Yorgrix, Weaver of the Poison Web Waiting obscenely in the enveloping darkness, Yorgrix sits in its web of perpetual hunger and hatred.
For centuries this demonweb spider was the personal pet of a drow matron, securing her standing in drow society and in the eightfold eyes of Lolth. In the end, the matron’s hubris led to her downfall. Arrogantly she flaunted her sorcery while Yorgrix waited in the darkness, watching. Its demonic nature allowed it to master the lethal subtleties of dark pact magic, and eventually the desire for power overcame it. In a night of slaughter that left no survivors, the spider gorged itself on all living creatures within the subterranean city. Swollen from ingesting its victims, Yorgrix grew too corpulent to pass through the city’s gates, so it took up residence. Webs now drape every inch of the drow city, and suspended at the cavern’s center is Yorgrix, forever waiting silently in demonic hunger. The spider has now become more like a dread spirit than a corporeal being, its city a place of mystery and death.
