A Tale of the Realms
Spiderhaunt Wood was a forest on the southwestern edge of Shadowdale in the Dalelands. The Northride ran just south of the woods, and the Tethyamar Trail ran the whole eastern border of the wood. A single trail, the Arachnid Pathway, led from the Tethyamar Trail into the heart of the wood.
The Spiderhaunt Wood was, of course, inhabited by spiders of all known types, as well as ettercaps and chitines.
Spellcasters of all types came to the Spiderhaunt Woods to gather spider-related spell components.
