Courtyard > Enemies > Spiders

Greetings, apprentice. Come to see our little rogue's gallery, have you? Yes. Well, after all - why not? It's important to know about those that might harm you, and there are certainly enough individuals in the City who would wish to harm us. The ones who don't know about us see as a threat, and the ones that do know of our existence - well, sometimes I think they almost see us as trophies. At any rate, best you'd learn their weaknesses before they find yours.


Classification: Animal

Location(s): varies

Variations: Cave, Tunnel, Chaos

Known Weaknesses: sword, dagger, blackjack, arrows, mines, gas


One of the more resilient pests of the City, spiders can be found in many cellars, caves, or abandoned buildings. These eight-legged creatures can usually be found in two common varieties, with a third seen during the Dark Project incident.

Variation: Cave Spider

The common cave spider can be found in many parts of the City - from abandoned buildings and cellars to the tunnels beneath it. These small white arachnids are usually seen in hives of two or three. Their bites cause little damage, but they can move quickly and possess the ability to jump quite high. A quick swipe of the blade is usually enough to kill a single cave spider.

Variation: Tunnel Spider

The larger tunnel spider is not seen as often as its smaller cousin. These spiders dwell primarily in the many tunnels and caves below the City, although they have been seen on the surface as well. Tunnel spiders are nearly the size of a canine and are colored a greenish-brown. Although not as fast as the cave spider, tunnel spiders can also move fairly quickly and are capable of killing a man in only a few bites. A single arrow to the abdomen should be sufficient to kill a tunnel spider.

Variation: Chaos Spider

The Chaos Spider has only been seen once - during the Dark Project incident. This large red spider can spit webbing at targets, enmeshing them in silk and paralyzing them while it attacks. They should not be a threat any longer, but rumors place a few still at large within the City. A well-placed arrow to the abdomen should be enough to kill a chaos spider.


Spiders can be killed with blade or arrow and can be knocked unconcious with gas. Fire and explosive force will also kill them, of course, but such a method is considered extreme by many. A single well-placed arrow to the abdomen should be enough to kill a tunnel or chaos spider, although an alerted one will require more. Cave spiders can be killed by a single swipe of the blade or a single arrow.

Threat Assessment:

Spiders are a common sight within the City, but should not pose a significant danger to the alert Keeper. Spiders are given a medium threat assessment.
