As a Wild Mage, your power is dangerous and unpredictable. The power that courses through your veins manifests as spells and effects from the Elementalism school, but the specific effects are often random. Whenever you begin an Encounter, roll 1d10 and consult the following chart:

  1. Petrifying.
  2. Force.
  3. Acid.
  4. Cold.
  5. Poison.
  6. Psionic.
  7. Lightning.
  8. Thunder.
  9. Radiant.
  10. Fire.

This is your spell source's damage type until the end of the encounter, or until you achieve a critical hit. After each critical hit that you achieve, you must re-roll your spell source's damage type.

Elemental Magic manipulates the raw forces and materials of the physical world. All Elemental spells have one of five elemental aspects: earth, water, wood, wind, or flame; and have one of two polarity aspects: yin and yang. An elemental attack spell's damage types and effects are always based on its element and polarity, while elemental utility spells take advantage of the secondary properties of the elements. Some arcane healing magics are elemental in nature, usually utilizing properties of the element of wood.

Many elemental attack spells listed here list their damage type as 'Elemental'. When you prepare such a spell, you may choose one of ten options, based on your available material components. Each type of elemental damage also has a specific arcane affliction tied to it. An Elemental spell becomes Petrifying (earth/petrification), Rending (earth/force), Freezing (water/cold), Dissolving (water/acid), Choking (wood/poison), Enthralling (wood/psychic), Booming (wind/thunder), Shocking (wind/lightning), Flaming (flame/fire), or Shimmering (flame/radiant), depending on the type chosen. When you cast the spell, it causes damage and elemental afflictions (if any) of the chosen type.
