Elemental Compendium I: Creatures of the Inner Planes


This supplement contains a wide variety of elementals that are ideal for both DM's and players. With CR's ranging from 1/4 all the way to 30, this supplement has monsters compatible with every level of play, and the majority of the elementals are compatible with the conjure minor elementals and conjure elementals spells, presenting players with a wide variety of new options for summoning.

On the lower end of the CR spectrum, we have a new selection of mephits, including acid mephits, lightning mephits, and mephits inspired by the three main elements of alchemy: mercury, salt, and sulfur. Moving on from that to the CR 2 options, there are the elemental grues and elemental stewards, both of which offer unique roleplay and combat capabilities to both DM's and players, not to mention the lesser elementals.

In the CR 5 range, I have a myriad of elementals based on the conjunction of other elements, such as steam, dust, ice, and smoke. In addition, there are the horror elementals: hateful, elemental embodiments of sins made real, perfect for Ravenloft and other horror campaigns. And above that, ideal for 9th level castings of conjure elemental, are the greater elementals.

This supplement also contains new monsters for DM's, such as the avatars of elemental evil, one of the last remaining remnants of the unity that the Cult of the Elder Elemental Eye once had, and the elemental monoliths, elementals of power close to that of the princes themselves!

Above even those are the four Princes of Elemental Good: the brave Ben Hadar, the wise Chan, the stalwart Sunnis, and the kind Zaaman Rul. These forces represent opposition to the cults of elemental evil.

Finally, there are the primordials: ancient beings of the old world whose very presence spells doom for the mortal races. There are statistics for Cryonax, the lord of Frostfell who yearns to see all life extinguished, and Solkara, a being embodying the pure churning chaos of the ancient earth. Both of these monstrosities present a real and existential threat to the world as a whole.

A huge thanks to Ryan van Dongen for the fantastic artwork, and an equally big thank you to the Homebrewery for the program that made this possible!

The Lesser Ice Elemental has a Strength, Dexterity and Constitution of 0.

Also, what is your method for deciding proficiency bonuses? Those seem to be inconsistent.

Love the Cryonax art by the way.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
