When a humanoid is affected by the spawn disease, 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 around 5 times slower than humans, typically reaching adulthood around age 100. Drider spawn also transmit the spawn disease trough their bite. These creatures guard their young with their life.
Adventures typically choose to avoid drider spawn nests.
