Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: 30 gp for +1d4 damage, +2 attack and High Crit to the spider rider's [B] damage is not balanced: this is better than a magic weapon at ten times the cost.

A Fang weapon is a metal shell (in a spider fang shape) with protruding blades that Drow often purchase to help their "pets" (monstrous Spiders) cause more harm with their bite attacks. They are purchased as a pair, and are generally strapped to the fangs of a monstrous spider (usually one that serves as a guardian) and fastened on with straps. The fang weapon has a hole at its point where the fangs protrude, and so bite attacks from spiders with fang weapons still deal poison damage. A spider is automatically proficient with fang weapons.
In order to attach a fang weapon to a spider's fangs, you must pass a nature skill check to handle animal (DC 20), or else the spider will attack. If you are a spider rider, attaching fang weapons to you spider mount does not require a skill check. The check must be retaken to remove fang weapons, and the check is automatically passed when removing fang weapons from a dead spider. Fang weapons can be enchanted in the same way that a normal weapon can.
