GMs hate me because of my sheer resourcefulness. This situation presented itself during a 3.0 game, and I'm wondering how it would play out in a 3.5 game. The party was attacked by an iron golem. I polymorphed my familiar into a rust monster and instructed it to use its rust touch attack on the iron golem. What would happen under the 3.5 rules? As I recall under 3.0, the rust attack was of the appropriate type to be transfered and available to the polymorphed creature. The rust attack in 3.0 would instantly destroy a cubic meter of ferrous metal per round, so the iron golem shouldn't last more than a round or two.
Someone please add "polymorph" as a tag to this post. I'm unable to create new tags at this point.
