A phase spider possesses the magical ability to phase in and out of the Ethereal Plane. It seems to appear out of nowhere and quickly vanishes after attacking. Its movement on the Ethereal Plane before coming back to the Material Plane makes it seem like it can teleport.


Ethereal Jaunt: As a bonus action, the spider can magically shift from the Material Plane to the Ethereal Plane, or vice versa.

Spider Climb: The spider can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Web Walker: The spider ignores movement restrictions caused by webbing.


Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 7 (1d10 + 2) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 11 Constitution saving throw, taking 18 (4d8) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even after regaining hit points, and is paralyzed while poisoned in this way.

The SendingStone review

The Phase Spider is a challenging monster in the game with a Challenge Rating of 3, making it a formidable foe for players. With its natural armor and high DEX, it is difficult to hit, and its ability to phase from one plane to another makes it unpredictable and difficult to pin down. Its relatively low HP is offset by its ability to move quickly and surprise players with its teleportation.

While some players may find the Phase Spider frustrating to fight against, others may appreciate its unique abilities and the challenge it presents. DMs can use this monster to add variety to their encounters and test their players' tactics and adaptability. Overall, the Phase Spider is a solid addition to any campaign, adding a level of difficulty that will keep players on their toes.

Phase Spider is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Phase Spider Pathfinder edition. Want to use Phase Spider in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
