Lolth, the Spider Queen is the evil god of deceit, shadows, and spiders. She is known for weaving a complicated web of schemes and treachery through her worshipers, deceiving allies and enemies alike to gain power. Her worship is entwined with the drow society. She holds a searing grudge against the Stormlord after he impaled her against a cliffside during the Calamity. The Spider Queen and Gruumsh have similar hatred for Corellon whom she claims drove her children below the earth and she often manipulates the Ruiner’s followers into attacking her enemies. The only being the Spider Queen truly fears is the Chained Oblivion.


In the icons and idols of dark elf society she is depicted as a darkly alluring woman of dark purple skin and silver hair, with a lower body of a terrifying monstrous spider.

Commandments of the Spider Queen

Commandments of the Spider Queen

  • It is better to be loved than feared, but you may certainly try to be both.

  • Misdirection, slander, and shadowed steps have more function than direct conflict.

  • Death to the elves who live under the sun. Death to all their allies!

During a brief era of unified interests, the Spider Queen had an arrangement with Asmodeus. Jourrael was exalted as her chosen assassin.[3]
