In the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, the Choldrith is an Aberration. They are the priests of the Chitine race, worshipping and harbouring the favour of their goddess Lolth.

Physical Description[edit]

Choldriths are more spider-like than common Chitines. They have the body of a sickly, white, bloated spider, but they have the head of a sly, fiendish humanoid, and the front two of their eight limbs are arms instead of legs. Like Chitines, their limbs have four joints (a normal humanoid, such as a human, has three; shoulder, elbow, wrist), allowing for more flex in movement and manipulation.

Environment[edit]

Choldriths dwell underground among normal Chitines.

Society[edit]

Choldriths, as said before, are the priests of the Chitines. Chitines view them as blessings from the spider goddess Lolth, whom the Choldriths worship and venerate.

Misc[edit]

Choldriths are Chaotic Evil in alignment.

Publications[edit]
