Maliad Nymph: A new race for 5e

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. This one will be the final entry in the Nymph series...

Nymph: Maliad

The maliad were born from the blood of Gaia when Cronus castrated Uranos. Originally associated with the ash tree, the term now encompasses all forest nymphs. Maliads are curious about the world of men, have a basic understanding of it and are the most likely to interact with mortals.

Maliad love to be chased, like a doe in the forest. As such, they love to tease those they love by running away. They are the most likely to run away from their home to see the world.

Maliad Features

Your nymph character has several traits in common with all other nymphs.

Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma and Dexterity scores each increase by 1.

Age. You grew very quickly from a young age and matured around age ten. From there, you will change very little the rest of your lives. You can live up to ten centuries.

Size. Nymph are the same size as human females. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Female. All nymphs are female.

Hard to hold. You have advantage on any saving throw to escape being grappled.

Language. You can speak, read, and write Common and Sylvan.

Beauty. You may cast sanctuary on yourself, using Charisma as your spellcasting ability. You regain use of this ability when you complete a long rest.

Forestwalk. Plant formations do not slow you down, unless they are magically affected.
