Heirs to Elemental Power

Selected Option:
Softcover, Standard Color Book
PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book


Inspired by the legendary cartoon series—that we probably shouldn't name—involving elemental magic, Heirs to Elemental Power is a genasi overhaul, featuring new Genasi Ancestries—from the classical Four Elements to Mixed Genasi (Frost, Cinder, Magma, and more!) and even Genasi soaked in the energies of the Positive- and Negative Planes (Ash, Dawn, and even the hungering Void number among the ranks of these "Quasielemental" Genasi!)—for a total of sixteen vibrant and exciting subancestries! This 85-page supplement—available in print—brings new life to Genasi, mechanically and narratively! This supplement also includes:

Genasi Traits. The core four genasi elements feature a new and improved way to tap into their elemental heritage: each genasi gains a cantrip, and a once-per-long-rest ability to cast one of five spells befitting their heritage. With this increased versatility, a genasi can harness their element for the situation at hand, rather than suffer the rigidity of traditional ancestral spellcasting.

  • Air Genasi: the gust cantrip and, starting at 3rd level, expeditious retreat, feather fall, and thunderwave, with gust of wind and levitate added at 5th level.
  • Earth Genasi: the mold earth cantrip and, starting at 3rd level, earth tremor, longstrider, and shield, with Maximilian's earthen grasp and shatter added at 5th level.
  • Fire Genasi: the produce flame cantrip and, starting at 3rd level, burning hands, hellish rebuke, and searing smite, with Aganazzar's scorcher and flame blade added at 5th level.
  • Water Genasi: the shape water cantrip and, starting at 3rd level, create or destroy water, cure wounds, and ice knife, with lesser restoration and flame blade (dealing cold damage instead!) added at 5th level.

Genasi Origins. We explore new avenues to Genasidom, be it through the typical Genie heritage or exposure to elemental rifts! With multiple tables to roll on, you can craft your own unique Genasi backstory!

Class Options. A new option for the Barbarian's Path of the Storm Herald for those that wish to raise mountains, plus four new Monastic Traditions, each devoted to harnessing one of the four classical Elements:

  • The Way of the Ceaseless Sky grants its students mastery of wind and lightning!
  • The Way of the Stalwart Earth allows the monk to hurl boulders with their Unarmed Strikes, dealing force damage!
  • The Way of the Inner Inferno lets one unleash their ultimate firebender, snapping out short but ravenous flames with every Unarmed Strike, and even granting the long-coveted fireball at 11th level for only 3 ki!
  • The Way of the Unending River gives to the monk the power of frost and healing, and of course, the ability to slap your foes every with a whip of water!

Genasi Ancestral Feats. A whopping twenty-three new Genasi ancestral feats to further empower your Genasi character! The Four Classical Elements enjoy the most feats, but at least one feat has been provided with for every new Genasi type!

Genasi Lore. Stock your world with entire genasi tribes and kingdoms forged not from genie ancestry, but exposure to elemental rifts or standing as yet-living civilizations that harken back to when the world was young! The chapter explores Genasi religion—featuring the four elemental gods of the Forgotten Realms—and suggests environments, history, and politics to include in your world. Everything, of course, changed when the Fire Genasi attacked!

Bestiary. This supplement features thirty-eight new NPCs for your game—from Ash, Frost, and Void elementals to Earth Genasi Dai Li agents and Fire Genasi Crusaders!

Magic Items. Just as adventurers might find a belt of dwarvenkind or a pair of boots of elvenkind, so too can you add Genasi-forged arcana, like the gauntlets of Earth Genasikind and the dowsing rod of Grumbar, God of Elemental Earth, given to devout disciples to locate precious gems and metals!

Planar Bleeding. Not a fan of this world? Say no more! We've got a 9th-level spell that allows you to rip open a rift to an Elemental Plane and saturate the region with otherworldly energies!

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.
