As we approach the coming new year, we think it’s only fair to consider the transformations that have happened to all of us this year. Whether these transformations take part through the impact that others have had on us (“I turn him into a rat”), or these changes happen through our own volition (e.g., Alter Self, Wild Shape), we’d like to celebrate–
Wait, what do you mean that’s not…
