6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Basilisk Games has released its fourth creature feature, showcasing one frightening denizen of the world of Eschalon: Book II. Each week in October the company has unveiled a new creature, offering both concept artwork and a detailed description. The fourth creature showcased is the Brimstone Spider, a terrifying arachnid which uses flaming webbing to liquify the its prey.

The Brimstone Spider is a fierce predator that inhabits the desert and volcanic regions in the southern hemisphere of Eschalon. A noted feature of the Brimstone Spider is that since their bite lacks a venomous injection, the instead "flash cook" their prey in a sticky, burning mass of webbing. The quick, intense heat melts down body fat and releases fluids from the organs of their victim, which the spider can then drink.

Arachnids are fairly common across Eschalon and come in a wide variety of appearances and abilities. Every spider should be treated with caution as none are considered "safe". The toxicity of spider bites vary from species to species and may produce effects such as poisoning, paralysis or even instant death. Before you engage any spider in combat, ensure your resistance levels (elements, toxins, disease) are as high as possible
