Spitting Spider

Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


This character is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these characters were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event.


Spitting spiders are neat little creatures that spit out a web which contains contact poison, thus immobilizing and slowly killing its prey.

This villain is one I designed (but I haven’t used him yet) to fight a PC who has shrinking. If the PC shrinks, the normal-sized spitting spiders will be around (and will seem to be gigantic foes).
