    (but seriously ... is it timing out or are you just seeing the normal "spell effects expire on logout")

    I'm going to ask you a very stupid question, and you are going to forgive me, and answer it anyway.

    Have you restarted the client? Have you restarted the computer?

    Why would these work or be relevant at all? The same reason sometimes items vanish for no reason, only to reappear. And the same reason that sometimes people's profiles vanish. Or their desktop icons disappear.

    Kind of agreed.
    Primarily, the timer on polymorph should be removed again.
    In addition, polymorph needs more forms.

    Polymorph does need more forms, but why was the timer reinstated or is it a glitch in the code?

    Anyone remember the old days when the polymorph spell had a menu and the human female was listed under monsters? Hehe

    I think you all should remember that the coding in UO is like a big Jenga stack.

    Are you casting from a scroll? What is your magery level?

    Remember that forms etc can not be maintained if you do not have the skill level for real? Casting an animal form while 'jewelled up' and then taking the jewels off will have that effect now.

    Can anyone reproduce this? I see no timer and don't seem to ever revert until logout.

    I've said since the intro to Samurai Empire that the mage should get certain benefits from the creatures they polymorph into, ala ninja dog form for hit point regen... or if you poly into a demon you get additional spell damage increase bonus, or something like that.....etc, with the rest of the poly spells.

    Roleplaying requires skillz. You don't have them, you roleplay the weak.

    You have no idea how I have missed this sort of thing. For an entire year I have been following and playing a game that shall remain nameless where all anyone ever cared about was being 733t and pwnz0ring n00bs. Pray indulge me while I baptize myself in your fountain of laughter and imagination.

    Yes, I do think I will spend some quality time role playing poultry, as soon as humanly, or avianly, possible...
