Earth Elementals are supernatural creatures native to the Elemental Plane of Earth. They are usually only found on the Material Plane or other worlds after being summoned by mages, priests or other spellcasters.
Earth elementals are hulking creatures composed entirely of the stone, earth and even minerals of the area in which they are summoned. They have large, hunched upper bodies with powerful arms and spikes protruding from their backs. The lesser variety is roughly between a human and a dwarf in height (but considerably stockier and bulkier than both), while the standard earth elemental is larger than even an ogre and as wide as a wagon.
