PC abilities while in Animal Form
« on: September 09, 2016, 05:45:49 PM »
When a PC casts the Animal Form spell, does she retain the abilities of the PC in human form?

Devils and Vampires are listed that they do. Werewolves may at higher levels. No mention is made for spell-based shape changes.

It depends on the animal.  It physically changes the shape of the animal.  It grants roughly the animals physical attributes.  The PC can retain its HP.   So, a cats will be able to be fall on all four feet, and a wolf will have sharp teeth that does damage. 

As for the skills, that becomes complicated.  The skills are retained, but the question becomes as to if they are usable.  It depends on what is being attempted could be done in that body.  So, most animals would not be able to do thieving skills or engineering.  However, knowledge would be retained.
