A Yathchol webrider
Source: Underdark pp. 46–47
A Yathchol webrider was a prestige class of the Underdark. Yathchol webriders were generally members of the chitine race of spiderkind, though anyone who possessed the capacity to create a web through natural or magical means might elect to become a webrider. A stealthy disposition meant that rogues were a natural fit for this class.
Yathchol webriders believed in a mystical construct called the "Overweb", a web that connected all of the Underdark together and allowed those who possessed the knowledge of it to travel along it. Because of this knowledge, Yathchol webriders were capable of moving at great speeds, ignoring barriers of rock that would force others to make detours.
Yathchol webriders were a very close community and generally very tightly integrated into chitine society, though non-chitines might create their own communities or even walk the infinite paths of the Overweb alone. Their dispositions and alignments varied just like most other groups, although communities of Yathchol webriders typically shared the same views.
