About

Narleths are 8-foot-tall creatures that seem a horrible mixture of human and spider. Four muscular arms, each ending in a clawed hand, sprout from their impossibly broad, bony chests. Multiple tiny eyes glare from large, insectoid heads covered in bristly brown spines and sprouting vicious, fang-tipped mandibles.

Narleths delight in causing misery to any creature that stumbles into their clutches, immobilizing it in silken cocoons and slowly dissolving its innards with their venom. The narleth prefer to attack from ambush, concealing themselves in deep shadows or underneath piles of leaves or rubbish, then springing out and covering a victim with a spray of webbing before moving in for the capture.
