The Transmutations school of magic governs spells that alter the shape and nature of objects, including your own body. The main benefit of this school is access to a wide variety of alternate forms, each of which offers unique offensive and defensive perks (and occasionally vulnerabilities), but practitioners also gain a few utility and debilitative spells as well, particularly if they are also skilled in Earth Magic.
