The caster could polymorph into the shape of any creature in size from a wren to a hippopotamus, while his or her mind would stay unchanged. He or she would gain any movement and respiration abilities of the new body, like flight in bird shape, or swimming and breathing water in the body of a fish, but not special abilities like a poisonous bite when transformed into a viper. For the duration of the spell, shape could be changed multiple times. If the caster changed back to his or her own body before the spell ended, some wounds would be healed in the transformation.
