  • Water Walk: a half aranea sahuagin can walk across the surface of the water, as a water-strider. They naturally tend to float, and take a -10 to all swim checks that require them to stay submurged. Water walk cannot be used in conjunction with armor (exception: light mithril)
  • Spells: an aranea casts spells as a 3rd level sorcerer.
  • Web: in spider or hybrid form an aranea can throw a web 6/day, range 50, inc 10
  • Change Shape: its natural form is a medium monstrous spider. It may turn into a small or medium humanoid. In humanoid form, it loses its bite, web, poison and waterwalk.

It may also be a medium spider-humanoid hybrid, which retains its bite attack, webs, but not waterwalk.
