THE SPIDER GOD

Go to the Field Guide Entry documenting this level's easter eggs and points of interest with pictures.

Mission Objective: Recover the stolen Tain and SunHammer and put an end to the Spider Cult.

Notable Quote: "She's too big for the Tain! We'll have to do this the old fashioned way!"

"Your blood will feed my children well!"

Notes: The giant spider can be killed by putting your Axe Dwarves at the base of the big bug's platform and the Demolitionists on a ledge just below her platform and trying to bounce grenades under her.

No matter how many of the Spider Babies you kill you won't get a single Experience point. Also the spiders have red back-sides and look like Myth II spiders.

In the pre-release shots, your dwarves are shown battling Skyrosh on level ground and in a brick room. It appears that originally you had to take on Skyrosh one on one rather than doing it slowly and tactically from that ledge.

There are several explodable walls around the place, one leads to a giant tunnel network another, behind the pedestal where the Tain is, leads to 'the Bugman'.

The night of April 14th, 1439 A.E., Halls of the Spider Temple

Soon after the battle, the city guardsmen arrived, but they were too late. All but a handful of the Smiths of Muirthemne lay dead in their forge. The survivors told of how the robed cultists and their giant spiders had entered their hearth-climbing up from the sewers, and attacking while the smiths slept. The dwarves had tried to mount a defense, but the monstrous spiders were too fast for them. The forge vaults were smashed open and their contents ransacked. Among the missing items were the Tain... and the SunHammer.

Connacht wasted no time. He immediately gathered the guardsmen and marched to the gates of the Spider Temple, demanding that the stolen artifacts be returned immediately. With sanctimonious words, the cultists ignored his request. The enraged guardsmen drew their blades and rushed past Connacht. Suddenly, from the shadowed recesses of the temple, dozens of shapes scuttled and descended upon the guardsmen. The huge spiders took them by complete surprise, laying them low with blinding speed. The cultists ignored the many bodies being dragged back into the shadowy crevices of the temple.

Connacht was shocked. He could not believe that a terror such as this had risen within the city walls. If the cultists realized the true powers of the artifacts stolen from the dwarves, the whole city could be devastated in the fiery holocaust. That night, hundreds of soldiers surrounded the temple grounds, letting nothing enter or leave. In the morning, Connacht planned to lead hundreds more soldiers into the Spider Temple-eradicating the malevolent cultists and their devil spiders therein.

But Connacht was unaware that the surviving Smiths of Muirthemne had plans of their own. Using the same route through the sewers the cultists had used to destroy their forge, the dwarves made their way into the depths of the Spider Temple...

If you win this level you see

Victory Screen

    With great courage, the Smiths of Muirthemne saved the SunHammer and imprisoned the Spider-God Syrkrosh and her seed into the Tain.

When you lose you see

Loss Screen

    The Spider-Cultists proved to be not-easily defeated. When the dust settled, and the bodies were counted, thousands of warriors and civilians lay dead. This loss of life made their defenses too weak to repel Moagim's next assault.

Legends and Lore is really Forrest's baby, though Gholsbane probably does more work on it nowadays. It also contains a lot of work from the Myth Nontoxic days whose exact authors have been lost or forgotten. Some of these lemurs include Joshstar, Orange, Lacrymosa, and poena.dare. Original "Journal of the Legion" concept by poena.dare and Hamish Sinclair. Other authors are credited as appropriate in their individual articles.

Myth at Bungie.org is now maintained almost entirely by Gholsbane and Zandervix; Forrest is (theoretically) still around calling the shots when he can be bothered to check his email, and Claude, as always, OWNZ U.
