SPECIAL ABILITIES

Blinding Beauty (Su)

This ability affects all humanoids within 30 feet of a nymph. Those who look directly at a nymph must succeed on a DC 27 Fortitude save or be blinded permanently. A nymph can suppress or resume this ability as a free action. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Corrupting Gaze (Su)

The ghost is disfigured through age or violence, and has a gaze attack with a range of 30 feet that causes 2d10 damage and 1d4 Charisma damage (Fortitude save negates Charisma damage but not physical damage).

Draining Touch (Su)

The ghost has a touch attack that drains 1d4 points from any one ability score it selects on a hit. On each such successful attack, the ghost heals 5 points of damage to itself. When a ghost makes a draining touch attack, it cannot use its standard ghostly touch attack.

Rejuvenation (Su)

In most cases, it’s difficult to destroy a ghost through simple combat: the “destroyed” spirit restores itself in 2d4 days. Even the most powerful spells are usually only temporary solutions. The only way to permanently destroy a ghost is to determine the reason for its existence and set right whatever prevents it from resting in peace. The Adventure Path details the method of putting her to rest.

Spells (Su)

A nymph casts spells as a 7th-level druid, but cannot swap out prepared spells to cast summon spells.

Stunning Glance (Su)

As a standard action, a nymph can stun a creature within 30 feet with a look. The target must succeed on a DC 25 Fortitude save or be stunned for 2d4 rounds. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Telekinesis (Su)

The ghost can use telekinesis as a standard action once every 1d4 rounds (caster level 12th).

Unearthly Grace (Su)

A nymph adds her Charisma modifier as a racial bonus on all her saving throws, and as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class.

Wild Empathy (Su)

This works like the druid‘s wild empathy class feature, except the nymph has a +6 racial bonus on the check. The nymph’s effective druid level is equal to her HD for determining her total modifier to the check.
