The mage (or her subject) can fully take on the form of another
creature. While the spell can greatly transform its subject’s Size,
changing into much larger forms is difficult. The Scale factor
of the spell must cover the larger of the Size traits, before and
after the transformation.
The subject’s clothes and gear do not change, and she must
also contend with powerful instincts in the animal form. When
confronted by circumstances that would trigger a strong instinctive
response, such as a male lion’s need to kill all competitors’
cubs, or if the subject is hungry in bear form and faced with
a prey animal, she must roll Composure + Resolve reflexively
to avoid acting on these impulses. Failure means that she
gives in to the primal urges until they’re satisfied. Mages add
Gnosis to this roll, and other supernatural beings add their
own Tolerance Traits.
+1 Reach: The subject takes on a swarm form and maintains
control of hundreds or thousands of tiny creatures. See the
+1 Reach: The subject retains full control of her reason and
doesn’t have to fight instinctive urges.
