Dopplegangers are so much fun. I was running a DnD game tonight that involved a Greater Doppleganger (so far this has basically just a regular doppleganger in 5e that can use illusion magic to mimic the look of equipment).
I've got the whole party doubting who is a doppleganger and who is real (especially after it tried to mimic a party member, mimicked a frightened little girl, and may/may not have been mimicking other characters). Its great.
Any of the forum staff could be a doppleganger as we speak. Particularly a certain person who conveniently decided to draw attention to elminster's profile, as if deflecting possible future suspicion...
Just as a note I would like to remind evryone that Martians are natural shapeshifters... so to be clear I'm not a doppleganger and anyone who suggests otherwise will have a close encounter with one of my orbital cannons...
True. On a serious note, shapeshifting and doppelganging are totally different things. The former just imitates some creature's approximate form, the latter, however, steals an individual's identity, personality and even their memories. Shapeshifting is thus acceptable, but doppelganging is unethical and condemnable.
On a less serious note, I wonder how the genetic constitution of doppelgangers is?
Tresset, beware of scams! You have no evidence this person is trustworthy while I am respectable Nigerian citizen (NOT ROYALTY!!!)
