A Thousand Faces

Home Page / House Rules / Druid / A Thousand Faces

When a Druid uses A Thousand Faces, their tactile (and probably sound) properties do change appropriately, despite the Disguise Self spell it is based on saying they do not. This is because A Thousand Faces is a real physical change, but Disguise Self is actually an illusion.

This is mostly to prevent the following two cases:
  1. A druid makes herself a foot shorter. She actually physically shrinks by a foot. Someone tries to pass their hand over her head, but cannot because it still feels like her head is where it was before she shrank, even though it absolutely is not.
  2. A druid makes her self a foot taller. She actually physically grows by a foot. Someone tries to slap her, and their hand passes right through her real physical head, simply because it still feels like her head is where it was before (so somewhere in her chest now).

By actually “updating” tactile qualities, these both work as expected (there is no “ghost” of the original form left behind)
