I may turn him into a lion for that. Otherwise, I might have characters crack jokes about how they both get turned into bears, rather than wolves or lions or deer or -- and one character's not going to find it funny after the real threat she faced, of being turned into an animal.
And I know the low point is going to involve a king throwing three characters in prison, so I have to sort out the events before and after that.
And a character is being colorless. He needs his own heroic action. I think it may mean splitting up the party. Not quite the horror that that is in RPG, but it does mean POV issues.
