The Great Spider God, or simply the Spider God, is an immense Godbeast worshipped as an aspect of Gorkamorka by the Spiderfang Grots.[1a]


Religion

The Spiderfang Grots are capable of performing rituals that can purify a land of Chaos taint using the venom of the Spider God, such as when they purified the Rotten Hold, the Dreadhold of Lord Efulgus, and by extension the surrounding Panmyrrian Jungles of Ghyran.[1c]

Grot Shamans are the undisputed rulers of the Stalktribes and Grot Nests of the Spiderfang Grots, for it is said that the divine venom of the Great Spider God flows through their veins.[1d]

Skitterstrand Arachnaroks are worshipped and venerated bythe Spiderfang Grots. The Grimscuttle tribes of Neferatia, who are renowned for being particularly zealous in their worship of the Spider God, each venerate a different Skitterstrand Arachnarok as their personal tribal demigod.[1e]

The Drizzledeff tribe of the jungles of Humidia daub themselves in riotously colored warpaint, made from the vivid flora of the region. Their reasoning for doing this is two-fold, for not only does the warpaint serve as a camouflage it also serves as a way of venerating the Spider God and, at least in their belief, bringing them closer to their god.[1e]

Myths

It is said that the Great Spider God became an aspect of Gorkamorka when it bit the destructive god's foot and was infused with divine energy.[1a]
