Porkalator is a monster-only spell. If it beats a willpower check, it turns the target into a pig. For players, you are temporarily forced into Pig Form. This melds all equipment except amulet, prevents spellcasting, and greatly weakens your Unarmed Combat. Monsters are turned into a hog, hell hog, or holy swine, for natural, demonic, and holy monsters respectively. Players do not get these alternate forms.
