    Default Exotic Elementals

    Hey, y'all. I've been trying to put together some new elemental monsters, with a more abstract theme. The CR 6 ones (truth, beauty, charm and strange) are meant for use with this spell. Let me know what you think!

    Spoiler: Beauty Elemental
    Show
    Beauty Elemental
    Medium elemental, neutral

    Armour Class 15
    Hit Points 105 (14d8 + 42)
    Speed 50 ft.

    STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA
    10 (+0) 20 (+5) 17 (+3) 6 (-2) 10 (+0) 14 (+2)

    Damage Resistances bludgeoning, piercing and slashing from nonmagical weapons
    Damage Immunities poison
    Condition Immunities exhausted, paralysed, petrified, poisoned, unconscious
    Senses darkvision 60 ft., passive Perception 10
    Languages Primordial
    Challenge 6 (2,300 XP)


    Evasion. If the elemental is subjected to an effect that allows it to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, the elemental instead takes no damage if it succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if it fails.

    Graceful Attacks. All melee weapon attacks made by the elemental are considered to be finesse weapons.

    Actions

    Multiattack. The elemental uses its Beautiful Visage then makes two melee weapon attacks.

    Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d6+5) bludgeoning damage.

    Beautiful Visage. The elemental turns its visage upon one creature within 120 feet that can see it. That creature must make a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw or be blinded for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success. If the creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, that creature is immune to the elemental's Beautiful Visage for the next 24 hours.

    Sympathy Dance. The elemental performs a dance that is keyed to a specific type of creature, such as red dragons, goblins or vampires. Any creature of the specified type that can see the elemental must make a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw or be compelled to move closer to the elemental. It must use all of its movement on its turns to move closer to the elemental, and cannot willingly move further away. Affected creatures may make attempt the save again at the end of each of their turns, as well as whenever the elemental damages or otherwise harms them.

    Spoiler: Charm Elemental
    Show
    Charm Elemental
    Medium elemental, neutral

    Armour Class 16
    Hit Points 105 (14d8 + 42)
    Speed 40 ft.

    STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA
    12 (+1) 17 (+3) 16 (+3) 6 (-2) 12 (+1) 16 (+3)

    Damage Resistances bludgeoning, piercing and slashing from nonmagical weapons
    Damage Immunities poison
    Condition Immunities exhausted, paralysed, petrified, poisoned, unconscious
    Senses darkvision 60 ft., passive Perception 11
    Languages Common, Elvish, Primordial, Sylvan
    Challenge 6 (2,300 XP)


    Charismatic Defense. The elemental calculates its armour class as 10 + Dexterity modifier + Charisma modifier

    Innate Spellcasting. The elemental's innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 14). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

    At will: Friends
    1/day each: Animal Friendship, Command, Calm Emotions

    Actions

    Draining Touch. The elemental touches a creature. The target must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw against this attack, taking 36 (6d10 + 3) psychic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. The target's hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.

    Charm. One humanoid the elemental can see within 30 feet of it must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be magically charmed for 1 day. The charmed target obeys the elemental's verbal commands. If the target suffers any harm or receives a suicidal command, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on a success. If the target successfully saves against the effect, or if the effect on it ends, the target is immune to this elemental's Charm for the next 24 hours.
    The elemental can have only one target charmed at a time. If it charms another, the effect on the previous target ends.

    Senses darkvision 60 ft., passive Perception 10
    Languages Primordial
    Challenge 6 (2,300 XP)


    Shapechanger. The elemental can use a bonus action to polymorph into a weird monster, made up of a composite assotment of limbs, claws, tails and jaws. The elemental's statistics do not change, but if it is restrained or grappled when it uses this ability, that effect is ended immediately.

    Actions

    Multiattack. The elemental makes three melee attacks. It must use three different types of attack.

    Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8+4) piercing damage.

    Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d4+4) slashing damage.

    Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d10+4) bludgeoning damage.

    Incorporeal Movement. The elemental can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.

    Master of Truth. The elemental knows when it hears a lie.

    The beauty elemental can be refluffed for a nymph, right?

    Otherwise, looks like fun.

    You could but personally, I wouldn't. Nymphs are fey creatures - the dryad from the MM confirms that.

    When I get around to it, I will be adding the other types of nymph to my fey folio; I will be aiming for CR 2 when I do so.

    When I saw Charm and Strange elemental, my thought was "where are Up and Down elementals?". Is Beauty currently called Bottom elemental, and Truth Top elemental?
    It's Eberron, not ebberon.
    It's not high magic, it's wide magic.
    And it's definitely not steampunk. The only time steam gets involved is when the fire and water elementals get loose.

    Why does the Time Elemental have Haste, when it it is explicitly immune to the spell?

    Only by gnomes. Other wizards, especially elves, cling on to the traditional names because they are "more romantic".

    Watson: because it has mastery over time.
    Doyle: so that it can support its allies (most likely its summoner).

    You really do like to do that "Watson/Doyle" thing, don't you? I must admit, I'm getting curious to what it actually means. Is there any chance that you'd be able to explain it to me?

    Also, I really do like these ideas. I feel that they perfectly capture the pure weirdness that is elemental magic. Though the "Truth" and "Time" ones feel a bit more suited to Celestials and Inevitables/Modrons/Etc., as elementals tend to be a bit more chaotic than that.

    Also, I can only assume that the actual appearance of a Time elemental would be basically a clockwork elemental, or something like that.

    That's like the second time I've said it in my whole life. The full explanation is here (warning: TVTropes link), but the short answer is that Dr. Watson was the narrator of the Sherlock Holmes stories, who explained thing using in-universe logic, while Arthur Conan Doyle was the author, who had an out-of-universe perspective.

    So essentially, I'm giving both an in-character justification and a metagame reason for the design choice.

    Really? Huh. Now I feel somewhat stupid. I'd seen you use it here, and in another thread recently, and (incorrectly, clearly) thought that I'd seen you use it in other threads recently then as well. My apologies for making the assumption.

    That's actually a rather interesting method of doing that. I might have to try it out myself some time.
