Blinding Beauty: The nymph can activate this ability at will as a Concentrate maneuver. When she does so, anyone who sees her must roll Fright Check, using the Awe variant table (GURPS Powers, p. 85). In addition, every victim within 8 yards who is looking directly at the nymph, must make a roll against HT or become permanently blind. This blindness is magical – it can be dispelled normally. If a victim succeeds at his Fright Check, he will be unaffected by the awe aspect of this ability for one hour. If a victim succeeds at his Will roll to resist, he will be unaffected by the blinding aspect of this ability for one hour.
Dimension Door (11): Once per day, a nymph can spend 1 FP and make a Concentrate maneuver to teleport to any place within 10 yards, as if using the Warp (p. B97) advantage.
Stunning Glance (11): The nymph can attempt to stun an enemy by locking eyes with him. Roll a Quick Contest between of Will between the nymph and her target, penalized by the range between them. Mind Shield adds to resistance against this ability. If the nymph wins, the target suffers mental stun. On subsequent turns, he can recover normally by making an unpenalized IQ roll.
