	I think it is definitely possible to kill Cragspider, but it is definitely going to require heroquest, and chances are she is a better heroquester, with better resources, than you (as I think she outclasses almost anyone who isn't a superhero. But it is definitely possible to win a victory or two against her - she plays a long game, and is unlikely to go all out (for example, wake the Black Dragon) against those who are just trying to steal some secrets rather than kill her.
