Learn the spell WildShape:
R: 0; T: self; D: permanent until dismissed
You polymorph into an animal you have personally killed and eaten from. You can only transform into animals of HD up to twice yours. You gain all abilities and limitations of your new form, you cannot cast spells or use your normal abilities.
At 1 [die], you can only assume forms of natural animals, no more than twice your size, or less than half. At 2 [dice] you can transform into any size of animal. At 3 [dice], you can also transform into giant, dire or mutant animals, or swarms. At 4 [dice], you can shapeshift into magical beasts.
You get -2 to reaction rolls from civilized people, and +2 from animals and people in tune with nature.
After eating cooked food you lose the ability to wildshape for 1d6 hours.
Make a save after eating the meat of an animal to learn a skill related to them. Eating a venomous snake might teach you “poisoner”, eating a beaver might teach you “logger”. You can also understand the language of any animal you eat.
You can cast spells and use abilities while Wildshaped, unless it wouldn’t make sense.
When you wildshape, you can shapeshift only a part of your body, gaining whatever effect would be appropriate.
For example, you could transform your legs into ones of a kangaroo, or the eyes of an owl, the fangs of a viper, a turtle shell, the gills of a fish, etc. You can also use this power to combine various animal forms, or to transform into a half-human beastman.
Dooms These can be reversed by killing and eating an animal with twice your HD.
