A little while back, I was running an encounter in my Pathfinder 1e campaign where an aboleth had magically disguised a hydra as itself and I was wondering, in a situation like this, when would saves to disbelieve be made, and how often could those saves be made?
The first part isn't that difficult, as I figured whenever a player would directly interact with the glamered creature, that they could make a save. The problem is that, especially in the case of a hydra that gets so many attacks, would the players being attacked get a save each time they're hit? Or should they only get 1 save each round or turn, or something to that effect? Even for characters with poor will saves, if they're making nearly 10 saves in a turn (since this was a 10-headed hydra), there's a pretty good chance they'd make a save to disbelieve, which seems to kind of make the illusion useless.
Specifically, it was using its Veil spell-like ability to disguise the hydra.
