Blue WispA floating monster that emits a constant, eerie light. In more superstitious times, these wisps were thought to be souls of the dead, unable to move on from our plane, and were greatly feared. But we now know they are a subset of fairies. They do not require sustenance in the traditional sense but appear to absorb magic from the atmosphere to convert into energy. Wisps are very sensitive to magical vibrations and often swarm around powerful magic-users. Luckily it is quite easy to see them coming, given their radiant appearance.

Fiddle (Su)

Once every 1d6+1 rounds, the wisp’s ability to create a surprisingly pleasant sound not unlike that of a tiny fiddle. The wisp creates a catchy tune that compels any creature within a 20-foot spread to dance and caper. A creature can resist this compulsion by making a successful Will save (DC 16). Creatures that fail are compelled to dance and shuffle their feet, and are effectively staggered for the duration of this spell. Once a creature makes the save against this spell, it is immune to further fiddle effects from that caster for 24 hours. This is a sonic mind-affecting effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 17).

Immunity to Magic (Su)

Wisp are immune to all spells and spell-like abilities that allow spell resistance, except spells with the lightning descriptor.

Natural Invisibility (Ex)

Wisp have the ability to extinguish their natural glow as a move action, effectively becoming invisible, as per the spell. If they get hit or attack in any form they become visible for 1d4 rounds.
