I have dwelt among spiders, for they are my kin.

Prerequisite: Arachnomancer class

As a spiderkin, you have true kinship with spiders. Gifted with an affinity with spiders far greater than that of other arachnomancers, you have dwelt in the deepest depths of spider colonies, and now you have kinship far greater than other arachnomancers could possibly imagine.
