Actions

  • Club. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) bludgeoning damage.
  • Blinding Beauty. If a humanoid starts its turn within 30 feet of the nymph and can see it, she can force the creature to make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature is magically blinded. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. A humanoid that isn’t surprised can avert their eyes.

About

The nymph is a dedicated protector of nature. They are very inquisitive and continue to explore unknown areas.

These fey live very much in the moment and appreciate every new creature and location they discover. However, their curiosity has also gotten them into trouble.

One with Nature. The nymph is deeply connected to the environment around it. An attack on the wilderness is considered an attack on them. Nymphs often make their homes in rugged and isolated areas.

Dazzling Beauty. Incredibly attractive, these wild fey can blind a newcomer with their beauty. The inhabitants of Feyland know to avert their eyes from these fey.
