Distraction (Ex) Any living creature vulnerable to a nisse swarm's damage that begins its turn with a nisse swarm in its square is nauseated for 1 round; a Fort save (DC 15) negates the effect. Spellcasting or concentrating on spells within the area of a swarm requires a Concentration check (DC 20 + spell level). Using skills that involve patience and concentration requires a DC 20 Concentration check.

Injury Awareness (Su) A nisse swarm can sense the amount damage on all living and undead creatures within 100 ft. This effect is constant.

Sprite Traits All sprites have a +2 racial bonus on Search, Spot, and Listen checks.

Swarm Healing (Su) A nisse swarm can choose not to damage a creature with its swarm attack. When a nisse swarm occupies a creature's space at the end of the nisse swarm's turn, it can cure 1 point of damage on that creature. This acts as a cure minor wounds spell. The nisse swarm can use its swarm healing on itself as a move action.

Swarm Sacrifice (Su) A nisse swarm can choose not to damage a creature with its swarm attack. When a nisse swarm occupies a creature's space at the end of the nisse swarm's turn, it can cure the creature, up to the nisse swarm's current hit points. The swarm loses an equal number of hit points as its members sacrifice themselves to cure the creature. If the swarm sacrifice reduces the nisse swarm's hit points to 0, it breaks up.

Strategy and Tactics A nisse swarm scours the woodland for wounded creatures or interloping undead. When a nisse swarm is seen, it is hailed as an omen of great fortune among the living.
