Poly morph self during wiz round as non antag

Postby Fhaxaris » Thu Aug 22, 2019 2:12 am #508998

During a wizard round, the wizard used the summon magic ritual and I was given a wand of polymorph. I was curious about what I would turn into if I shot myself with it, so I did just that. I got turned into a syndicate assault borg. Is using a wand of polymorph on yourself as a non-antag self-antagging?

it's not self-antagging because consensually polymorphed you isn't an antag in the first place

If you are voluntarily polymorphed you are not an antag. This is a dumb rule that needs to be reworked, I don't think involuntarily being polymorphed should make you an antag.

The existence of that rule is because polymorphed mobs (especially things such as syndiborgs) are at exceptionally high chance of getting valided by the crew and so it would be unfair to involuntarily polymorphed players to not let them defend themselves because they're not actually antags.

And secondarily the polymorph is meant to be chaotic so it's kinda just re-enforcing the gameplay aspect.

Better to focus your efforts on changing the actual polymorph availability/effect in code then trying to finetune the rules on something like this to be honest.

Using a wand of polymorph in yourself is not self antagging. However, keep on mind you do not become an antagonist if it was done willingly like in that case.
