Casting Time:
3 segments
2 turns/level
Saving Throw:
Area of Effect:
The magic-user
When this spell is cast, the magic-user is able to assume the form of any creature — from as small as a wren to as large as a hippopotamus — and its form of locomotion as well. The spell does not give the other abilities (attack, magic, etc.), nor does it run the risk of changing personality and mentality. No “system shock” check is required. Thus, a magic- user changed to an owl could fly, but his or her vision would be human; a change to a black pudding would enable movement under doors or along halls and ceilings, but not the pudding’s offensive or defensive capabilities. Naturally, the strength of the new form must be sufficient to allow normal movement. The spell caster can change his or her form as often as desired, the change requiring only 5 segments. Damage to the polymorphed form is computed as if it were inflicted upon the magic-user, but when the magic-user returns to his or her own form, from 1 to 12 (d12) points of damage are restored.
