Summary 0008392: Being unwillingly polymorphed into a bat as a vampire while full gets you permanently stuck in bat form
Description I was playing a Vp and had just acquired the ability to turn into a bat, but upon noticing I wasn't too keen on flying around the dungeon without my opposing thumbs, some random goblin with a wand of polymorph went ahead and zapped me with it, turning me into, of all things, yes, a bat.

I contemplated the irony of the situation for a moment before flying away at bat-speed to wait out the bat-transformation, but after tapping the '5' key a few times, I was certainly not done waiting, despite the game's insistence on telling me so. Unfluttered by this unexpected inconvenience, I thought it could be just a matter of cancelling the transformation myself; being a bat is, after all, part of a vampire's nature, and as such, so is being a not-bat when currently one and not wanting to anymore.

Alas, having recently feasted on the blood of my fallen enemies, apparently I was in no condition to control my bat-whims, or in this case, my not-bat-whims. "No problem", I thought; "I'll just '5' until I'm a bit more dead". While the game misinterpreted that, and started tried to shove me downwards by spawning progressively nastier critters, I did manage to reduce my satiation to a bat-appropriate level without much trouble.

To my horror, however, quoth the raven, "Sorry, you're too full to transform right now". Well, I guess it wasn't really a raven, unless one of the developers happens to be one, something I really doubt; ravens are smart birds but I think most programming courses in civilized countries do not accept birds as students (I'd rather not consider the thought of a self-taught programmer raven). But whomever it was, the same message greeted me ever and ever again, until, disgusted by the ordeal, I left the dungeon, trapped in batdom until the Apocalypse arrives.

I used polymorph on myself in Wizmode as a Vampire until I turned into a bat, I could not reproduce this issue.
