TRAITS

Spider-Infested: Spiders continually crawl out of corpsespun, swarm over them, and fall to the ground around the ’s feet. All creatures other than a corpsepinner or other corpsespun that are adjacent to a corpsespun at the end of the corpsespun’s turn take 1d4 poison damage from spider bites. This damage is cumulative from multiple adjacent corpsespun.


ECOLOGY

Environment: Astral

Organization: Troupe (4–9 plus 1 corpsespinner)

Corpsespun resemble zombies that are infested with spiders. Spiders crawl in and out of their bodies through their mouths, ears, nostrils, eye sockets, and wounds, and the creatures can vomit out a stream of spiders as an attack. They tend to be draped in webbing. Corpsepun follow the commands of the corpsespinner that created them, which they receive telepathically. If a corpsespinner is killed, its corpsespun minions continue carrying out their last instructions, and they fight to protect their master’s body or its home web; otherwise, they have little purpose and are not innately hostile without a corpsespinner telling them who to kill.
