Disable descriptions during polymorph

Post by Itikar » Tue Nov 24, 2020 3:01 pm

A current issue for characters who polymorph is that their description is kept when they turn into a rat/bear/parrot/elemental/<insert shape>.

Ironically while their description is kept the portrait at least is changed into the generic polymorph one (I think it is the shifter class portrait).

Anyway, in short I think that simply disabling the description during polymorph effects would be a good quality of life improvement.

Right now the only workaround is to use a disguise when polymorphing but it is not really always easy. And for characters that have multiple shapes it becomes a bit complicated.

As a corollary proposal it would be nice to be able to set a default description for polymorph effects, in a similar way that we do with cover.
