There are 11 Elements that the clans are aligned to. Dragons of any alignment may join any clan, however any offspring from a dragon of a differing element will be born of the same element as the clan they were born into; so, for example, if an earth dragon mated with an arcane dragon and they were in a fire clan, all of their offspring would be born as fire dragons.
Each element has its own strengths and weaknesses, as such it might be worth bringing in dragons of other elements into your clan, despite the fact that their offspring will be born with the element of your clan.
