The Tyranny of Dragons
- Items equipped to the character will need to have a mark ‘wearable or drop’. Default is meld.
- Default forms learned should be based on the Beast Shape Tables below.
To acquire additional shapes you must observe or interact with the beast.
You learn the beast’s shape after observing its behavior for at least 1 hour and succeeding on an Intelligence (Nature) check with a DC equal to 10 + the beast’s challenge rating. For this observation period, your vantage point—whether physical or magical— must be within 150 feet of the beast. If you previously spent at least 1 hour reading a scholarly work about the creature, you have advantage on the check.
You learn the beast’s shape after interacting with it peacefully for 10 minutes and succeeding on a Wisdom (Animal Handling) check with a DC equal to 10 + the beast’s challenge rating. For this interaction period, you must be within 15 feet of the beast, and if you spend at least a minute petting it, you have advantage on the check. Either of these options can be assisted by magic.
