Spider Swarms as Familiars
Spider swarms can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. To do so, the character must take the Improved Familiar feat and be at least a 3rd-level caster. Chitine spellcasters and other worshipers of Gangyn often have spider swarm familiars.
