Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Stronger than any first party race and uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague or written like casual conversation. Universal advantages/disadvantages, save or you are blind with no range limit, Flat bonus's, flat ignoring of all difficult terrain, free healing, free damage for proximity, 60 feet flying speed, three creature types, etc. Overall poorly executed and needs a rework both from a mechanic and lore perspective to better integrate with the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content.

Elemental Demon[edit]

"In this world exists bizarre entities, with which many sort of pacts can be made. Some of flames, of frost and water, of air and thunder, earth and life, and many, many more. Some attempt to blend in with humanity, others destroy it, but these creatures, these things, walk among us. And we will all be in grave danger until this demonic threat is controlled."

Physical Description[edit]

Elemental Demons are humanoid figures wrapped in any element that they control. They can vary between five and ten feet tall, and tend to have few distinguishing features between each other. Their appearance varies from bloodline to bloodline, however, and some may have odd patterns within their elemental cloak, particular parts being colored differently from the rest of their body.

History[edit]

Nobody truly knows how Elemental Demons were originally created. However, a popular theory is that some kind of Chaos Elemental blessed an ordinary demon with their powers, and that all Elemental Demons are the descendant of that one. Another theory is that they're the offspring of nymphs and demons, which could also be true. Some wizards and knowledgeable people over the ages have claimed to discover the true origin, but none have truthfully been successful thus far.

Society[edit]

Elemental Demons are scattered, without any significant cultural heritage. The ones leaning more towards the chaotic end of the spectrum often attempt to integrate with the other races as best they can, picking up bits and pieces of the cultures around them, while those drifting towards the evil side are usually hermits, chased away from all bastions fairly safely. When demons of opposing elements meet, it's bound to end in bloody conflict, unless both are particularly amicable. Likewise, matching elements tend to get along well, unless particularly mutually spiteful. It's assumed
