Dream Spider (Pathfinder Conversion)

Dream Spider
This child-sized spider’s blue-and-yellow-striped abdomen shimmers as it scuttles along a gossamer web. A drop of thick purple venom drips from its mandibles.

Dream Web (Ex) A dream spider’s webs are not as strong as similarly sized spiders, but do have strange effects. When touched, these iridescent webs cause strange hallucinations and creatures touching the web suffer 1 point of Wisdom damage (Fort DC 11 negates this loss). Every square of webs that are burned create a noxious gas that covers a 10-foot radius. Creatures in this area suffer 1d4 points of Wisdom damage (Fort DC 11 for half). This cloud remains only for 1 round. The save DC is constitution-based.
Poison (Ex) Bite – injury; save Fort DC 11; frequency 1/round for 2 rounds; effect 1d4 points of Wisdom damage; Cure 1 save

Dream spiders are native to the jungles of Golarion; however, thanks to their hallucinogenic venom, these spiders have found a home in drug dens all across the Inner Sea. The drug (detailed in Edge of Anarchy) causes its imbiber to enter a blissful stupor, where they see flashes of insight, madness, and ecstasy.
When pressed into combat, these creatures prefer to lure opponents into their webs. Often times an opponent becomes drugged and disabled, allowing the dream spider to devour its prey at its leisure. A dream spider, like most animals, will scamper away if threatened, however.
