Special Abilities
Size Alteration (Su) At will, a spriggan can grow from Small to Large size or back again. Weapons, armor, and other inanimate objects on its person grow proportionately with it when it changes size. This is similar to the enlarge person spell. An enlarged spriggan gains +12 Strength, –2 Dexterity, +6 Constitution, and a –2 to AC. While enlarged, a spriggan cannot use its spell-like abilities or its innate sneak attack ability (though any other sneak attack it may have, such as from rogue class levels, is unaffected when it changes size).

Sneak Attack (Ex)
If an creature can catch an opponent when unable to defend themselves effectively from attack, they can strike a vital spot for extra damage. A sneak attack deals extra damage anytime the target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when they flank the target. This extra damage is 1d6 at 1st level, and increases by 1d6 every two rogue levels thereafter. Should they score a critical hit with a sneak attack, this extra damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks can count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet.

If using a weapon that deals nonlethal damage (like a sap, whip, or an unarmed strike), a sneak attack deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. She cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack, not even with the usual –4 penalty.

The attacker must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. The attacker cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with concealment.
