Spider Cave

From Ultima Codex
Jump to: navigation, search


The Spider Cave was once located south of Empath Abbey. Filled with the eponymous giant spiders, it was an excellent source for spider silk, and also contained significant treasure from former visitors of the cave that did not survive the arachnid onslaught.

Between Ultima VI and Ultima VII, these spiders seem to have been banished from the cavern by giant bees, turning it into the Bee Cave. A large nest of giant spiders could still be found in the wilderness across the waters emanating from Lost Lake.

The Ultima 6 Project[edit]

This is an Ultima 6 Project-related article or section. The information within may not apply to Ultima VI or other Ultima games.

In The Ultima 6 Project, the cave not only holds many spiders, but also the enormous Spider Queen. Killing her not only provides lots of Spider Silk, but also the gratitude of Nan in Britain, who is afraid of spiders.


By now you probably think I'm going to tell you some romantic story about how I found myself trapped in a spider web, but managed to draw my dagger, cut myself free, and escape. Well it's just not so. It was Johann who did that, and he told me all about it. Apparently the webs aren't too hard to hack through if you've got a good weapon, and as long as there aren't any spiders gnawing on your leg while you try it. Johann said it looked like some of the bodies down there still had equipment on them, but he didn't want to stick around and check because the spiders might come back. Myself, I feel that you should always search bodies, whether you killed them yourself or not. You never know when a bottle of wine might be languishing somewhere, just begging for someone who could appreciate it to come along.
