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. This allows them a wider variety of shifting abilities using their magic and self-transmutation spells, but typically means their spell selection becomes more easily jumbled.


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


Note: Unless otherwise stated, all targetted spells have a fortitude save for transmuting anything not in your party.
