Dragonspiders are the result of an insane attempt to crossbreed giant hunting spiders and red dragons.
Poison (Ex): A dragonspider has a poisonous bite. Fortitude DC 13 or take 1d4 Str damange both initial and secondary.
Web (Ex): Dragon spiders often wait in their webs or in trees, then lower themselves silently on silk strands and leap onto prey passing beneath. A single strand is strong enough to support the spider and one creature of the same size. The web is break DC 17 and has 6 hit points.
Breath Weapon (Ex): 30-foot cone of fire. 6d8 points of damage. Reflex save vs DC 13 for half. Useable once a day.
Tremorsense (Ex): A dragonspider can detect and pinpoint any creature or object within 60 feet in contact with the ground.
Skills: Dragonspiders have a +4 racial bonus on Hide, a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and Spot checks, and a +10 racial bonus on Jump checks. A dragonspider can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened. Dragonspiders use either their Strength
or Dexterity modifier for Climb checks, whichever is higher.
