Lurtor thought, well dam, it turns out it was number 2.
Lurtor stood there looking over his body, using his Shapeshifting leyas to get a sense of his body. Lurtor said to Eli "Well, that might have been option 2. I am still me, though this body now is changed. I’m not sure what all of it means though. I’m going to try a few things, nothing that exciting hopefully. You may see shifts in my form, arms, wings, ect. Normal stuff… At least neither of use is gone dead. "
Lurtor concentrated on Gorguldol, seeing if it stayed this huge Rod, or if it would reshape to his desire. While having a large rod could be useful, it could get in the way too. Lurtor tried to imaging it shirking down to where it would look like a claw on his hand. Can he spin the rod or move his hand location on it while still maintaining contact. Did it respond to his thoughts?
At a notice of danger from disturbing the ring, Lurtor will stop or scale back his tests. He was trying to get used to the undead body and what it meant. Not cause himself more issues.
Then he would see if his Shapeshifting leyas would still work, making sure to leave his arm attached to the ring and rod mostly alone. He didn’t dare mess with the ring while under the effects of the rod. Seeing if his bone rings still worked. Lurtor was in his bigger form from the bone rings (aka armor and strength bonuses). He wanted to see if the ring grew and shank with his form. Applying the slightest size difference.
Then Mimic a form about the same size. He may not be able to use his other forms for a while. Can he make his form look less monstrous. Will he be able to use another form like Lurry still, or will Lurry be retired until he can fix this. No Doopleganger for the moment That might be a whole different issues.
Then Grow claws on his non rod hand. Grow wings, remove wings. Grow an extra arm, and reabsorb it.
With the Rod Claw, he’ll scratch the floor testing the sharpness of the claws.
Lastly, the fleshworm tenticles, could he make them going completely into the shadows so they weren’t visible, and how far did they reach out when he willed it. And how many were there.
Lurtor then realized he was grateful that he didn’t wear any healing or light artifacts though he owned some.
Lastly, did he notice a bond to the arena or anything else near by. More of a sense of the shadow leyas?
(OOC Lurtor is also trying to figure out the properties if any to the rod beyond the change in him.)
