 blocks of life as their instruments though whether you
do so to protect and defend your allies, or to cause

 excruciating suffering to your enemies is up to you.
Many architects grow up in abject loneliness, not
knowing from whence their power came, and being

 misunderstood by those around them. There is a small
surviving school of architects that existed before the

 great purging, perhaps you were found by them early and
grow up in their care.
Regardless of how you were raised, you were born

 with an innate connection to the very power that drove
the Primordials. Yours is a path to greatness, if you can
survive the turmoil that such power brings.

Elemental Soul

You were born with a special connection to the earth.


Not a connection with the spirits, or nature like those of
the primal persuasion; the earth itself, the physical
rudiments of the world. You have a control over them
that borders on muscle reflex. Without thinking, you can
raise a tide to wash away your foes; open the earth to
swallow them; or command a raging fire to consume
them.
From whence this connection arises you many not
know or understand. You have some bond with
primordial forces that shaped the earth, but you are
neither a devotee nor servant of the Primordials
themselves. Your powers do not come through worship
of these pseudo-Gods but through your own connection
to the powers they wield.
Perhaps, in time, you may come to wield these abilities
with such force that the Primordials themselves may
tremble at your footsteps.

earth around you. Depending on your choice of

harnessing them you can call forth minions crafted
from elemental forces or change the terrain of the

but unlike those who seek guidance from the divine, you
read fate by following the ribbons left from the design of
the Primordials. Although many of the creatures that
now inhabit the world are creations of the Astral Gods
you can still see their place in the tapestry of the
Primordials.
Your control of the chaos is such to make others
envious. You can summon willful minions crafted from
components of the Elemental Chaos. These minions
follow your commands explicitly, but are also able to act
on their own will. The terrain of the world around you is
also a force you can use to confound and harry your foes;
transforming the very world itself into your expression
of power. These transformations are not fickle powers
that dissipate over time; they remain as your mark upon
the world.
Using your minions and your terrain altering powers
you have a vast ability to control the battlefield, forcing
simple pawns into vice gripped traps, and causing
dazzling displays of rampant energy. There are few who
excel more than you at wide burst of damage.

Stalwart guardian's of ancient fortresses, secret


conclaves, and Elemental domains, the sentinel's were
the original guardian's of other Elemental classes. They
often were paired with an onmyouji or an architect as
their front guard.
Sentinel's embody more than anyone the chaotic nature
of the power they channel. They are born with a chaotic
flow seeping through every pore that constantly
changes the way that they interact with the world. You
can summon weapons to wield from the Chaos or even
bind yourself with Elemental creatures.
From the very beginning of their existence, they have
been beset with a mutable and untamed nature. Over
time, they learned to control it, to adapt to, and so they
codified it. Taking after the chimera, they termed each
aspect after a part of the monster: the lion, the serpent,
the dragon and the ram.
Now, sentinels are a rare and disappearing breed. You
may be the only sentinel you know, cast out of your
town, your home, because of your nature. Or you may be
a part of one of the last vestiges of a society of sentinels.
