    I don't know about last editions, but I can picture a Nymph as a really powerful Kubera with the following merits: Calming Presence, Poetic Heart and Seasonal Magic (Spring/Summer).

    Curiously, in Greek myth, satyrs were all male, while nymphs were all female, supposedly being counterparts of each other, IIRC. Which would've been odd if WW had decided to go with that for the Kith(s).
    But there were roman era statues depicting female satyrs and their kids I'll find the pic after work. And it seemed to me more Satyrs were Randy and usually depicted as male, and Nymphs were always females and chased around by satyrs cause they were hot. Satyrs were creatures, perhaps somewhat divine if all of them descended from Pan, while Nymphs were the very children of the Gods and Titans, first gen children.

    Which makes sense but in like book of houses 2 for instance they list both Nymphs and Inanimae in the opinions section.

    Which makes sense, honestly. I can see them as Kubaras.
