Harpy

Species Traits

Bonus Feat: A harpy gains Flyby Attack as a bonus feat.

Captivating Song (Su): The song of a harpy is a sonic, mind-affecting charm effect that fills a 300-foot spread. Every creature within that area that can hear the harpy must succeed at a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the harpy’s Hit Dice + its Charisma modifier) or become utterly captivated for as long as the harpy sings. A captivated creature immediately begins moving toward the harpy, taking the most direct route available. If its path leads into a dangerous area (through flame, off a building, or the like), the creature is entitled to a second saving throw at the same DC to negate the effect.

An affected creature within 5 feet of the harpy simply stands there and offers no resistance to the monster’s attacks, although it can defend itself against attacks from other sources. Extremely loud music and other noises (such as an air horn) allow the captivated creature a new Will save. A creature that makes a successful saving throw at any point negates the effect and is immune to that harpy’s song for 24 hours. A harpy is immune to its own captivating song ability and to those of other harpies.

Species Bonuses: The harpy’s amazing voice grants it a +4 species bonus on Perform (act), Perform (sing), and Perform (stand-up) checks.
