You are exploring a mountain and come upon a wide open cavern. From the ceiling descends a creature far larger than anything you have ever encountered. It stands towering over you bipedal. It has six arms, eight eyes, two tails, and the legs it stands on. The creatures scales are green but covered in a strange black hair. As you step back in fear you slip and touch some webbing covering the cave, and upon doing so find it is like acid, the webbing this thing spins is corrosive. The eight gleaming eyes assess you easily and it bellows in a low voice "Leave, yet you become my lunch." You wisely sprint away.

It stands bipedal, but can easily move on all eight limbs. It has six, three clawed hands, along with a thin black fur covering its body, and a pair of wings. It has eight gleaming green eyes, and has two tails.

Combat[edit]

Green spider dragons initiate fights with little or no provocation, picking on creatures of any size. If the target is intriguing or seems formidable, the dragon stalks the creature to determine the best time to strike and the most appropriate tactics to use or how to entrap it in its web traps. If the target appears weak, the dragon makes its presence known quickly—it enjoys evoking terror. Sometimes the dragon elects to control a humanoid creature through intimidation and suggestion. Green spider dragons especially like to question adventurers to learn more about their society and abilities, what is going on in the countryside, and if there is treasure nearby

Breath weapon

A green spider dragon has one type of breath weapon, a cone of corrosive (acid) gas

Water Breathing

A green spider dragon can breathe underwater indefinitely and can freely use its breath weapon, spells, and other abilities while submerged.

Tremorsense

A green spider dragon can detect and pinpoint any creature or object within 60 feet in contact with the ground, or within any range in contact with the green spider dragons' webs.

Poison

A green spider dragon has a poisonous bite. The details vary by the spider’s size, as shown on the table below. The save DCs are Constitution-based. The indicated damage is initial and secondary damage.

Size Fort DC Damage

Small 10 1d3 Str

Medium 12 1d4 Str

Large 13 1d6 Str

Huge 16 1d8 Str

Gargantuan 20 2d6 Str

Green spider dragons often wait in their webs or in caves, then lower themselves on strands and leap onto prey passing beneath. A single strand is strong enough to support the spider dragon and one creature of the same size. Web-spinners can throw a web eight times per day. This is similar to an attack with a net but has a maximum range of 50 feet, with a range increment of 10 feet, and is effective against targets up to one size category larger than the spider dragon. An entangled creature takes acid damage equal to the spider dragons breath weapon, but can escape with a successful Escape Artist check or burst it with a Strength check. Both are standard actions whose DCs are given in the table below. The check DCs are Constitution-based, and the Strength check DC includes a +4 racial bonus. Web-spinners often create sheets of sticky webbing from 5 to 60 feet square, depending on the size of the spider dragon. They usually position these sheets to snare flying creatures but can also try to trap prey on the ground. Approaching creatures must succeed on a DC 20 Spot check to notice a web; otherwise they stumble into it and become trapped as though by a successful web attack and begin taking damage accordingly. Attempts to escape or burst the webbing gain a +5 bonus if the trapped creature has something to walk on or grab while pulling free. Each 5-foot section has the hit points given on the table, and sheet webs have damage reduction 5/—. A dragon spider can move across its own web at its climb speed and can pinpoint the location of any creature touching its web.
