Tales of Tolgard
A hook spider is a monstrous spider who has evolved in the Lower Planes. These magical beasts look like a yellow-red spider with its two forelegs equipped with hooked claws which are used for holding prey. It often uses traps and stealth via a chameleon power to surprise its prey. A hook spider can communicate via telepathy, but it rarely does so. It is inclined to honor contracts, but it is very focused on immediate gain and not long-term benefits.
