Borrow Time (Su)

As a reaction, a wyspiria can pull potential energy away from their future self and into the present, taking a standard action during another creature’s turn as though the wyspiria had readied an action. After using borrow time, the wyspiria is staggered until the end of their next turn.

Connect (Ex)

A wyspiria that hits with their tentacle attack can automatically connect themself to the target, plugging one of their cord-like appendages into the target. Once connected, the wyspiria feeds the target a stream of fabricated sensory data, allowing the wyspiria to transfer information and false perceptions. Each round at the start of their turn, the target must succeed at a Will save to remain aware of their real surroundings. On a failure, they are staggered until the start of their next turn. The wyspiria can take a move action at the beginning of their turn each round to maintain all of their connections; otherwise all their connections end. The appendages have 15 feet of reach, and attached targets’ movement is restricted to within 15 feet of the wyspiria. The appendage can be detached with a successful Strength check (DC 15) as a standard action, or with a successful attack against the appendage (same AC as the wyspiria). Targets can also attempt a Strength check to break free any time the wyspiria moves; this requires no action. On a failure, the target moves with the wyspiria. A wyspiria can maintain up to ten connections at one time.

Shockray (Ex)

A wyspiria’s shockray is a ranged attack with a range increment of 60 feet.


Environment any
Organization solitary, sequence (2, 3, 5, or 8), or delegation (1 wyspiria plus 2 iridias)

Wyspirias are dispatched across the galaxy. They stand 7 feet tall with chassis of multicolored glass, and a multitude of coiled, rootlike tentacles cascading from their waists. As a result of the resemblance they bear to floating trees, they are sometimes called trees of knowledge. Wyspirias use their tendrils to plug themselves into people and machines alike—a direct connection that allows them to quickly transfer huge quantities of data between connected people and devices.

Whereas iridias come to the Prime Material Plane offering gifts of knowledge and technology to mortals, many believe wyspirias do the opposite, collecting libraries of secrets and information about the galaxy for the unseen purposes of spectra. Rarely, wyspirias are said to appear during the peace talks of warring civilizations, connecting the opposing delegates and enabling them to understand each other directly. Many believe these spectra intervene only when they deem the risk of losing technology or information from a conflict too great.

Sondrias are a new variety of spectra primarily encountered inside Hyperspace. They are small and sharply featured, with six arms, razor talons, and round, flat, owlish faces. Sometimes called Drift pixies, their presence is always accompanied by a grainy, low-pitched hum or buzzing noise. Sondrias use their own voices more often than other types of spectra, and sequences of sondrias have a habit of speaking at the same time in overlapping sentences that are difficult to pick apart.

Like the larger and more formidable aspecnas, sondrias patrol Hyperspace to help lost travelers and rescue marooned escape pods or starships whose Drift engines malfunction, latching onto the vessels and using their slip drives to boost them back to the Material Plane.
