Spiders range from small, passive creatures to large, aggressive ones. They vary somewhat in appearance: from brown, black, grey, and blue spiders to spiders with red markings. They can be found in a variety of places, such as in their webs, in caves, or in the forest.

Small, passive spiders yield crawlers when slain. Both types can drop spider eggs, which serve as an alchemical reagent.
