Swarmhorde spiders were a species of giant spiders that inhabited the Underdark and its entrance in the King's Forest of Cormyr.[1]

Description[]

Swarmhorde spiders were a relatively small variety of giant spider with brown exoskeletons that resembled dead forest leaves. They were small and slow but, as the name suggests, swarmhorde spiders hunted in overwhelming swarms.[1]

Combat[]

The spiders tracked their victims via tremorsense and attacked their prey by biting them and injecting them with poison.[1]

History[]

In the late 15th century DR, a number of swarmhorde spiders were found infesting the King's Forest during the Darkening and found hunting in the Underdark areas underneath the forest, as well as within the Haunted Halls.[1]
