The Simple RPG for Everything

ELEMENTAL is a fast and flexible roleplaying game for any character, any setting, any story.

The game is designed for the characters and stories you want to play. It features a very approachable game system and a wealth of playable content spanning multiple genres. So whatever movies, books, comics or TV shows you’re into, ELEMENTAL gives you the tools to quickly and easily turn any source of inspiration into an exciting game experience.

"The system runs simply but covers a huge range of situations." -EN World.

Beyond the core game, ELEMENTAL is actively supported by a growing collection of ready-to-play adventures and monsters, including many by celebrated RPG creators like Greg Stolze (Unknown Armies), Patrick Stuart (Veins of the Earth), Will Doyle (Tomb of Annihilation) and Stacey Allan (Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden).

Hi Guys! DO you have a forum or discord place to contact you? I have some ruling questions that I do not get much, specially as I am translating into spanish.

For example, you mention that spells are cast then you do a damage roll, but some spells do DAM 0, what is the damage of it? for example bazrak missile. How much damage it does per missile? it says DAM 0. How you calculate the damage there? Any help will be appreciated as it falls upon me to translate for my players haha.

Hi Jorge! The easiest way to get in touch with us is to send us an email, you’ll find the address on page 2 or 3 of any of our titles. There’s also a small group of friendly fans on Facebook (“ELEMENTAL RPG”), including Spanish speakers.

Regarding your specific question, remember that the damage roll is an attribute roll like any other, so just roll 1d6 and add DAM, in this case 0 (zero). If a 6 is rolled, you would normally get a second roll to add to the result (a “break”), however this does not happen in this case because the underlying attribute is 0 (as explained on pg. 13). Hope this helps!

Check this out. It's a freebie so there's no risk, and it will give you a good taste of Elemental.
It's an easy system with a depth of options and great possibilities.
If you like this, get the Elemental Complete Guide. It's regular price is currently showing $14.99. I admit I got it when it was on a drivethrurpg sale event, but it's still well worth the full price in my opinion, which is still a lot lower than many other RPGs.
Besides, the Discovery Guide is much like other peoples Quickstarts in that you get to try it out with some of the stuff and see how it works and feels, and for free.

On a sidenote, the people making and playing Elemental are friendly and helpful. Something that's always a plus. (Unfortunately not all game makers are like that.)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
