The Spyder Clues 
(as logged in Cyan Chat)

Below are the messages left by Spyder in Cyan Chat over the past several months.  I have linked individual elements of the clues to the associated egg.  Several clues may be linked to the same subsequent page, as they were used to crack the same egg.

are growing few. This will have to be the last chat for awhile until

but I can't elaborate now.]
