Special Abilities

Entrap (Ex) A mythic black widow can entrap a creature it bites as a swift action. A creature already entangled becomes helpless on a failed save. The save DC includes the bonus from the spider’s strong webs ability.

Poison (Ex) Bite—injury; save Fort DC 17; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d3 Con and staggered; cure 2 saves. The save DC is Constitution-based and has a +2 racial bonus.

Silent Creeper (Ex) A mythic black widow is treated as if it had ranks in Stealth equal to its Hit Dice, with Stealth as a class skill. If the spider expends one use of its mythic power, it can make a Stealth check even when directly observed, as long as there is cover or concealment within 10 feet. When a mythic black widow uses a mythic surge to increase the result of a Stealth check, the result of the surge die is maximized.

Strong Webs (Ex) A black widow’s webs (including its entrap ability) gain a +4 bonus to the DC to break or escape.
