Transmutant Overview

Much like how Shifters are druids who take their shape-shifting to their logical extremes, Transmutants are transmuters who focus on the ability for magic to change their very essence, those around them, and even reality itself. This allows them a wider variety of shifting and support abilities using their magic and self-transmutation spells, but typically means their spell selection becomes more easily jumbled.

Most transmutant forms are based off the Shifter and Druid versions and work as such unless otherwise noted. [[1]]

Ranks

1 - Alternate Forms: Elemental and Basic Shifter Forms

2 - Alternate Forms: Polymorph Self (Shifter and other Forms), Tenser's Variation (Nightstalker's Transformation)

3 - Alternate Forms: Shapechange (Ancient Coal Dragon, Mithril Golem, etc.), Blackstaff Magic Boost
