The Savage Frontier
The Demon Queen of Spiders
Lolth (pronounced LOALTH), the Queen of Spiders or Queen of the Demonweb Pits, is a goddess of the drow, a chaotic evil deity who revels in chaos. She patterns her life and the lives of her worshipers on a regimen of chaotic acts and the veneration of spiders. The way that new-born spider broods tore each other apart to survive especially appealed to her. She promotes this by encouraging her worshipers to kill their rivals, thus ensuring that they are the strongest of the “brood”. Her love of chaos often made her appear mad but the wise see her as a calculating individual who is always several steps ahead of those who believe that they could anticipate her. She is cruel and domineering, forcing her will upon her followers and her enemies, a will that instructs the strong to crush the weak in the most torturous way imaginable.
Lolth has two forms, a humanoid form and a spider form.
