A Yathchol Webrider
Source: Underdark (p.46)
A Yathchol Webrider is a prestige class of the Underdark. Yathchol Webriders are generally members of the Chitine race of spiderkin, though anyone who possesses the capacity to create a web through natural or magical means may possibly elect to become a Webrider. A stealthy disposition means that rogues are a natural fit for this class.
Yathchol Webriders believe in a mystical construct called the "Overweb", a web that connects all of the Underdark together and allows those who possess the knowledge to travel along it. Because of this knowledge, Yathchol Webriders are capable of moving at great speeds, ignoring barriers of rock that would force others to make detours.
Yathchol Webriders are a very close community and generally very tightly integrated into Chitine society, though non-Chitines may create their own communities or even walk the infinite paths of the Overweb alone. Their dispositions and alignments vary just like most other groups, although communities of Yathchol Webriders typically share the same views.
