This monster is for the U.S. game system.
It figure came out of a Games Workshop box. it says FT01 on the front if that helps. The batch number on the back was 758500 for this box. Product code: 99 12 02 99 003. Component Code: 99 28 02 99 001.
Special rules/ explination:
The Spider has a high movement (10) because it is quick and small. It has (1) attack because it is weak. It has a (0) defense because of its strong special ability. Body and Mind points are low because of the status of a tiny creature.
Unblockable when attacking, unless a black shield is rolled: This ability makes the spider worth something. When it is the Spider's attack phase, the hero rolls a white die. If a black shield is not rolled, the spider hits, giving them a poison counter. (The spider works best if it is behind other creatures when a hero enters the room, so it actually has a chance to attack.)
Poisonous: When a monster is "poisonous" it does poison damage instead of regular damage (which is deducted from your body points.) Poison delivered one at a time by a monster... when a hero has 4 poison counters they die. (anti-poison potions may be made at zargons discretion for quests. Some potions of this type will replenish body points and poison status, some just poison or a portion of the poison.)
