Quiver of Spiderkind Aura moderate conjuration; CL 8th
Slot —; Price 32,000 gp; Weight 2 lbs.
Description This chitinous quiver resembles an elongated spider’s abdomen, and comfortably holds 20 arrows. When placed on the back, thin segmented legs wrap around the wearer to hold it in place. Pedipalps near the quiver’s opening can be commanded to secure a thick strand of spider silk to the end of a drawn arrow 20 times per day. The unnaturally high tensile strength of spider’s thread allows the projectile to be used like a lightweight harpoon. A ranged attack made with the arrow on a target within 50 feet temporarily grants the Grapple special ability (Ultimate Combat) to the firing weapon. When securely anchored, the spider silk can also be used for climbing. The silk can support 500 lbs of weight before snapping. Every 50 feet of silk used for climbing consumes a single daily use of the item’s power.
Construction Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Web; Cost 16,000 gp
