Blue bell spiders are the female version of the bell spider. They are about 3’ tall and weigh 250 pounds. They have a blue head and legs. Their body is coated with a thin layer of silver that contains 1000 silver pieces worth of the precious metal.

They live deep beneath the earth in colonies with other bell spiders (pink and blue). They do not build webs. There are about 8 pink bell spiders for every 1 blue bell spider.

COMBAT: Blue bell spiders will attack anyone who threatens their colony. Otherwise, they are not particularly aggressive.

SONIC BELL ATTACK: The blue bell spider has an organ inside her abdomen that allows her to strike the inside of her shell, creating a deafening bell sound, once per day. All non-bell spiders in a 60’ radius takes 3d6 of damage (half damage if the victim makes a successful saving throw). If the victim fails their saving throw, they are stunned for one round. The bell also serves to summon other bell spiders within range of the sound.

Pink bell spiders are the male version of the bell spider. They are about 2’ tall, weigh 80-120 pounds, and have very large mandibles. They are bright pink and glow in the dark.  They live deep beneath in colonies with other bell spiders (pink and blue). They do not build webs.

COMBAT: Pink bell spiders are aggressive in combat when their colony is threatened. They hunt as a pack and seek to use their speed to ambush prey.

INTOXICATING VENOM: When a pink spider successfully strikes its victim, the victim must make a saving throw or be intoxicated by the spider’s venom. Intoxication causes the opponent to have a -2 penalty to their attack roll, as well as a -1 penalty to any initiative roll. The intoxication lasts for 2d6 rounds.

ENHANCED INITIATIVE: Pink bell spiders are very quick and gain a +1 bonus to their initiative roll.
