The Weavers are a religious sect of the Shabri who live along the Rift and worship the spiders who live there. They have built altars all along the Rift where it meets the Abron Plains. The Weavers climb down into the Rift and collect the Rift Spiders’ silk to use in their religious trappings.
A sub-sect of the Weavers are called The Envenomed. They allow themselves to be bitten by the spiders in a holy rite and gradually build up an immunity to the venom. This gives them magical powers, but to those who are not able to open their minds to the venom it is a deadly poison.
