The subject assumes the form of a fast, agile creature.
The subject undergoes the following changes:
Its size changes to tiny.
Its base strength score changes to 2.
Its base dexterity score changes to 14.
Its land speed changes to 30’.
It gains no natural attacks.
The form is that of a quadruped, granting the subject a +4 bonus on ability checks made to resist being bull rushed or tripped when standing on the ground. The form has no hands, preventing the subject from using weapons and items requiring fine manipulation. It cannot provide somatic components. It may be able to use its mouth to hold items, within the limits of its new strength score.
As a tiny creature, the subject has a +8 size bonus on hide checks. It also gains a complimentary +8 racial bonus on move silently checks.
At the time of casting, you choose one enhanced mode of movement from the following list, which the subject gains:
A burrow speed of 20’.
A climb speed of 20’.
A swim speed of 20’.
An increase in base land speed, up to 50’.
Augment: You can Augment this spell in one or two of the following ways:
For every 2 additional spell points you spend, the burrow, climb, swim, or land speed increases by 10’. The mode of movement so augmented is the same as the one you chose to enhance at the time of casting.
If you spend 4 additional spell points, the subject’s size decreases to diminutive, its base strength score changes to 1, and its base dexterity score changes to 16. The racial bonus on move silently checks increases to +12, and as a diminutive creature, the subject has a +12 size bonus on hide checks.
If you spend 12 additional spell points, the subject’s size decreases to fine, its base strength score changes to 1, and its base dexterity score changes to 20. The racial bonus on move silently checks increases to +16, and as a fine creature, the subject has a +16 size bonus on hide checks.
