The Spiders became one of Redmond’s largest gangs in the 2060s, following the Universal Brotherhood’s downfall. The aftermath of the Brotherhood’s attempted takeover left a trail of damaged, bitter people. Widow, a Spider shaman, brought them together and taught them how to hunt insect spirits.
When their numbers begin to dwindle, the Spiders turn to kidnapping and brainwashing to build their ranks back up.
Group contacts’ cost comes out of your character’s starting Karma, rather than your free Contact points (Run Faster, p. 177).
