30 Days of Dark Sun 7: What's your favorite element?

What’s your favorite element(earth, air, fire, water, paraelements are ok)?

Favorite Element

Earth Aire Fire and Water

The 7th day of #30DaysofDarkSun is here and the question is "What is your Favorite Element?".

The flames have always called to me. The cleric writeups in Earth, Air, Fire, & Water blew my mind. The details on how and why people worshiped the elements instead of the gods was masterful. The idea that flame is a cleansing force while also destructive is fantastic. I always described healing spells cast by a flame cleric causing pain and leaving scars despite healing the wound.

Robert Schwalb,designer for 4th edition Dark Sun and creator of Shadow of the Demon Lord, had this to say, "Rain! I have vivid memories of Rain priests being prickly. I can’t recall if this was in the elemental book, but I recall a rain priest guarding a tree from whose branches hung people who pissed him off. "
