Anyone else a frog!
Opened a chest in the sewers and fell victim to a polymorph trap (got turned to frog). At first this seemed OK as I could run around really fast and the lizards ignored me but I expected it to wear off but it never seemed to. Luckily I had a save 5 mins previous but is there a way to turn back? I couldn't use spells, attack, pick up objects or even leave the area and there didn,t seem to be any princess's around to give me a kiss!!. Would like to know incase it happens again when I,ve been lazy with the saving.

Unfortunately, there is no way to undo this effect, though it can be prevented with a Spiritual Resistance of about 12 or 15.

During development, Polymorph started off as a temporary effect (frog or rabbit). When that was changed to permanent, all of the traps should have been removed from the game, but 2 were missed, in the Verdistis sewers (map[www.xanlosch.de]); one of the traps is in a sealed room you need to toss a teleporter stone through a grate in order to get into.

OK so avoid the one chest I already found and quick save before I open any others down there. Thanks for the info, glad I don't have to be too paranoid to open any chests elsewhere.

I would love to end my life polymorphed as a frog. Oh how I love old school PRG's. None of that "soft" RPG we are getting to day. Its real Hardcore, I love it.

If there is a window or gate, etc, you may be able to get a teleporter stone through (like in Dr Elrath's house: screenshot[members.shaw.ca], 345KB). There can also sometimes be a slight gap in the north west corner where two walls meet, which might allow you to get a teleporter stone through (if you stand at just the right spot west of Kistandalius' shop in Ars Magicana, you can see inside the shop and talk to him).

You can toss a teleporter stone into or onto places your character can not normally reach, like some of the raised sections and most of the mountains in the Dark Forest, or down in the sewer itself rather than the walkways in the sewer system (there is a skill book in one of the sewers that you need a teleporter stone or Telekinesis to reach). If that area is outside the normal play area your character may not be able to walk, but can repeatedly toss a teleporter stone and teleport to it. That is required to move across the river in the south east corner of the Dark Forest, but you can toss a teleporter stone out the Verdistis front gate at an angle, teleport outside the city walls and walk/run around freely.
