The spider being half concealed by the hill likely wasn't a coincidence, I feel like he saw Webber and stopped using his magic.

I mean he still has access to the codex umbra and his shadow powers in the game so it wouldn't make sense for him not to have any magic left.

Well I do hope so, seeing him meet another character would probably be a better story then trying to run away from a spider

Hey if you think about, why would they choose Webber out of all the people to find him, then again Webber would be pretty menacing at first glance.

Still he's looking more perplexed about the thing in front of him rather than his own attack (maybe if he was looking at his hand it would be more clear that the attack just failed). But I get your point

 

but wait, the important thing we overlooked is...what attack are we talking about? The codex is closed and on the ground, and I don't think we've ever seen him firing a flameball or something through his hand o-o

If he actually canceled an attack then that wouldn't make sense, because he's not on the throne anymore and therefore doesn't have the power to do that in the first place.

The idea was to show that Maxwell had only just realized he no longer has his demon powers and couldn't rely on his natural magic to defend himself.

Well in The Lost Fragment shadow Maxwell could summon meteors, but I get your point!

Also maybe what was gonna happen is someone saves Maxwell from the spider and is like "wait... DEMON"

So far, this hasn't shown anything we don't already know. Maxwell was dethroned and got turned back into a mortal, therefore lost his magic power and can't defend himself against the spider with his usual methods I suppose.

Now, if this was actually accurate to gameplay he'd just pull out the dark sword in his pocket and slash the spider. But this is lore!

If it is just a spider and not Webber like people are speculating, then I see three possibilities:

1. Maxwell opens Codex Umbra and does something (as it's still laying on the grown)

2. Someone saves him

3. Maxwell dies. End of lore, hope it was worth the wait!

Hmm in dst he doesn't start with his dark armor and purple gem, so maybe that relates to this too?

DST takes place after DS, so any of the changes in DST compared to the base game can be explained by being later on in the timeline.

Or just for gameplay balance...

well yea, but I think most games would try to tie in lore to the balancing so its not just out of place balancing

In the lore though characters are not nerfed because they were too strong, so we'd have to assume changes happen due to the later timeline in context of the game's lore.

Well going off that logic...

Maxwell isn't really seen with a nightmare sword while on the throne. He does have one in single player (after being freed). So if it is following this logic then Maxwell is now in DST, but if he has already been freed then he would already know he lost his power. Thus he couldn't be in DST if he is just now learning he has no power. 

That was confusing as hell to write. Feel free to point out errors.

Because Webber is the only one that looks like a monster and would cause Maxwell to immediately attack out of self defense?

 

duh

It looks to me like it's coming from his hand, especially in line of what has been already said, but I'll entertain the thought. 

If the smoke isn't from his hand then my mind immediately goes to Willow burning something.

Is it just me or does this spider have a hairdo of sorts? Most curious...
