1) What is the length of Absorb Essence? When does it resolve (first round of combat. Non hidden, had to lure the monster away with someone else).

2) If I absorb a monster, I get the new monster's values (4.6.9d). I assume that includes Vulnerability? So if I absorb the Tremendous Octopus, I can then deal with the 12 goblins relatively easily (except that I cannot fatigue to continue combat, but I can lure them all, if I want, and let the other characters fatigue to extend it).

3) 4.6.9e says you can't be wounded when transmorphized, but I assume you can still be killed.

1) absorb essence is a permanent spell. if you mean length as in weapon length, spells dont hit like weapons (except attack spells). Spells come alive in the melee step, before attacks are resolved.

2) yes you get its vulnerability. The octopus can handle the 6 axe goblins, but the spear goblins (H+ attack) will kill it. Great sword goblins would kill it on either side.

3) yes, you can be killed. but your chits are out of play while you are transmorphized. so they cannot fatigue or wound. you behave just like a monster, no effect until you get hit with your vulnerability or higher damage





try absorbing the T Flying Dragon (tremendous, plus armor that the octopus lacks) with his T3 head, you can kill lots of things without risk.

Ah, missed that.

I cheated then, as I forgot the spear goblin's sharpness. But I ate it before I could high tail out of dodge next turn as two tremendous trolls got me.

Which brings to mind a very fun session report (spoilers, if you are trying to figure out possible interesting combos for yourself):

Yeah, I read that report or another similar one. I kept that in mind at last Orcon with the MR game played there. I was the Witch and (sadly) only managed to snag the Large dragon. Everyone thought I was insane wandering off on my own in the caves...until I sprung my spell on it. devil I then romped around trying to pick fights with anything I could get my claws on.

I believe Remedy and Exorcise can break permanent spells too. Is there other ways?
