You offer the giant spider one of your Recovereats.

The spider hesitates... but eats it.

"Tastes like sheet," the spider replies. "But is verry feelling. Much better."

You ask the spider about fairies.

"Vhat is fairry?," the spider asks.

You... try to describe fairies. They're like really small people? With wings, you think? You're... pretty sure they glow. You've never actually seen a fairy, but that's what you imagine they look like.

"Oh, yah," the spider says. "Leetle bug peeple. I trried to catch them vhen I vas leetle spider, verry hard. Much easier as beeg spider, but vhat is point? Fairry is not enough food now. They hang out in back of thees place, but lock door so no beeg spiderrs get in."

You point out that, if the spider joins your group, it'll have access to a much wider variety of food. You're going to be traveling, and there's all kinds of interesting things to eat out there.

"You arre verry strange, my frriend. I do not know vhy you vould vant beeg spider on team, unless you arre hunting beeg flies."

The biggest: a panty theif. Incidentally, you wouldn't know a girl willing to boink a hundred or so goblins, would you?

i don't think we really need a beeg spider, to be honest. not to mention that as soon as the language potion wears off, it's not going to be able to understand us. we should just... leave it be and let it go about it's spidery business. we came here for the fairies, after all. it probably won't bother us now if we just walk on by.

We just need to find someone to boink until we can get a language spell! C'moooon, we could have a big spider friend!

Ask the spider if he's willing to sleep with dozens of goblins.

The spider is letting us live. I say we not look this gift horse in the mouth by asking it again to leave its home. I still think that hole in the wall is worth investigating though.

Also maybe explain to our confused party members to not hurt the spider for now. All they know is we just made strange noises at, untied, and fed this giant ass bug that just tried to eat us not but 2 minutes earlier.

Yes, Just leave Shelob here. Thank it for it's time and go investigate that door. If we need to run we can lure them to Shelob.
