or take 1d4 points of nonlethal damage for a number of rounds equal to the spider’s Constitution modifier.

Cold Poison (Ex)

Bite—injury; save Fort DC 18; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d4 Str and 1d4 Dex; cure 1 save.

Cold Web (Su)

A cold mutated ogre spider’s web replicates the conditions of severe cold or exposure (below 0° F). A character must make a Fortitude save once every round (DC 15, +1 per previous check) for a number of rounds equal to the spider’s Constitution modifier, taking 1d6 points of nonlethal damage on each failed save. Creatures wearing a cold weather outfit need not make this check.

Any creature that takes nonlethal damage from cold or exposure is beset by frostbite or hypothermia (treat her as fatigued). These penalties end when the character recovers the nonlethal damage she took from the cold and exposure.

ECOLOGY

Environment cold, mountains, underground
Organization solitary
Treasure standard

These arachnids are fierce to behold and deadly combatants, feared for the cold and horrifying deaths experienced by their prey. Most often they are found in colder climates or deep underground, creating a lair somewhere that allows them to ambush creatures from above.

Cold mutated ogre spiders are 15 feet tall and across, weighing up to 1,500 pounds.
