1 Poison (Ex): Each claw of a spider thief is loaded with three doses of a sleeping poison (injury, Fort DC 11, initial sleep 1d4 minutes, secondary none). If a spider thief wishes to, it can throw its claws like a syringe up with a five foot range increment. It takes a full round action for the spider thief to recover and reattach its claw.

2 Skills: A spider thief uses its Dexterity modifier for Climb checks instead of its Strength modifier. A spider thief can climb ropes, can use its Climb skill to scuttle along a ceiling. It gains a +8 racial bonus to Climb checks. It can use its claws to “ride” a mount by spurring it in the appropriate direction with sharp claw jabs (opposed Spot check vs. its Hide check required to notice it as a rider).

The Spider Thief appears to be a long-lost bit of Gnossian technology. Our heroes discovered the construct lying on a workbench in a maintenance room deep in the Riverbend Ruins.

Kit brought the construct out of the ruin, along with the instruction manual, some spare parts and a maintenance log. She gave all of these to Ipswitch Cogsworth in the hopes that he could get the robot running again, which he did.

Unfortunately, it appears that the SB-70 retrieval system is not all that it cracked up to be. The construct exhibits a skewed sense of value, being very easily distracted by shiny objects regardless of their monetary worth. It also seems compulsively drawn to such objects and must be placated with a shiny trinket in order to prevent it from stealing all that glitters.
