  • Electric Body. The aetherspawn is an air elemental, wreathing the air within 5 ft. around itself with electricity. Anyone who comes within 5 ft. of an aetherspawn takes 5 (1d10) lightning damage. Anyone who makes contact with or attacks the aetherspawn in melee suffers an additional 5 (1d10) lightning damage.
  • Weaknesses. The aetherspawn is susceptible to tremors that disturb the air around it. When hit with an earthquake or shifting terrain, they dissolve for three rounds and cannot act until they reform.


  • Multiattack. The spawn makes two attacks per round.
  • Whirlwind. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d8 + 3) bludgeoning damage. If the target is prone, they take double damage.


Created from a magical seed, spawn grow when planted into an element. There are four common types of spawn; terraspawn, cryospawn, infernospawn, and aetherspawn, though some legends speak of shadowspawn, lightspawn, and deathspawn as well.

Spawn are under the control of the one who planted them and invoked the spell. One elemental rises for each seed planted and they act collectively on the invoker’s initiative. They revert back to seeds after ten minutes, or upon reaching 0 hit points. The spawn can be invoked again a day later, if the seed was not destroyed.
