Spider-Person Races

Have you always wanted to play Spiderman in D&D, but never known how? this Supplement introduces a Spider-Person Race for D&D 5e. Enjoy!

The First Step

The first step is picking the Race of Spider-Person you want to be, and it all depends on the backstory of your character and what way they got their powers.

Any of these races can stack with a race that already exist

The Races

There are three Races in this Supplement

  • Base Spider-person | These are the standard Spider-Men, Spider Sense, enhanced strength, reflexes, and dexterity, as well as perception

  • Altered Spider Spider-Person | These Spider-People are equivilent to Miles Morales, They have All the standard spider powers except a few minor changes. these changes are that they have the ability to turn invisible and shock on touch (see Pg. 3 Altered Spider-Person) and they have a less effective spider sense

  • Altered DNA Spider-Person | These specific Spider-People don't have access to the Spider Sense Ability, but due to their lack of it, they gain a bonus to constitution and other stats, as well as access to all other normal Spider-Person abilities

Getting Started

To get started creating a Spider-Person, first you go about creating a normal character. once done, pick a Spider-Person Race. Your Spider-Person Race depends completely on how you build your backstory. maybe you accidentally get mixed up in a Wizard's experiment and get your genes spliced with a Spider, your Subclass would be an Altered DNA Spider-Person. There are many different ways to figure out your backstory, it's up to you to pick

The Venom Symbiote

The Venom Sybiote, one of the Spider-People's most dangerous enemies, this black organic biomass parasite requires a host to survive, and is obsessed with making the resident Spider-Person exactly that. it can amplify it's host's physical ability greatly, as well as regenerate entire bodyparts and replicate most of the Spider-Person's abilities. The Venom symbiote is hard to control, but it is possible. it's one weakness is noise and electricity. it has a taste for a special protien in the human brain matter, but it just so happens that Chocolate has that very same protien. If you ever encounter this being, either figure out how to work with it, find a way to get rid of it, or die trying.
