Nice I think that guy is in deep!
The 18th J÷rgar (TM) Map-of-the-Week release shows the nighttime woodland lair of a herder draug and its six spider draugs. The swamp and lake area of the Ăsir Empire Devastation (see the 12th release for Week 21) has become home to many creatures including these undead. In the J÷rgar campaign setting, herder and spider draugs are the lowest level of undead of the Darkness. Both are being punished for not fulfilling the expectations that their dark master had of them. Spider draugs are undead human draugs that have been placed in spider form. Herder draugs are one step higher; they are human draugs who are compelled to command a group of herder draugs. Both are doomed to their fates until they fulfill whatever goal their dark master has set for them to redeem themselves. The habitat of both always is along trails through dark, isolated forest.
