Natural Attacks

In addition to gaining weapon proficiencies according to class selection, the nymph begins with one of the following primary natural attacks.

Static Arc

Ranged Touch Attack, 10ft range, 1d4 + CHA Electricity Damage (each hand), Arcing Threat 15.

Arcing threat is treated as a critical strike and must be confirmed, however unlike a critical strike Static Touch need not hit the target in order to threaten arcing, and may be confirmed on the roll of a natural 15 or higher even if such a roll wouldn’t normally hit. When successful, electricity arc between the nymph and the target dealing 2d4 + CHA electricity damage to both each round that the nymph remains within 10 feet of the target. If an already arcing target is successfully charged they are stunned for 2 rounds and for that duration they arc to any and all targets within 10 feet dealing 3d4 + CHA electricity damage and arcing again, for every 3 arcs the stun duration is reduced one round.

Blast Wave

Ranged Touch Attack or added to a Weapon Attack, 30ft Range, 1d20 Air, Tripping.

Used as a ranged attack or as part of a single melee or ranged attack this ability is always a tripping attack. When used as part of a melee attack Blast Wave damage is added to the normal attack damage. In the attack misses but the attack roll is higher than the target’s Touch AC then Blast Wave still hits. When this ability hits it forces an opposed trip check modified by its damage (not including weapon damage in such cases), the nymph may use her charisma modifier instead of her strength for this roll.

Skills and Feats

The nymph begins with play with her creature HD + 3 ranks in the Fly skill and 3 other skills from the following list: Appraise, Balance, Concentration, Diplomacy, Escape Artist, Gather Information, Hide, Jump, Knowledge: Planes, Listen, Perform, Sense Motive, Spellcraft. These skills remain class skills but the nymph gains skills as dictated by their class levels otherwise after creation.
