Changing Forms

Some special abilities allow a creature to change its form or appearance. When a creature is using any ability described in this entry, a true seeing spell or ability reveals its natural form (the form it would always be in if it couldn’t change forms at all). A creature using one of these abilities reverts to its natural form when killed, but separated body parts retain their shape. A creature can’t use one of these abilities to take the form of a creature with a template.
