So there isn't an Initiate of Lolth (at least not one that I could find), so I decided to make one. I based it off of Initiate of Eilistraee.

Initiate of Lolth
Cleric or Blackguard, Drow, Patron Diety Lolth

Once per day, you can spend one of the daily uses of your racial spell-like abilities (dancing lights, darkness, or faerie fire) to cast Web as a spell-like ability (caster level equals class level). In addition, you add the following spells to your cleric or Blackguard spell list. 1st--Alibi (Exemplars of Evil) 3rd--Spiderform (Drow of the Underdark) 5th--Shadow Form (Complete Adventurer)

I think this seems relatively balanced, but I also used spells that aren't on the Cleric spell list to so that it opens up some new abilities you wouldn't normally have access to. Also web is a second level spell, whereas magic missle (the original from Initiate of Eilistraee) is a level one, but the final spell for IoE is a 6th level where this is only a fifth, and the spells for IoE are made specially for it, unlike these. And then other than that I thought these spells made sense, subterfuge, sneaking, and spiders are kind of a Lolth worshipping drow kind of thing. But long story short (too late), I'm not sure about balance, which is my main concern with it.

This looks very balanced. Web is a powerful spell, but the once per day limit keeps this from being to potent. The added spells are also nice.

I'd say the goal of a feat like this is to add some flavor to your Loth worshipper while also adding a little extra variety, and this feat accomplishes both of those goals. Nice job.
