If your mobs have special abilities/immunities that the player will
also inherit you need to be sure to check the balance of your game.
I used to play on a mud where you could poly into a wererat.  All
were creatures in the game were immune to non-magical weapons.  Since
the wererat was a relatively low level poly, people could just
walk down to Old Thalos and stand around collecting experience;
the lamias couldn't hit you!  Players would just set up a client
to send a <CR> every couple of minutes and then walk away for hours...

One cool aspect of poly was that you couldn't tell a poly'd player
from a mob in most cases.
