These eight-legged monsters, which can grow larger than a tarutaru, can be dangerous to the unsuspecting adventurer. An adventurer can find himself slowed to a crawl, and then damaged with a high-powered slash from the spider's talon-like legs. If that wasn't enough, these spiders are armed with a damaging and long-lasting poison, which can kill the unprepared even after the spiders themselves are dispatched.
