What is your favorite elemental themed creature?

Krag by Baxa

The 17th day of #30DaysofDarkSun is here and the question is "What is your favorite elemental themed creature?"

I always enjoy the creatures that really feel like they have a place in the setting. With the four elements having such a huge role, the idea that if an Elemental Cleric died in the element that opposed their element they would become an undead was fantastic. Therefore, the Krag is my favorite elemental themed creature.

Earth Elemental Beastby Baxa

Tom Baxa was one of two artists that had a major impact on the Dark Sun setting. Here's what Tom had to say about Elemental Themed creatures, Earth elementals are one of my all time favorite type of monster to paint, especially in the DS campaign setting. They can be a conglomeration of rock and soil and mud formed into any body type. They can also be more amorphous like a flow of gravel and sand. Lotsa ideas and forms to play with. This one is from the Dark Sun Monstrous Compendium II circa 1994! I’m thrilled that people are still enjoying the Dark Sun setting that meant so much to me.
