Unearthly Beauty[edit]

What about "Unearthly Beauty"? "The nymph can evoke this ability once every 10 min. Those within 30 feet of the nymph who look directly at at it must succeed at a will save (dc17) or die." D&D monster manual, Core Rulebook III. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Umberonxd (talkcontribs) 12:46, 13 December 2009 (MST). Please sign your posts.

It's not in the SRD, so we don't have it. --Dmilewski 18:12, 13 December 2009 (MST)


How do Nymphs reproduce, because they are all female? Could someone please help me? --Grim914 3:50, 21 March 2010 (MST)

They are creatures of fiction. They can reproduce anyway you would like to. I would say "use your imagination" but that sounds strange. Personally I think nymphs don't reproduce. They were simply constructed by a Deity and left in there natural habitat. This works if they never age physically and live as long as their habitat does. Kind of like a Dryad's relationship with nature.
If your looking for official WotC doctrine on this..? I don't think there is any. You could always just say "Oooo Magic!..." Its what I do when talking to kids anyway. --Jay Freedman 10:27, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks i just wasn't sure if someone knew an actual rule for it. I just made it up like you said last time I played, I managed to convince her to become my wife and I had four children, two male and two female Elf/Nymph cross. Thanks again for your help, it was really useful. --Grim914 0:32, 24 March 2010 (MST)
Anytime. We exist but to serve. --Jay Freedman 06:37, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Question 2[edit]

I have another question about Nymphs. Can they reproduce. --Grim914 10:34, 24 March 2010 (MST)

An all-female race? I doubt it. Maybe they come from trees through or something? --Green Dragon 03:43, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
Like what I mean is with another race. I'm sorry for my mistake, I guess I should've added more detail to it. --Grim914 10:48, 24 March 2010 (MST)
I'm pretty sure the answer's the same as last time. What you see here is the entirety of "official" WotC position on the reproduction of Nymphs -- if it ain't there, you get to make it up.
Now there is a third party book (Book of Erotic Deeds? Something like that) that deals with reproduction, though I haven't read it myself and I doubt they deal with how every race can breed with another race. But if you have questions like these, that's as close an answer as you're going to get. But again, these are fiction, so if you (or your GM) says it happens one way, that's the way it happens.

"Ooo, Magic." --Jay Freedman 04:17, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
Parthenogenesis. Educate yourselves. As far as other species are concerned, from a biological/scientific perspective it would depend on chromosome numbers, but it seems pretty much anything can get it on with a human and presumably (except in the case of some rare incidences, such as mules, ligers, and so forth) from there one would extrapolate anything viable with human with anything else viable with a human, so the blanket answer is yes to the most of the field or no to the same extent -- I think. It's been a while since I had to pretend I knew what I was talking about as far as the subject matter is concerned. -- Jota 05:21, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
Scratch that. You mean this:
"Parthenogenesis occurs naturally in some invertebrate animal species (e.g. water fleas, aphids, nematodes, some bees, some Phasmida, some scorpion species, and parasitic wasps), and vertebrates (e.g. some reptiles,[1] fish, and very rarely birds[2] and sharks[3]) and this type of reproduction has been induced artificially in other species. The term is sometimes used inaccurately to describe reproduction modes in hermaphroditic species which can reproduce by themselves because they contain reproductive organs of both sexes."
Cause this is talking about lizards that live in the Real World. --Jay Freedman 05:52, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I doubt these are simultaneous hermaphrodites. I think coming from nature is much better. See also Talk:Gritaur (4e Race)#Gritaur Grammar for more information on simultaneous hermaphrodites. Me, I'm sticking with the trees. --Green Dragon 17:44, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes nymph's can reproduce with other species. In a 3.5e book named bastards and half-breeds it elaborates on a race that is half elf half nymph.--Vrail 16:34, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

But how can they, like are they the same as humans or elves or is there something else involved, i know in that one adventure we did, it was the same, but like im still wondering if anyone knows of an actual rule to it. And by the way, we live in Central Standard Time. --Grim914 17:11, 31 March 2010 (CST)
According to myths they can mate with non-nymphs, if they have a desire of course. Words have been invented with regard to just this, such as nymphet and the outdated nymphomania. How? I guess their reproductive organs must be comparable to a female humans.
If they came from trees they would not necessarily have a sexual desire, and this works with regard to that. Does something akin to a simultaneous hermaphrodite reproductive system work as well? Yes, among themselves and with others. However, if they were simultaneous hermaphrodites why do they look like females and not look less non-gender specific? Why do myths always call them female? This is why I said "comparable to a female humans" above.
Can they produce children? According to Wizards they must be able to, this is shown with half-breeds. According to myths I have no idea. --Green Dragon 21:27, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Green Dragon you have an immense amount of knowledge, but is it really true, Wizards of the Coast has really not supplied any information on this topic. I have read the the book "Nymphology - Blue Magic" it is very adult, and all about sex and even it has nothing on the topic. This is frustrating. --Grim914 17:49, 31 March 2010
Alright, seriously, now your just jerking our legs. Listen pal, there are no official WotC rules for this. So I'm going to say this one last time, "Use your imagination" or ask you parents to explain to you "The Birds and the Bee's". These are creatures of fiction, they do whatever you want them too. Jeez... --Jay Freedman 22:05, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


I made version without spellcasting.
