Alchemically Altered Deathjump Spider (4e Creature)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Alchemically Altered Deathjump Spiders are based on the article "Role vs. Roll: Alchemically Imbalanced" in Dragon Magazine #364. The Bile Spider King, Ziguarz, has experimented with foul alchemical concoctions, altering and mutating his tribe members, allied humanoids, and companion creatures. Alchemically Altered creatures will have poison, acid, or both added to their attacks, powers, and characteristics. Any additional Bile Spider Goblins or Alchemically Altered creatures mentioned in this entry will eventually be added to the wiki.

Alchemically Altered Deathjump Spider[edit]

These are Deathjump Spiders that have been mutated and transformed by foul goblin alchemies. They look like twisted, deformed and mutated versions of the standard 4E Deathjump Spider.
