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[edit]

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.

Armor Class[edit]

The base creature gains +4 natural armor bonus


The creature gains two claw attacks if it did not already have them and the damage is as follows:

Fine 1D2

Diminutive 1D3

Tiny 1D4

Small 1D6

Medium 1D8

Large 2D6

Huge 2D8

Gargantua 4D6

Colossal 4D8

If the base creature already has a claw attack it uses the better base damage

Special Attacks[edit]

An electric creature retains all the special attacks of the base creature, plus gains the following special attack:

Static (Ex): An electric creature's body is flowing with intense amounts of electricity, so its unarmed attacks & natural weapons deal 5 extra point of electricity damage. Its metallic weapons also conduct this electricity.
