Spiders can be found in almost most any dark, damp space in
Caelereth. They tend
to be an earthy colour, and are not very big. The biggest spider seen
so far was 2 and
a half palmspans. They are not very strong, but will defend themselves with a
ferocity that will frighten away many predators.
Spider is a rare
Spider found only in the Forest of Souls located on the east side of the big
isle in the R'unorian Chain and in certain
remote areas of the Ráhaz-Dáth Desert.
Though one of the smallest spiders found in the whole of
Caelereth, the Crystal Spider is nonetheless
the most dangerous species. This is due to their fast-acting venom that
paralyzes their prey almost instantaneously.
Spiders are pretty large arachnids, nearly half a
palmspan or more in size.
Their fuzzy bodies are a mottled mix of
ithild and barad dusk. They
live deep in the heavy woods across southern
Sarvonia. Drap-Silk Spiders are known for producing a web that is useful as
a bandage, and their venom is serves as well for numbing pain.
and widely detested inhabitant of bedrooms and inns throughout
Santharia, Dreamlice are more than just a
ubiquitous and adaptable pest. Very rarely, if an infestation goes unchecked,
something changes in the nature of these parasites – instead of sipping blood
while their victims sleep, and then hiding away, they latch on and stay put, and
the victim begins to change. Poorly understood and reviled by all races,
Dreamlice are, regrettably, accepted as a fact of life in certain areas.
Driftspider is one of the more interesting insects of
Nybelmar. Found only in the
Drifting Woods area, these small
creatures are perfectly comfortable with spending their entire lifetime on the
water surfaces there, by constructing
ingenious webs that serve as their private island homes.
are secretive, nocturnal arachnids which can be spotted in lands of arid
climate, especially at deserts like the Santharian
Ráhaz-Dáth or at the
continent of Aeruillin. Scorpions are very poisonous creatures, equipped with a
deadly stinger at the end of its tail. The potent stinger is only used when
hunting or whenever the Scorpion feels cornered. At daylight or when
encountering a larger foe, they retreat into burrows or beneath rocks.
Spider (also called Shen'rásh in
Styrásh, meaning "new spider," though the origin of this name is unknown) is
a petite little spider living throughout most of
Sarvonia. While male and female Shenora
Spider doubtless exist, the creature is most often referred to and thought of as
female, due in part to its muliebrity and in part to the myth associated with
it. For this reason, this entry will refer to the spider as a female.
The Spiderturtle, a small
eightlegged crustacean, about a
palmspan across, and is known by various names. Many refer to it also as
"Spiddleshell" or "Spiddle". To the
Kuglimz it is known as "Ho'vla'pyr" (lit. "armour
water animal"). The
elves refer to it as "Már'thuoc" (lit. "water
shell") and the merfolk callsit "Kinikraah",
which translates to something like "alcohol crab". The
mer have been known to suffer intoxication
after digesting this turtle, giving it its unique
mermish name. This crustacean
weighs only about a hafeb
and lives in warm waters like the Sea of
Tears or the Aelyvian Sea.
Gahosén'ythréf, nicknamed "Tortua Scorpion" by researchers, is found only in the
Ráhaz-Dáth desert in the far south of
Sarvonia. Its characteristic flat
shell-covered body and duel stinging tails makes it ummistakable from its more
common world cousins, although much of the basics remain similar. The name
derives from the Styrásh word
"Gahosén", meaning hard, and the word Ythréf, meaning poison. This is owed to
its incredibly hard central shell, and of course its typical poison sting.
Cob, often simply referred to as Cob only, is a fairly large
spider with thick, snow-white fur that lives in the
Icelands and various parts of Northern
Sarvonia. Its double, sometimes triple and quadruple, fanged bite is
exceedingly painful though not fatal, and is largely avoided by intelligent
life. Cobs can live up to 50 years, when kept as a domestic pet, and are a
popular beast to own among soothsayers,
Rovers, and traveling
