You assume the form of another creature decided when you gain the power. You must have created a variant form for yourself using your normal points and limits. If you do not have such a creature description ready, you cannot use this power. This creature cannot have higher value in any particular skill than you do. You can add powers of the same form the creature has and keep schticks and powers you already have, but you cannot otherwise add powers or schticks. This power cannot be used to imitate a specific individual; you remain yourself in mannerisms and detail while changing race, species, and creature type.
You remain in this form for a scene or until you fall asleep or unconscious or will yourself back to your normal form (a Basic Action). You can learn this power several times to learn to transform into several different creatures.
You can only assume the form on an Aberration with this version of the power.
You change the target's size and the size of all their carried equipment. This can have a set duration of up to one day, or be a Curse. Sufficient changes will also change the Body score. You can change Body by as many points as your Mind, potentially reducing an ogre to the size of a small child and vice versa.
This can be used as a plot hook to place players in a miniature world - in such cases their attributes are usually not changed, instead the setting is altered to fit their new scale.
You can disappear, only to appear moments later in another location. You teleport to another location; roll for this as if it was a ranged attack against a Dodge of 5, with normal Range modifiers. Cover is very common when teleporting. When calculating Cover, teleportation treats anything infused with powers, living, ferrous, containing lead, or firmly anchored in the ground as hard cover - other obstructions are merely concealment.
On a failed roll, you either fail to teleport or suffer a Setback, as appropriate.
You can access a personal extra-dimensional space, useful for storage. It is a Basic Action to put something into or to take something out of this space. This is about as practical as a backpack; it can take time to find things in the holding space and it is possible for others to reach into this space to steal things just like they could from a pack. You must be capable of lifting the object to move it into or out of this space. Your lifting can be assisted, which usually increases the time required a lot. No creature can enter the space, only reach into it to access the things inside.
This stance can turn normal movement into teleportation. When you take a Basic Action, you can teleport some or all of the distance you'd normally move. Such movement is not an action; it is only the movement part of a normal Basic Action. You must have a clear line of sight to the target spot, but you can do several small teleports to move around corners or one long teleport to cover an obstacle such as a pit. As a Full Move, you can teleport a distance equal to your Maneuver in meters.
