Hit: 12 (2d8 + 3) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw, taking 28 (8d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

About

Created in the bowels of the underworld, the extremely rare demon spider is one of the largest varieties of its kind. Although not actually a demon, the creature has been given its name by survivors because of its appearance and especially malevolent attitude; it not only kills to feed itself, it enjoys the hunt and subsequent torture of its victim.
