As an action, the restrained target can make a DC 14 Strength check, bursting the webbing on a success. The webbing can also be attacked and destroyed (AC 13; 17 hit points; vulnerability to fire damage; immunity to bludgeoning, poison, and psychic damage).


When a Humanoid is affected by Spawn, they transform into a powerful creature, a Drider Spawn. These creatures are part Drider, part vampire, and part dragon. All Drider Spawn are female, but the are known to give birth to at least 48 young per day. Despite this mass reproduction, Drider Spawn mature 5 times slower than humans. Drider spawn also transmit Spawn trough their bite. These creatures guard their young with their life. It is always best to avoid Drider Spawn nests. However, if you are brave/crazy enough to take one on, upon their defeat you will be rewarded with the youngest Drider spawn in the nest. The young spawn will see you as a parent, not as a master. REMEMBER THIS! You will only have to worry about one Drider Spawn per raid.
