Query: is metal considered part of the earth element, and is lightning considered to be part of the air or fire elements (or neither)?

Neither metal or electricity can be manipulated by Element Attune. The substance manipulated must be a pure sample of earth, air, water, or fire.
While I can understand the lightning, why not metal? "Earth", after all, is a conglomeration of minerals, many of which are metals, and it's not even like it's going to be the same mixture everywhere, not even close. What would mark the barrier between earth and metal? Is it once you smelt down the ore? Is it once there's a distinguishable quantity of one material all by itself? Is it after it's been worked into a man-made form? I mean, I can understand the idea behind a "pure sample" of air (kind of; there's plenty of gasses, but they're all pretty much mixed into a uniform mixture across the entire atmosphere), or water, or fire, but "pure earth" just doesn't compute.

Also, I'm using Elemental Master, not the basic Elemental Attune.

You exist within a world of mist and angels. The divine realm.
You are surrounded by opaque white mist, and there is no up or down. All around you you can spot the burning pinpricks of other angels going about their business, visible through the fog thanks to their brightness you and your connection to them.
Focusing in on the fog near you, you can break through; gain a momentary glimpse into the material realm. You reach in and make a small adjustment. Then you zip through the mist to your next task.

Presently you hear the voice of LYTHR'HYMN, your Observer, cut through the air, directing a message to you.

NIJI's tiny form gracefully moves to be briefed by the Observer. Upon arrival NIJI begins screaming at those gathered.
<NIJI FRIENDLY GREET. EXCITED!>
NIJI then addresses Observer LYTHR'HYMN.
<OB-SERVER LYN: WHAT DO? FLY, YES? FIGHT, YES?>

NIJI REPORTS!

Report in.

A humanoid form of shifting sand and steel appears, the only constants being a red blindfold over where the eyes would be, a quarterstaff clutched in the right hand, and a pair of raven’s wings attached to the back.

What is required?

LYTHR'HYMN trains one sub-observation organ on each of you as you arrive. Once it is satisfied that a large enough has gathered, it recalls those observation organs and instead splits the focus of its primary observation organ between you. The single voice organ that it has committed speaks.
