An Energy human warrior

Energy Template:
The Energy Template: can be add to any non-Elemental:
Size and type: Size remain unchanged, type change to Elemental with the Mixed subtype (see spoiler) and the Air, Earth, Fire and Water subtype.
Elemental (Mixed):
Unlike normal Elemental, Mixed are composed of all four basic element, as a result they are very similar to normal living creature. This also give them a number of the same drawback.
-Vision: Mixed donít have Darkvision
- Immunities: Unlike normal Elemental, Mixed are not immune to Paralysis or Stunning effects. They are still immune to Poison and Sleep, and additionally immune to non-magical Disease, Nausea, Fatigue, Exhaustion, and effects that cause the Sickened condition. Magical or supernatural sources of these effects may affect them as usual.
- Critical Hits: Unlike normal Elemental, Mixed are susceptible to critical hits and flanking. They do have a discernable (if exotic) anatomy.
Anyone used to picking out opponents' weak points will recognized those of a Mixed most notably the zone where the various element that composed them are joined.
- Eating, Drinking, Sleeping, and Breathing: Like most Elemental, Mixed do not need to sleep (though general rest is necessary to regain spells and similar abilities), but can usually passively absorb enough ambient magical energy from most places to replace the needs to eat or breathe
- Unlike normal Elemental, Mixed souls and body are separate and they can be raised or ressurect normaly.


Hit Dice: All racial Hit dice (including those gain after the application of this template) become d8

Base Attack Bonus: Bab change to 3/4 racial Hit dice

Special abilities: An Energy retains all the base creature special abilities and Elemental Connection

Special qualities: An Energy lose all the trait from its previous type but otherwise keep all the base creature special qualities and gain Resistance to Acid, Cold, Electricity and Fire equal to 5+1 per HD above five. Example a 7HD creature as Resistance 7

Base save Bonus: An Energy gain a good Fortitude and Reflex save, Will become poor

Skills: 2+Int per hit dice (x4 for the first)

Challenge Rating: +1

Level adjustement: +1

Elemental Connection An Energy gain one of the two following ability chosen at the time this template is gained.
-Elemental magic(Su): An Energy with this ability cast spell or spell-like ability with the Air, Earth, Fire or Water descriptor at a +1 caster level. (Special: This also apply to manifesting power or psi-like ability)
-Elemental conversion(Su): An Energy with this ability can choose to convert the damage he deal with any weapon (including natural weapon or ranged weapon) into Acid, Cold, Electricity or Fire damage. This is a free action once the choice is made all attack made until the start of the Energy next turn are of the chosen energy type. This ability doesnít influence in any way the weapon special ability so an Energy using a +1 Flaming Longsword can convert the damage of the longsword into cold damage but the flaming property still deal fire damage. An Energy can use this ability a number of time per day equal to 3 + her constitution modifier

Special: An Energy with cleric level (or any base classe that grant acces to one or more domain) can always chose to select the Air, Earth, Fire or Water domain even if his deity doesnít offer these domain.


*Note on cosmetic change: An energy body change dramatically now made of all four element. They still retain their previous shape, the fire don't burn anything, the air is solid to the touch but it's impossible to mistake them for anything else.

Under Elemental Preference: Fire, you don't state what happens if the attacker fails their reflex save. I'm assuming some sort of fire damage, but I'm not sure.
