Element-touched is an inherited or acquired template that can be added to any living, corporeal creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature). An element-touched creature is a creature that has been infused with one of the four elemental planes (Air, Earth, Fire, or Water). An element-touched creature retains all the base creatures statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

CR: 5 HD or more, as base creature +1.

Type: The creature gains either the air, earth, fire, or water subtype, according to its indicated element. 

Special Abilities: The creature gains resistance 10 to the indicated energy type (see below), and gains a spell-like ability usable once per day, as shown on the table below. The creature's caster level for its spell-like ability is equal to its hit dice, and the DC of its spell-like ability is Con-based.
