SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Ambusher. In the first round of a combat, the spider has advantage on attack rolls against any creature it has surprised.
  • Spider Climb. The spider can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.
  • Web Sense. While in contact with a web, the spider knows the exact location of any other creature in contact with the same web.
  • Web Walker. The spider ignores movement restrictions caused by webbing.

ACTIONS

  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) piercing damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 13). Additionally, the target must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, taking 24 (4d10) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even after regaining hit points, and is paralyzed while poisoned in this way.
