Talk:Devolve Person (3.5e Spell)
Is it a save each round (making it a save or lose, with a rare chance at death) or one save?
- Well, each round you get hit with what is functionally a worse Baleful Poly, so you could Dispel the progression at least since it's not Permanent. That would leave you in a permanently altered form, but not on the route to death and you could fix the poly in the standard fashion. It's unclear what happens if you reset the polymorph path without dispelling it though. If you polymorphed a reptilian subtyped creature from a T-Rex back to a regular reptilian subtyped creature, it still has 3 rounds of transformations left and ends at a T-Rex maybe? Which is a weird roundabout way to get that sort of permanent change :-/ - Tarkisflux Talk 04:05, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
- Hmm, I'm not sure that works. Wouldn't a successful dispel straight up dispel the whole thing, rather than arrest its progression? As far as I can tell it's not Instant... though if it was, I probably would frown at that.
Just wondering, would you be interested in working with me to make the evolutionary back-tracking more accurate? Lizards going back and turning into a T-Rex is bugging me, haha. Avian creatures would make more sense to have a dinosaur in the process.188.8.131.52 10:17, 18 October 2017 (MDT)
