These polls are really making me think more in depth about elements lore, I really like it!

Also, a few thoughts:
I see False Gods as being Elementals who lived for such a long time, and amassed enough power, that could do whatever they want - if it weren't for the other False Gods. They all have their own priorities, and seek to advance them by making alliances and stuff. However, they made an agreement that they won't use their powers directly, because of the devastation it would cause, so they just do lots of manipulative stuff from the background.
Also, I see Elementals as being rare. Like, not every creature has the potential to be one, and not all those that do realise it.

I really enjoy this, it sends short story ideas racing through my mind!
How wonderful that we have met with a paradox.
Now we have some hope of making progress. -Niels Bohr

I'm just going to put this here, it's the official description of elementals from the interview with Zanzarino.

  • Entropic elementals do now have a defined form; they look fluid, ever-changing in shape. Entropy itself works like a force that separates and creates random entities at the same time, like dropping some black ink in a glass of clear water, what is that thing that created all of those strange shapes within the water? Entropy.

  • Death elementals are often made of what’s left from a living creature after its demise, you can picture them as made of bones, but that would be simplistic, most of them are made of a liquid similar to petroleum or a solid similar to coal. They often look like frail skinny figures, but they will not die if you stick a knife where you think their heart should be, in fact, the best way to hurt them is to try to heal them – burning them might be an option. Death is that force that incessantly infects, ruins, poisons and causes a living thing to finally give up; it forces them to attempt to create an offspring before too much damage is done to preserve the spark of life. Do not judge it as an evil force; it is also what keeps the death/ life cycle of the universe in motion.

  • Gravity elementals are chunky, dense, heavy beings, somewhat similar to sumo wrestlers. They control that force that pulls you close to another object and its direction. They can decide to make themselves a center of gravity making you fall toward them; or they can decide to put that center of gravity somewhere else in the space and they can simply fall there, instead of walking. They ultimately control acceleration, and the motion of anything around them. Gravity works sometime as the opposite of entropy, remember that drop of ink dissolving in the glass of water? Gravity elementals could turn it back into a perfect sphere of ink suspended in the middle of the water.

Also keep in mind that Metamorphosis (changing your mark) used to cost 250 electrum, and you can get a better idea of how the world works.

 Zanz's description is nice but it reveals way too few things. It doesn't explain the creatures, permanents and spells used by elementals, it doesn't explain the world or the landscape. Moreover, is this the one and only true form of the listed elementals? What about human beings? Do they exist?
 I create a picture of an "Ever-Changing Chaos of Limbo" or an "Elemental Chaos" world but this is just not enough for me. I need to know more about this world of elements, even if I have to create that knowledge from scratch...

I see False Gods as the evil in the world of Elements; they have absurd power and Elementalists fighting for the good of the world must discover clever ways of defeating them (FG killers like Limitless Speed, Firecell, etc.) False Gods proclaim themselves as gods, but this is just their arrogance and narcissism coming through.
