Well I went and did it. I was going along on my descripition of the Drape-silk spider when it suddenly occurred to me that its venom could be harvested and used. My first thought was medicinal but then I remembered that alot of medicines have been corrupted into poisons. So I was wondering if anyone has started work on poisons and toxins used in our world.

Do you see the looking glass at the top right of the menu on the left? The search page. I hadn't the foggiest about poisons either but looked it up: I couldn't find a page with general poisons listed, so perhaps we could use an overview on this.

I did notice there were a lot of pages featuring the word poison, so a overview could well be the result of cataloging the already available information of various entries and gathering them in one entry.

Do note the information in the bestiary, spider overview. Most spiders don't have potent enough poison to seriously harm beings the size of humans and elves. Perhaps you shouldn't give your silk spider too many features because I came along a lot of poisonous ones already. Perhaps it could even outjump most spiders (if I remember correctly spiders in general can leap astonishingly far), your silkspider could be their champion, leadings its threat everywhere? Just my two sans worth...

Some great ideas there. I did keep the poison but I made it with non-lethal effects. I liked the jumping idea but spiders with good jumping abilities use them to hunt rather than build webs. But I do think we need a general list of poisons and an overview of their effects. It would be a handy reference and I will start compiling one later today.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.
