I've also got a summon ally table for elementals in mind, as I really like the idea of an Elementalist mage with awesome summoning powers. But at the moment (using the existing monster lists) it's an extremely sparse list:
- Veteran: Elemental
Yeah, needs a bit of filling out. The Border elementals from the Fantasy Companion will of course be in there, but I've got to decide if they're of equal or lesser rank than the normal elementals. Various kind of demi-elemental creatures could also probably be added (like Salamanders, and possibly Djinni / Efreet), but that's only part of the way. I'm going to need to create some new elemental creatures. Here are some ideas:
- More border elementals. I don't know why, but I find them really cool, and love the idea of more of them. We've got lava, mud, sand and steam. How about (consulting the AD&D list of para & quasi elemental planes...) smoke, ice, lightning, ash, dust and salt?
- Lesser elementals. I've coined the name "elementines" for these creatures. The intention is to make some creatures that can be summoned by Novice elementalists.
- Greater elementals. I'm not sure how powerful these should go, have to think about it.
