Quick Facts:Massive spiders
Native to: Jungles of Rhakros
Locations: Jungles of Rhakros
Appearance: This is a group of wildly different spiders. Every single breed found in the world has been collected carefully and grown to unnatural sizes. Their colouring doesn’t change, and terrors such as a ten foot Kidnapper Spider has been spotted, or a five foot Black Widow.
Habitat: The spiders retain most of their original characteristics, however they have all adapted to living in the jungle. It was rumoured they were created by Sintra to spread out and terrorize the dark places of the world, however due to the constant falling out between her and Lisirra they were drawn to the jungles of Rhakros. They still act and hunt the same way their smaller counterparts do, be it by trap, web or surprise.
Lifespan and Development: Identical to the original species, but all have their lifespans increased drastically, some claiming to have seen the same spider living for up to a hundred arcs.
Diet: Anything that moves in the forest is fair game. The large spiders manage their increased dietary requirements by feasting on the large flies and other bugs that live in the jungles around Rhakros.
Temperament: The spiders hold onto a thread of their original temperament, but Sintra's constant conflict with her sister has led to them acting far more volatile than they should be. Most of the species will actively hunt humans in the jungle, though all would eat any unfortunate souls caught in their traps.
Abilities: Sintra has twisted these creatures to terrorize her sister's city, but Lissira fought back with disease and pestilence. Their very blood carries innumerable diseases, though Lissira was unable to eradicate them despite her best efforts. Rumours abound that Sintra takes revenge against any that kill her pets, but the truth of the matter is far more likely due to the diseased blood. Monster hunters are not the cleanliest, and successfully fighting a Giant Spider usually ends with the victor covered in the fluids of the other.
Vials of the spider's blood are sold as a poison, though any accomplished poisoner scorns such inaccurate and blunt methods.
