Spiders are predatory, venomous arachnids, widely feared by people. In this game, the only spider is Shelob. Each Shelob card is a Shadow Gollum culture minion with 8 strength, 8 vitality, home site 8, and Twilight cost 6 (which is usually 8, since she is roaming for most of the game).
Spiders also feature prominently in the Hobbit Draft Game fan sets, as their own swarm-based culture.
