- "Levels" can not be assigned to a declared number type with value 3.

A Half-Nymph Paragon brings to two parts of its heritage together and focuses them as one, becoming more powerful and more intune with their lineage than any normal Half-Nymph could dream of.
Making a Half-Nymph Paragon
Abilities: Charisma is the most important ability for a Half-Nymph, as it fuels the Half-Nymphs bonuses on charisma related skill checks.
Races: This class is for Half-Nymphs only.

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Gather Information (Cha), Handle Animal (Cha), Heal (Wis), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str).
All of the following are class features of the Half-Nymph Paragon.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Half-Nymph is proficient with all simple weapons, but not with any armors or shields.
Spellcasting: At 2nd and 3rd levels a Half-Nymph Paragon gains new spells per day (and spells known if applicable) as if she had also gained a level in a spellcasting class she belonged to before gaining the level. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (bonus metamagic or item creation feats, assassin or bard abilities, and so on). This essentially means that she adds the levels of Half-Nymph Paragon to the level in the spellcasting class, then determines the spells per day, spells known and caster level accordingly.
If a character had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a Half-Nymph Paragon, she must decide to which class she adds the levels of Half-Nymph Paragon. If a Half-Nymph Paragon has no levels in a spellcasting class, this feature has no effect.
Bonus Feat (Ex):At 1st level, a Half-Nymph Paragon gains a bonus feat. The character must meet the feat's prerequisites normally.
Divided Ancestry (Ex):Unlike other racial paragons, Half-Nymphs can take levels in more than one racial paragon class. After gaining at least one level as a Half-Nymph Paragon, a character can take either Nymph Paragon levels or human paragon levels (but not both).
Damage Reduction (Su): Beginning at 1st level a Half-Nymph's biology begins to change and their skin magically densens like that of their Half-Nymph parent. Starting at 1st level a Half-Nymph gains damage reduction 2/Cold Iron. This bonus increases by an additional +2 each level until the Half-Nymph has damage reduction 6/Cold Iron at 3rd level.
Persuasion (Ex): A 2nd level Half-Nymph Paragon's racial bonus on Diplomacy, Gather information and Sense Motive checks increases to +3. She also gains a +2 racial bonus on all other Charisma-based skills.
Ability Boost (Ex): At 3rd level, a Half-Nymph Paragon's Charisma score increases by 2 points.
