Albino Cave & Giant Solifugids

Sick of spiders and poison?  That’s what solifugids are for.  To impress players with the difference, it may be worth having a few photos on hand—with an emphasis on their dry habitats and rending chelicerae.  Only sages (and GMs) will call them solifugids, though.  To fantasy natives they might be camel demons, cave killers, pincer beasts, sand spiders, or white scorpions.  (The Pathfinder Bestiary 2 lists even more options.)

A tribe of ettercaps has begun empathizing with giant solifugids.  This may mark the start of a new ettercap subculture, or even a new subspecies.  It has already marked the beginning of a many-limbed civil war.

Albino cave solifugids have taken up residents in the sewers of Clampsburg.  Strangely, the local bürgermeister refuses to do anything about it.

A decade-long drought fosters the growth of duneshaker solifugids.  Soon herd animals and men begin disappearing, while flights of dragonnes, robbed of their usual prey, are forced to find new hunting grounds.
