'''Elements''' are categories for [[:Category:Skill|skill]]. Certain individuals possess a [[elemental resistance]] or [[immunity]] to one element or another; and most psy users possess an [[affinity]] for one of the four types of particle manipulation, dependent on their personality.
+
Elements in the Telepath RPG games can be classified as follows:
   
=Physical=
 
These are ordinary attacks using solid weapons, such as: swords, bows, knives, and etc.
 
   
===Pierce===
+
'''Physical''' -- This refers simply to ordinary attacks using solid weapons.
Piercing damage is done by weapons such as spears, bolts, knives, and arrows.
 
   
===Slash===
+
'''Mental''' -- These attacks are purely mind-based, relying on manipulating and damaging the opponent's mind from within.
Slashing damage is done by weapons bladed weapons such as swords.
 
   
===Crush===
+
'''Heat''' -- These attacks are pyrokinetic in nature. The attacker speeds up molecules in the air until he or she produces fire that can be used to scorch opponents.
Crush damage is caused by bludgeoning weapons.
 
   
=Psychic=
+
'''Cold''' -- These attacks are cryokinetic in nature. The attacker slows down molecules in the air until he or she can freeze opponents.
===Mental===
 
These attacks are purely mind-based, relying on manipulating and damaging the opponent's mind from within.
 
   
===Shield===
+
'''Shadow''' -- An offshoot of mental attacks, shadow attacks give physical form to negative emotions, bombarding opponents with a corrosive miasma.
Shields are mental techniques that create psychokinetic barriers that resist every possible type of damage. Described "like hitting a[n invisible] wall."
 
   
==Particle Manipulation==
+
'''Light''' -- These attacks rely upon intense radiation coupled with percussive force. The attacker concentrates and accelerates electromagnetic particles to damage opponents on a cellular level, then releases them in a shockwave.
There are four psy elements that works via psychokinetic particle manipulation.
 
   
===Heat===
 
These attacks are pyrokinetic in nature. The attacker speeds up molecules in the air until he or she produces fire that can be used to scorch opponents.
 
   
===Cold===
+
Certain attacks do not precisely match the descriptions given above, but are classified according to one element or another depending on what most closely matches its effect.
These attacks are cryokinetic in nature. The attacker slows down molecules in the air until he or she can freeze opponents or throw jagged ice at enemies.
 
   
===Shadow===
+
Certain characters may possess [[Resistance]] (or in [[Telepath RPG 3]], [[Immunity]]) to one element or another.
These attacks are skiakinetic in nature. An offshoot of mental attacks, shadow attacks give physical form to negative emotions, breaking apart water vapor in the air and forming a highly corrosive miasma.
 
 
===Light===
 
These attacks are photokinetic in nature. These attacks rely upon intense electromagnetic radiation coupled with percussive force. The attacker charges and concentrates photons so that they will damage opponents on a cellular level, then releases them in a shockwave. Light is widely considered to be the most difficult element to learn, as it requires the manipulation of particles orders of magnitude smaller than those used by the other elemental attacks.
 
 
=Miscellaneous=
 
===Falling===
 
This element refers to skills that move other characters around; this includes skills like Shove, Throw, Kinetic Gust and Gravity Spike. Falling attacks deal damage based on falling from heights, and bypass ordinary character defenses. Falling attacks are useful in forcing enemies into environmental hazards.
 
 
===Move===
 
Movement skills move the user to the target space, typically bypassing obstacles in
 
the process. Movement skills can be used to supplement a character's ordinary maximum movement.
 
 
===Create===
 
Create skills spawn a character or object on the battlefield.
 
 
===Explosive===
 
Explosive attacks are technological in nature, and they bypass ordinary character defenses. Explosive attacks deal 5x damage to every destructible object in range (including explosive Charges!) Explosive attacks are far and away the most effective attacks for destroying walls and bridges.
