dnd 5e – If I cast True Polymorph on my sim and focus for the entire duration, will Simulacrum launch again still destroy it?

Simulacrum state:

If you recast this spell, any currently active duplicates you created with this spell are instantly destroyed.

Does this mean that if I take my drill and transform it permanently using true polymorph in, let's say, a dragon, that if I throw simulacrum again, would that dragon I just produced instantly destroy?

dnd 3.5e – Polymorph and equipment. How does it work?

What happens when polymorphs into a creature that has a specific weapon and uses it to attack? I am not referring to natural weapons.

As Alter Self says:

You acquire the physical qualities of the new form while retaining your own mind. Physical qualities include life size, worldly movement abilities, natural armor bonus, natural weapons, racial skill bonuses, racial bonus feats, and any rude physical qualities.


When the change occurs, your equipment, if any, remains worn or held by the new shape (if you are able to wear or hold the item), or it melts into the new shape and stops working. When you return to your true form, any object previously combined in the new form reappears in the same location on your body it previously occupied and becomes functional again.

So, from what I can read, nothing refers to the team that could have the new form. If I polymorph into a demon using a sword, will I get that weapon for as long as the spell is active? No, right?

dnd 5e: How does Truesight affect a changer so that it grows / contracts like a polymorph dragon?

When looking for this answer, I found this publication that is similar, although my question is more cosmetic than functional …

Truesight's sense states:

A monster with the truth can […] perceive the original form of a
shape changer or a creature that is transformed by magic.

Many dragons, like the ancient bronze dragon have the action:

Change shape The magically polymorphic dragon in a humanoid or beast that has a challenge rating no higher than its own, or returns to
It is his true form.

I have always thought of Seeing true as simply seeing things as they are in this sense, as seeing the white complexion of a changeling. However, while watching this dragon trait, I came up with something that seems strange to me:
A wyrmling is medium sized, which means there may not be much difference in height, but an ancient dragon is gigantic, which means that its true shape would be quite massive

So, trying to visualize how this would seem tends to create certain problems:

  • The size of a now smaller dragon could fit into spaces that a large dragon could not
  • If the dragon used a form with additional limbs, such as a spider, would they appear to the creature with Truesight?
  • Given the difference in size, how would you aim at the dragon?

Given that, I wonder How would Truesight work on a creature whose size changes, like the dragon? Would you see a small dragon 6 to 7 feet tall? or be looking at space while talking to him?

Another example of this is a polymorph Tyrannosaurus … Would the creature of truth gain a disadvantage in the creature's attacks, just by looking at the person inside?

dnd 5e: Can a wizard cast Blink and then Polymorph on a TRex to become a blinking TRex?

Blinking is a spell of no concentration, so you can easily have both up. Does something stop you from using the blink, then Polymorph and continue flashing?

The flickering effect is not a class feature like anger, so it should not be canceled when you polymorph.

I don't see any problem to do it myself, since the configuration takes two turns.

dnd 5e: What happens to the target of a true "permanent" polymorph spell when your caster dies?

The description of the spell specifically says that after the caster has maintained his concentration for an hour, the spell can dissipate.

The transformation lasts for the duration, or until the target falls to 0 hit points or dies. If you focus on this spell all the time, the spell lasts until it dissipates.

Another question specified that spells that can be dispelled will last until their effect ends. While spells that require concentration, will end with death. However, it does not specify what happens with a spell that initially requires concentration.

If the caster dies after this duration, what happens to the target?

  • Does the objective retain its current form?
  • Does the objective return to the previous form?

pathfinder 1e – How do you determine & # 39; Intelligence equal or lower & # 39; for the Polymorph spell Any object?

In this spell, one of the factors that determines the final duration of the spell is "The subject is … Intelligence equal or less." What does that mean?

Obviously, if the spell turns the subject into an object, its intelligence will be less and this will apply. Similarly, an object turned into a creature would not apply.

The spell can also be used to replicate the effects of the perverse polymorph. Since that spell can alter the intelligence of the target, the intelligence of the target would increase or not and the duration would be affected or not, respectively.

However, when the spell is used as a major polymorph, the intelligence of the target does not change for any of the spells that the major polymorph can replicate. In those cases, does the final duration factor always receive the +2 increase?

If so, would the use of this spell to change one mammal for another would not always end with a permanent duration? (+5 of the same kingdom, +2 of the same class, +2 of the same class
intelligence = 9; permanent duration)

dnd 5e – What happens when you break an object made by True Polymorph?

Is there an official decision about what happens when an object made by True Polymorph is broken?


True Polymorph throws itself on a human, turning them into a twig.
An hour passes, making the effect permanent.
The twig is broken in half.

Does the Twig return to the Human it was before the spell?
Is damage needed due to overflow of objects?
Is it still a twig, just broken?
Does dissipating part of the broken twig dissipate all the true polymorph?

Are your decisions official about any of the above? If so, what are they?

dnd 5e – Polymorph question :: Excessive damage (and resistance)

Well, if you polymorph a Fire Giant in a Baby Chicken and let it fall in Lava, the Baby Chicken will take 10d10 or 18d10 if I submerge it.

When it reaches 0, it returns to its previous form and receives excess damage, but what if the creature were immune … like a fire giant? Do you assume you get all that damage because it was a Baby Chicken? Basically I am trying to turn a giant into a nugget.

dnd 5e: would the spell recognize Magic detect a creature or object affected by the true Polymorph spell?

True polymorph(PHB, 283) was altered and the spell text no longer calls it "permanent." Instead, the description of the spell now says (the emphasis is mine):

The transformation lasts for the duration, or until the target falls to 0 hit points or dies. If you focus on this spell for the entire duration, the transformation lasts until it dissipates.

Since the spell is currently active and dissipable, it is also active magic that can be detected by detect magic. Active magic is active magic, there are no degrees of it. There is magic there or there isn't. If there is, it is detectable. This is not an instant effect whose magic is over (and therefore not dissipable). It is a continuous effect, and the continuous effects are active magic.

magic: if you cast True Polymorph on matter made with the Creation spell, will the creature disappear once the Creation's duration ends?

Launch the creation to make vegetables that last one day, then launch a true polymorph to make a dwarf with the vegetables, does the Creature disappear after a day? It says that if you use the matter created by Creation as a component, the spell fails but True Polymorph does not use the target as a component.
