Arachnicid Beast[edit]

Those affected with type 2 Arachnomania will turn into an Arachnicid Beast. They will become extremely violent and may take on some spider-like behaviors.


Only beasts and monstrosities large or smaller who have fully gone through the transformation caused by type 2 Arachnomania can become Arachnicid Beasts

Bite.Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: (1d8 + 3) piercing damage plus (2d8)poison damage. The target must make a dc on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even after regaining hit points, and is paralyzed while poisoned in this way

Web (recharge 5-6). Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 30/60 ft., one creature. The target is restrained by webbing As an action, the restrained target can make a DC 12 Strength check, bursting the webbing on a success. The webbing can also be attacked and destroyed (AC 10; hp 5; vulnerability to fire damage; immunity to bludgeoning, poison, and psychic damage)
