A spirit that emanates a light-green glow while floating through the air. In general, how spirits come about is shrouded in mystery, but for the ignis fatuus, there is a theory that they came from a gigantic ignis fatuus discovered deep within a forest, which is believed to be the mother of all the ignis fatuus. That certain ignis fatuus escaped capture, but there is no doubt that its discovery has accelerated ongoing research over the mysteries of spirits.

Fiddle (Su)

Once every 1d4+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 22). 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 light or dark descriptor.

Natural Invisibility (Ex)

Wisp have the ability to extinguish their natural glow as a move action, effectively becoming invisible, as per the spell.
