[RPG] Wild shape reversion to true form


As far as I understand a wild shaped druid can revert to its true form with using up a wild shape charge for the day (please correct if this is wrong already).

Does the druid also regain HP when undertaking this action?

The use of wild shape is used when you change into an animal (or plant, elemental, etc.). At this moment you will restore HP as if you slept a night, but no other effect from sleeping like restoring ability damage or regaining spells.

You turn back to your normal form after the maximum time, or if you choose to. You do not regain HP upon "leaving" wild shape.
