This spell transforms you a new form and the new form must be any of the following types : animal or magical beast. You can’t choose to transform you into a swarm, incorporeal, or gazeous form. The new form must keep the same size category and can’t have more Hit Dice than your HD.

The transformation lasts for the spell duration, or until you drop your hit points to 0 or die. Your game statistics, including Wisdom, and Charisma ability scores, are replaced by the statistics of the chosen new form, but you retains your own intelligence. You also retains your alignment and personality.

You assume the hit points of your new form. When you revert to your normal form, you returns to the number of hit points you had before you transformed. If you revert as a result of dropping to 0 hit points, any excess damage carries over to your normal form. As long as the excess damage doesn't reduce your normal form to 0 hit points, you're not unconscious. You are limited in the actions you can perform by the nature of your new form.

Your equipment meld into the new form. You can't activate, use, wield, or otherwise benefit from any of your equipment.

You can also assume a Humanoid or a Monstrous humanoid form, but only with the Anthro subtype. If you choose a race and not a creature, make the changes excluding INT. Racials HD are added to your character and counts in the calculation of the total Hit Dice after the transformation as if you had chosen a creature with higher HD. For example, if you have a character with 15 HD and you choose a Leode with 2 racials HD, it's counted as having a total of 17 HD. You are therefore forced to choose the spell's option which permit to choose a creature whose HD are equal to your character's HD +2 (option +4). These racials HD give you extra HP for the duration of the spell only, and become temporary HP at the end of the spell. Your equipment are not meld into the new form. You can activate, use, and wield your equipment, but if the size category has been changed, penalties and bonuses may apply to the new form.
