Nymph[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

The appearance of nymphs is largely dependent on their father's race, and the region in which they reside. In regards to their environment, if a nymph is from a heavily wooded area, their hair will likely look like it is made of the leaves of the most common tree. If a Nymph lives in grass lands, then again, they'll likely have hair that resembles the grassy surroundings of their home. Often any fur like hair on their legs will be short grass, and possibly even moss if they live in a significantly damp area. A small detail, that will depend on the DM and Players, is having their hair and fur change colors alongside the seasons. One of the few things that is common among all Nymphs is that they are incredibly beautiful females, not just as a norm, but as a rule.

Satyr blooded are the shortest variety of the nymph race. They have dear like furry legs, and flattened noses that connect to the furry upper part of their face. Growing out of the front of their head are two small branches that resemble deer antlers. Their eyes vary in color, usually resembling some form of flower common to the environment in which they live, and their pupils are dark rectangles. They also have dark, olive colored skin in the areas that are not covered by fur.

Faun blooded are a median height among their race, but are also the hardiest of them. They have short goat like snouts, and thick goat like furry legs. Sprouting from the side of their head were curled bark covered horns that resemble those of their father. Unlike their Satyr cousins, their skin is not visible through their fur, but their beauty still shines through despite their more animal like appearance. They do also have the dark rectangular pupils in their flower colored eyes.

Centaur blooded are the tallest and most muscular nymphs. They have long legs that resemble those of horses, and long sweeping tails that has the same basic appearance as the hair on the top of their head. They also have flat noses, and dark mocha colored skin. Unlike their cousins, they don't have flower colored eyes, instead, they resemble the grasslands of their fathers homeland, even if they lived in a more forested or swamp like area theme-selves. Unlike their fathers, they have small horns on the front of their heads that resemble curved wooden stakes.

History[edit]

Because of Nymphs nomadic, and often times wild nature, they have minimal history of their own. They often interfere with the affairs of other plains, becoming concubines for gods, and other fey descended peoples such as elves.

Society[edit]

Nymphs are a nomadic society, refusing to set down any specific place as their home. Their traveling paths cross with their kindred races. During these encounters, they engage in raucous celebrations. These celebrations include drinking, dancing, and singing when they're meeting with Satyrs. When they're with Centaurs, they engage in poetry readings, and religious ceremonies together, as well as plenty of drinking. Fauns are much more simple, as they always meet Nymphs in their own towns during festivals, and the Nymphs are usually an important part of the festivities. No matter who the Nymphs are meeting however, there is love making, and childbearing to be had.

Most Nymphs leave their children to be raised by their fathers. If the child is a male, they will stay with their father and their villages. Females only stay with their fathers side of the family until they reach maturity, at which point they will join their mothers wondering tribe, continuing the cycle for the next generation.

The wondering tribes, as free loving they may be, often stay in certain territories. These territories often overlap with other Nymph tribes, though they don't often overlap. This consistent path taken by Nymphs is what allows them to bring their children into the fold once they are old enough.
