A dark hooded figure appears suddenly behind the two guards twin daggers flashing in the dark. Two bodies slumb to the floor and the figure disappears once more. An elf watches as a bolt of lightning flashes towards her, at the last minute she vanishes as the bolt passes through the space she once occupied. Grinning as she takes form behind the wizard, she slides her rapier between his ribs. A half-orc sits on top of a roof gazing down at the crowd below, he sees his target and warps behind him, the half-orc strikes quickly and his target disappears, reappearing moments later on fire, screaming about deamons.
The warp spider uses her mobility and abilities to avoid damage and hurt enemies where they are most vulnerable. They provide good utility with there ability to strike behind enemy lines, taking out spell casters and archest that would normally be hard to get to.
The warp spider is a terrifying warrior who uses her knowledge of the ethereal plane to warp behind her enemies to deal devastating sneak attacks. Some warp spiders are born with innate power that manifests during adolescence while others train under another warp spider. As they hone their skills they gain a closer connection to both the ethereal plane and the connections between the planes of existence. Eventually they are able to slip between the gaps in the planes at will.
