    The game's got a lot of intriguing points to it, but this is probably one of the bigger ones to grab my interest. Cow, Deer, Pig... Not the sorts of options one typically sees, so I've had some curiosity in exploring them. However, I found out today for the first time that there's also a Spider form. And I thought I remembered hearing something about a monstrous bee, too.

    So, I figured I'd make a standard inquiry: in total, what forms does the game have implemented? Planned? I know the Cow seems to have gotten more development than the others so far, give or take a Deer summon, but do any of the others have any additional content going for them (unique quests, capabilities, options, etc.)? Or anything planned/contemplated (I saw a note that all Pig abilities needed to be revisited)?

    Last, I get the impression the Bee form isn't implemented yet, but I know the Pig one comes through (for now) a potion like the Deer form. I have no idea where that is or how to get a hold of it (nor its cure). I saw on the Wiki that it's a rare drop from pigs, but given how many slaughterhouses' worth of them I've brought down, I'm a little dubious. Or at least suspect the drop rate is maybe a bit low for the sake of alpha testing. Would someone please shed some light on how one gets it?

    Thanks in advance!
