Then you make the power cost as much as the most expensive form they could ever take...

So if you make it say Small Animal Form 50 points (+14 per extra form) then their most potent form has to be 50 points or less.

If there's no way to do it the way I'm thinking, that's fine. It will just be energy-expensive for my druids to turn into bears or big cats.
You can always "do it" the way you're thinking. You're the GM... just do it.

Will it be 'balanced'? Eh.... there's the rub.
Feel free to steal, borrow, fold, spindle, mutilate any rule, advantage, etc I come up with it.
