Let's you transform into a hellhound for up to 1 hour as per the polymorph spell.
This dark cloak is made of cured hell hound hide. As an action, you can command the cloak to transform you into a hellhound for up to 1 hour.
The transformation otherwise functions as a polymorph spell, but you can use a bonus action to revert to your normal form.
It is a magic item found in the Forgotten Realms setting and appears in Tales from the Yawning Portal.
This cloak is cursed with the essence of a hell hound, and becoming attuned to it extends the curse to you. Until the curse is broken with remove curse or similar magic, you are unwilling to part with the cloak, keeping it within reach at all times.
The sixth time you use the cloak, and each time thereafter, you must make a DC 15 Charisma saving throw. On a failed save, the transformation lasts until dispelled or until you drop to 0 hit points, and you cant willingly return to normal form.
If you ever remain in hell hound form for 6 hours, the transformation becomes permanent and you lose all your sense of self. All your statistics are then replaced by those of a hell hound. Thereafter, only remove curse or similar magic allows you to regain your identity and return to normal.
If you remain in this permanent form for 6 days, only a wish spell can reverse the transformation.
