You attempt to transform the target creature into a harmless animal appropriate to the area, with effects based on its Fortitude save.

  • Success The target’s body gains minor features of the harmless animal. Its insides churn, causing it to be sick 1. When it recovers from the sickness, its features revert to normal.
  • Critical Success The target is unaffected.
  • Failure The target transforms for 1 minute but keeps its mind. It can spend all its actions on its turn concentrating on its original form, granting it a Will save to end the effect.
  • Critical Failure The target is transformed into the chosen harmless animal, body and mind, for 1 day.

Heightened (8th) On a Critical Failure, the duration is unlimited.
