The mammoth arachnid towers over its prey, fangs dripping poison mixed with fresh blood from its last kill shortly ago. Its entire body is draped with long, coal black hair, with the exception of a small patch on the very rear tip of its bulbous abdomen. This contains the spinnerets it uses to effectively web its prey before injecting the victim with a caustic poison, resulting in slow disintegration from the inside. The arachnid's eight crimson eyes dart about, making certain no prey, no matter how small, escapes.

Hunting strategies

Mammoth arachnids are no longer immune to punctures as they once were, but may or may not be puncture resistant.

The mammoth arachnid's webbing combat maneuver can make it particularly fearsome if you have poor Dodging, no Mobility / Blurs, or if you are encumbered. Depending on the amount of webbings that strike you, it can mummify you partially, completely, or even knock you to the ground and damage one of your legs or hands.

Mammoth arachnids have high perception, making it difficult to hide and stay hidden. A blinding strike to the eye or strong shot to the head can quickly diminish this perception, making hiding much easier. They do not have necks or chest, for purposes of aiming.

Other information

Mammoth arachnids cannot be stunned. They also cannot be swept or subdued.

Although they do not wear physical armor, their exoskeleton provides protection equivalent to brigandine armor AsG 12. Since there is no actual armor worn the CvA value is +25.
