Exactly. Thanks for doing that, Calidore Chase. --Green Dragon 23:21, 30 August 2007 (MDT)

Size[edit]

you sould fix this all monsterous spiders can grow to clossal if they don't die before then just like dragons. --platdragon 7:17, 29 February 2008

Not really, no. A Spider's species deturmines how big it grows. Think of, say, a dwarf spider (whatever species. It doesn't matter). It can no more naturally grow as big as a Theraphosa Blondi (Body size 95mm) than I can grow 95 feet tall. Allowing a monstrous spider born from a species that only grows to medium is unrealistic. It also makes it difficult to calculate a fair price. --Sam Kay 09:41, 2 March 2008 (MST)
I was thinking the same thing as platdragon, honestly. Strictly speaking D&D doesn't really have different species of spiders, just web weavers and hunters. However I'd think that a magic spider (since, due to real world biology not working on that scale, that's more or less what they are) would grow as large as it's environment can support. Though I can see the balanced price being an issue. --Prak 10:59, 13 May 2009 (MDT)
Doesn't it? See drow of the underdark... Widowmaker spider, spitting spider, tangle terror? Plus, weavers and hunders are categories of spider- that doesn't mean there aren't species. Species would fall within the two categories. There aren't just one type of each- there would be thousands of species of each type. Just like with real-world spiders. Also see my Specific Monstrous Spiders Template.
Finally, if you wan't all spiders to grow to colossal size first, you can simply use the colossal size eggs. However, if I changed it as you suggest, it would be pigeonholed into your assumptions of how monstrous spiders grow. --Sam Kay 06:32, 14 May 2009 (MDT)
