Random Encounters
Weaving a Web of Evil
By Dale Donovan

The spell weavers are enigmatic, alienlike monstrous humanoids recently discovered to inhabit many D&D game worlds. Their statistics, and what little is known about them, are detailed in the Monster Manual II. This Random Encounter series intends to shed more light on a particular group of these mysterious beings and allow DMs to easily and smoothly add them to their D&D campaigns.

The Organization

A nest of the bizarre, six-armed, spellcasting spell weavers exists in the warren of catacombs, sewers, crypts, or dungeons beneath one of the campaign's big cities. Find out more about it.

The Members

The spell weavers themselves number five, and they seldom leave the confines of the underground region they have claimed as their own. Check out the personalities of each spell weaver.

Adventure Hooks

This installment presents adventure hooks that DMs can use to introduce the spell weavers' Web into game campaigns.

Missing Merchandise

In this, the final installment of Weaving a Web of Evil, the owner of a magic shop and victim of the spell weavers' Web of thieves takes center stage, along with several of the items that have been stolen from the business.
