Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara

Spell References – Transmutation Spells

Transmutation spells change the properties of a creature, object, or environment. They might turn an enemy into a harmless creature, bolster the strength of an ally, make an object move at the caster’s command, or enhance a creature’s innate healing abilities to rapidly recover from injury.

A list of all the available transmutation spells in my game and where to find them for easy reference.

Transmutation spells have a base colour of brown and belong to the Sphere of Time.
