Varying terrain

  • Earth — this area is considered difficult terrain
  • Fire — any creature that starts its turn here suffers 1d6 fire damage
  • Water — it is just a huge body of water. If a creature enters this area, it starts to sink into the water unless it can swim
  • Air — literally just a giant hole in the ground
