Elemental
  • Elemental creatures are native to the Elemental Chaos or the Abyss. They are strongly tied to elemental energies or substances.

Fey
  • Fey creatures are native to the Feywild.

Immortal
  • Immortal creatures are native to the Astral Sea. They include angels, devils, and other creatures with strong ties to the gods. They do not age or die of natural causes.

Natural
