Yeah, that sounds about right. I think they tweaked the rules after AD&D to keep high level mages from abusing the polymorph spell. I mean, kind of anticlimactic to turn Tiamat into a mouse and then feed it to the cat. Now having the mouse turn back into a very angry 5 headed dragon again after being ate? There's an interesting story... (poor puddy tat! )

But you could grab the frog and run deep into the mines and then throw it down a hole. Once it poofed into its original shape it might get stuck down there.

I think true polymorph can be permanent, but also like a level 8 or 9 spell and there are saves to mitigate it. It's also unlikely it would work on an enemy that's actively fighting since it takes an hour to stick. It's an option though :)

What if we were to do a temporary polymorph, then use it's weakened form to do a permanent one, though? :shifty:

If we true poly it into anything, it should be gold/platinum. That way we get moneys out of it.

No, we should just transform it into a chicken, and then keep the final boss monster as a pet. :P

Why a chicken? Why not something slightly less delicious?

Nah, we want it to think that if it ends up being just a bit TOO annoying, that we can always just get a nice fire going...

:P I'm sold. Seems like this is a solid plan to be put into action around in about 10 years? :P

Ulmwin's the most likely candidate to be able to get to True Polymorph...

Hahahaha! I have a true-polymorphed creature roaming around my D&D universe that I kind of love :) no-one's met it yet though and I might be the only one who finds it funny.

Oh well, maybe one day!

Also not on the druid spell list, so there's that too... :(

Bard, Warlock or Wizard, 9th level spell, so other than Ulmwin, anyone else would have to multiclass at 4th level in order to get to 9th level spells by 20th level.

You potentially get access to Shapechange.

Locked out of Archdruid at this point, not that planning for level 20 is all that productive.

Wizard/warlock, huh? Provided Holger doesn't blow himself/everyone up in the meantime, he might be able to do it too. However, I'm not sure I'm willing to bet on those odds at the moment. :P

Yeah I don't think Nem is going to invest enough in wizardry to get there. One or two levels will be enough I think.

Holger won't reach it either. I'll take 3 or 5 levels in warlock and the rest in sorcerer. I have to 1 up Tess' familiar with a pseudo dragon from warlock at least :lol:

Hah, nice! :D

How does a warforged druid work? Like, what's the in-universe explanation for a mechanical creation being able to wildshape and such?
