About the Race: Driders are dark elves, also known as drow, that have been transformed from the waist down so they have the body of a spider. The transformation is typically a punishment for offending their goddess, or failing a test of Lolth.
Only high-level priestesses in good standing with Lolth are able to initiate the transformation. This transformation is very painful, and lasts at least 12 hours. Due to bloating, driders appear sexless, though they are able to magically reproduce. They develop a poisonous bite. Their digestion changes and they must drink blood of living creatures for sustenance.
Race Description: the upper body is like that of a drow (see drow race for details) although bloated while their lower torso is that of a giant spider body like a centaur but with out the horse part.
