Transmutation Is Weird #1
Polymorph any object can turn an object or creature into another creature or object, for a duration from 20 minutes to Permanent. The FAQ recommends that Polymorph and such not copy advanced forms of creatures, because (paraphrased) 'it'd be a headache.'
I'm dissatisfied with the FAQ's suggestion that polymorph shouldn't be allowed to produce Advanced versions of creatures, and that any humanoids formed from objects should be 1HD commoners.
Can polymorph, polymorph any object, or shapechange actually copy advanced forms of creatures, including humanoids?
If yes regarding objects becoming advanced humanoids, how would you adjudicate that advancement?
