Element Magebred (3.5e Template)
From D&D Wiki
Found on the elemental plain of electricity are electric magebreed creatures whom resemble those of the material plane except for their blue or yellow tinged skin and they normally have bigger, stronger builds. They are stronger versions of their similar electric creature cousins except stronger, faster and tougher and a built for war. Electric magebreed creatures while rare can be curious and playful at their best but unpredictable and destructive at their worst.
Creating an Electric magebreed
'Electric magebreed' is a template that can be acquired or inherited and can be applied to any creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature).
A electric magebreed creature uses all the base creature’s statistics and abilities except as noted here. Do not recalculate the creature’s Hit Dice, base attack bonus, saves, or skill points if its type changes.
Size and Type
Animals or vermin with this template become magical beasts, but otherwise the creature type is unchanged. Size is unchanged. Electric creatures gain the electricity subtype. Electric creatures encountered outside the elemental plane of electricity also have the extraplanar subtype.
