Captivating Song (Su) -- The most insidious ability of the harpy is its song. When a harpy sings, all creatures (other than harpies) within a 300-foot spread must succeed on a DC 18 Will save or become captivated. This is a sonic mind-affecting charm effect. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same harpyís song for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.
A captivated victim walks toward the harpy, taking the most direct route available. If the path leads into a dangerous area (through flame, off a cliff, or the like), that creature gets a second saving throw. Captivated creatures can take no actions other than to defend themselves. (Thus, a fighter cannot run away or attack but takes no defensive penalties.) A victim within 5 feet of the harpy stands there and offers no resistance to the monsterís attacks. The effect continues for as long as the harpy sings and for 1 round thereafter. A bardís countersong ability allows the captivated creature to attempt a new Will save.
Create Spawn (Su) -- A creature killed by a ghoulish harpy rises as a form of ghoul 1d4 days after death. The victim returns as a ghoul if it was a humanoid with 3 or fewer HD and as a ghoulish creature if it was a giant or monstrous humanoid with 4 or more HD.
Paralysis (Ex) -- Those hit by a ghoulish harpyís claw or bite attack must succeed at a DC 18 Fortitude save or be paralyzed for 1d6+2 minutes. Elves are immune to this paralysis.
