This article is about the school of magic. For the Nethysian holiday, see Transmutatum.

Transmutation, sometimes called transfiguration,[1] or transformation,[2] is one of the eight schools of magic recognized on Golarion. As its name suggests, it deals with the transmutation or transformation of objects and people, or the changing of one of their attributes.[3] Wizards who specialize in this school of magic are known as transmuters.[4]

On Golarion

Among the Varisian people, this type of magic is known as "avaria".[5]

Notable transmuters

Sin magic

During the reign of the runelords of ancient Thassilon, transmutation was associated with the sin of greed, and was therefore the specialty of Karzoug, ruler of Shalast.[11]
