Iron Cages of Lust question


Rise of the Runelords

Shadow Lodge

we had a very odd set of ciurcumstances tonight in the Iron cages

PC Casts Baleful polymorph on creature.... 2 fails on Saves now Creature thinks its a toad

then PC's proceed to take their newfound Toad out of the cages

what happens to the gear on said creature after it dusts (gear is merged into the body)


When a creature dies, all spells that can only affect living creatures (like Baleful Polymorph) stop working on it, in this case it will revert to its original form (but still dusted). When the polymotph ends, the gear will appear again.


....I am suddenly very, very interested in this adventure path.

The dissection lab in the Vaults of Greed directly contradicts this idea.

That is either because what the Transmuter is doing in those labs isn't technically a Baleful Polymorph... or those creatures are not dead.


It is stated as baleful polymorph, and some are dead.

Ah. Once again my knowledge of previous editions bites me in the bottom.

That said, all they need do is cast Dispel Magic and the dust turns into equipment. Baleful Polymorph is a Permanent spell, not an Instantaneous spell, and thus can be affected by Dispel Magic.


Indeed-a-roonie.
