Notes Giant spiders are huge predatory arachnids; the largest variety of eight-legged web-spinners. Major Spiders are 11'-20' wide monstrosities. All Great Spiders feed on flesh and blood. They can be encountered in almost every clime. The origin of these creatures is certainly not a natural one. Despite their sizes, all types of creatures are related, the smaller versions probably being some sort of evil spawn of the Major Great Spiders, a bane upon the earth if there ever was one. Major Spiders are loners. but occasionally, a Major Spider will have some of the smaller specimens around as servants or guards. Even more rarely, they will have Orcs, Ogres or even Demon servants. Major Spiders are nocturnal. Major individuals of this race are often ascribed to be Demons (at least in part). Clearly enchanted, they are exceptionally large and are capable of casting spells. They augment their already considerable hunting skills and superb senses of smell and hearing with knowledge of the the following spells(They cast as 5th level magic users): Detect Magic, Know Languages, Identify Read Magic, Ventriloquism, Know Passions, Detect Good, Detect Invisibility, Locate Object, Tongues, Read Thoughts, Wizard Sight, True Seeing, Charm Being, Friendship, Hypnotism, Sleep, Hold Person, Slow, Suggestion, Charm Monster, Confusion, Fear, Phantasmal Terror, Word of Power - Blind, Mass Charm ,Word of Power - Kill Hunting as nocturnal loners, they live in remote regions, setting long-lived traps in caves and well-defined channels. Their sensitivity to subtle changes in pressures on the nearby ground (range 100') and along their two to three hundred foot wide webs is astounding.
