The cleric is a free-willed priest, tending the needs of the local people with his particular talents. On Athas, clerics draw their magical energy directly from one of the four elemental planes: earth, air, fire, or water; not from any manner of deity.

Class Features

You get all the class features from the Cleric class as presented in the PHB, unless noted otherwise.

As presented in the PHB, but replace Religion skill for Nature.

Elemental Domain

The Divine Domain feature is renamed as Elemental Domain. The four elemental domains available to you are Earth, Air, Fire or Water. Each elemental domain is detailed at the end of the class description. Other than that, this feature works as presented in the PHB.

Elemental Spells
This Domain Spells feature is renamed as Elemental Spells. Extra spells are granted at 11th, 13th and 15th level because some of the cleric spells have been removed from the PHB list.
Other than that, this feature works as presented in the PHB.

Channel Energy

The Channel Divinity feature is renamed as Channel Energy. Other than that, this feature works as presented in the PHB.

Primordial Intervention

The Divine Intervention feature is renamed as Primordial Intervention. You call for the intervention of a powerful being of the element you worship, instead of a deity. Other than that, this feature works as presented in the PHB.

Elemental Domains

Clerics worship one of the four elemental planes: earth, air, fire, or water. They call upon magical energies from those planes, specializing in one element’s magical applications on the prime material plane.

Earth Domain

Rock, sand, trees, silt: everything of earth is raw material for earth clerics. It is their duty to protect and preserve these, and they constantly strive to enrich and shield the harsh wastes of Athas.
Closely tied to nature, earth priests understand the true nature of the cycle of life. When something dies, its organic material is returned to the soil to provide life for another, and in another form. Therefore, the earth clerics’ outlook on life is a utilitarian one. The death of a comrade, though tragic, is simply one stage in nature’s endless chain of creation and annihilation.
Earth clerics must always be in opposition to defilers. They know that defiling magic lies beyond the normal boundary of the creation/annihilation chain—what defilers destroy never returns.
