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.


Choldriths dwell underground among normal Chitines.


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.


Choldriths are Chaotic Evil in alignment.


5th edition: Choldrith were described in Volo's Guide to Monsters
3rd Edition: Monsters of Faerûn.
They originally appeared, however, in books from earlier editions, such as the Monstrous Compendium Annual 1, and the second edition Forgotten Realms campaign setting.
