Ecology: Leng spiders inhabit the mountains and valleys of the Plateau of Leng in Earth's Dreamlands. They once controlled the entire plateau, until forced back into the southern valleys after years of warfare with the humanoid Men of Leng. Spinning huge webs, some of which reach from mountain top to mountain top, they feed on shantanks, vultures, yaks, and anything else that makes the fatal mistake of blundering into their webs.

Personality/Motivation: Highly intelligent, the spiders of Leng tend to be solitary creatures, and will prey on their own kind if the situation warrants. They tend to look on all other beings as a source of food, and can only be dealt with from a position of strength.

Powers/Tactics: A Leng spider normally attacks with a highly venomous bite, wrapping up any prey with its webbing to be fed on at its leisure. The spider may also hurl a mass of webbing, trapping a target long enough to be either wrapped in stronger bonds or bitten to death. It is possible for a Leng spider to know certain spells of Dreamlands magic, usually ones dealing with finding and subduing prey.

Appearance: A small Leng spider is the size of a Shetland pony. A large one can mass nearly 6,000 kg. They have bloated purple bodies, with black legs and fangs.

Designer's Notes: Leng spiders are creatures of the Cthulhu/Dreamlands Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. This design was based upon the Leng spider presented in the 5th Edition of Call Of Cthulhu and The Complete Dreamlands. Leng spiders can range in size from Human sized (at birth) to Huge (or even lager!). Game Masters may wish to add abilities from the Giant Spider character sheet on page 91 of the HERO System Bestiary.
