Beneath a glacier in the high peaks of Upper Drongukk there once lived a spider goddess called Zard-kuh. According to legend, Zard-kuh became envious of a beautiful princess of Silaish Vo, who all of the princes of the Mountains of the Moon desired to marry. Zard-kuh knew that her arachnid form could never compete with the slender femininity of the princess, so she used her venom to paralyse those men who she could; she would then spirit them away to her mountain home and force them to mate with her before she ate them.

The children of Zard-kuh and these unfortunate men of ages past are called the Pajikot, and they are found throughout the northernmost places of Yoon-Suin. Typically, they appear as a giant spider with a legspan of 6'. On the tips of their legs are human hands, and their heads are those of men, with 8 eyes clustered in their foreheads. They are wretched things that cannot speak but can communicate a kind of mute desperation even as they devour all that they come across.

Pajikot can launch silk from their abdomens to bind opponents. Instead of making its bite attack, the Pajikot spreads silk over a target to bind it, successfully hitting on a roll against AC9. The target must make a STR check to break the strands, or else be paralysed.


  1. Very cool. Reminds me of Clark Ashton Smith's works.

  2. Cool! Sorry I missed this the first time around.

    I'm pulling together a free PDF zine. The first issue has a theme of Big Ass Scary Spiders. Can I use this? Links & credits will be given, of course.
