Although the elemental planes teem with all manner of monstrous creatures, I rarely visit them. Not for any lack of interest, mind you, but simply because of the intense, dreary preparation I must endure to visit these often-inhospitable environments. Despite the hardy nature of my undead form, I can still be burned by elemental flame, crushed beneath the staggering weight of eternal earth, or simply fall forever through the ether of limitless, sky-blue void. But you, dear reader, are not interested in my paltry excuses, so I am happy to report that I have just returned from a whirlwind tour of the Elemental Planes, and I daresay, you will not be disappointed in what I found there . . .
Blackdyrge is back with a new template that is filled to the brim with powerful and exciting new options for your elemental creatures. The elemental exemplar template is five templates in one, allowing you to transform creatures with one of the five elemental subtypes (air, cold, earth, fire, or water) into a diverse and challenging opponent. Elemental exemplars gain a number of new and innovative abilities guaranteed to make them true elemental powerhouses.
So if you want your stone giants to be true earth shakers, or your white dragons to crack the bones of your PCs with frigid cold, or maybe let your djinn bring down the house with a gust of hurricane winds, then look no further. Blackdirge Publishing and the elemental exemplar template allows you to do all of that, and much more.
