Updating an old favorite (new monster for Delxue Ruins & Ronin)

Today I am dusting off the old monster, Jorogumo. This was my favorite monster from the first version of Ruins & Ronin and I still have a strong attachment to her (pun intended). This is the spider demon, and this time around I have made her more powerful (on par with a hill giant in regards to design) and allowed her web attacks in both spider or human form. Deadly.

Jorogumo are large, ancient spiders than can take the shape of a beautiful woman. They typically make their homes  in deep pools or near waterfalls (though they are not confined to water). These shape-changers use entangling webs to drag victims into their underwater lairs. A Jorogumo’s web attacks are treated as missile weapons with a range of 30ft; anyone hit by a web must make a saving throw vs. dragon breath, to avoid becoming stuck. Once a victim is entangled, the Jorogumo drags it 5ft per round (the victim can make a saving throw each round to break free). The web can be attacked as an object with an AC 6 and 4 hps – but not by the entangled victim.

In the form of a woman, the Jorogumo can cast Charm Person twice a day.
