This figure, steps forward from the shadows, the clank of his armor muffled by the shroud of cobwebs that covers him—webs alive with the movement of tiny vermin.

Every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, a Corpsespun Creature can spray a hail of spiders from its mouth in a 20-foot cone. Each creature in the area takes 3d6 points of swarm damage (DC 10 + 1/2 HD + Cha modifier Reflex save for half) and is distracted (DC 10 + 1/2 HD + Cha modifier Fortitude save negates). The spiders quickly spread across the opponent’s body in the same round they contact it and
automatically bite, delivering a highly debilitating poison. The spiders cause swarm damage and distraction each round for 1d4 rounds, at which point they fall off and die. The save DCs are Charisma-based.
Whenever a corpsespun successfully hits an opponent with a natural attack, or whenever the corpsespun is successfully hit with a natural attack or unarmed strike, a number of spiders are automatically transferred to the opponent. The spiders quickly spread and swarm over the opponent (as detailed in the spider spray ability). These spiders fall off and die after 1 round.
