Old Forest Spider Tactics[edit]

These spiders generally fight in small groups, trapping their pray in the denser parts of the forest. Old Forest Spiders take a sophisticated approach to fighting, assigning different designations for different members of their groups.

Old Forest Spider Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful nature check.

DC Nature 10: The spiders tactics are surprisingly sophisticated, despite their low intellects.

DC Nature 17: The spiders seem to emanate from an unknown source near the heart of forest.

DC Nature 21: Inability to understand advanced logic and reasoning would suggest that these monsters are gaining their knowledge and orders from elsewhere.
