How does unconscious/death even work with this spell. I just assumed you would keep your own rating, but that would mean the mother of all mosquitos.

If you get the creatures ratings instead though, what happens when it/you dies?
I would personally interpret it as the damage always applying to your main health-pool, and your cloak would disappear if you exceed the health of the animal of which you've taken the appearance from. I would probably let the person be disoriented an maybe harried for a little while after dropping out of the cloak from "death" too...

But then I have a hard time following all of the ED rules because to me they are in the way of great roleplay. I try to be consistent with my exceptions, but the rules do not allow for sufficient flexibility for my taste. Also, they are at time overly complicated.

Who cares if you have the difference between the animals life and your own left after losing your flying form?
You drop from whatever height to the ground and as we all know: falling damage is the most critical damage in each roleplaying game -> death :evil:

Not every roleplaying game. When a Garou jumps out of an airplane without a parachute, they shout "Gaia's Non-Aaaaaaaaaaagg!"
