Shapeshifting | Becoming the Beast | Wandering DMs S03 E30
Polymorphing magic, druidic shapeshifting, and more — shapechanging is one of the trickiest things in D&D to get right. How has it changed over the years? Is it overpowered, underpowered, or just right? And what’s the best way to handle it in your games? Dan & Paul hash it out with help from our viewers.

Wandering DMs Paul Siegel and Dan “Delta” Collins host thoughtful discussions on D&D and other TTRPGs every week. Comparing the pros and cons of every edition from the 1974 Original D&D little brown books to cutting-edge releases for 5E D&D today, we broadcast live on YouTube and Twitch so we can take viewer questions and comments on the topic of the day. Live every Sunday at 1 PM Eastern time.
