Wishes You Don't Want Granted: Shapeshifting
You learn from birth to death how to navigate this ship through the waters of existence. Your onboard crew, working together like experienced sailors, know only this hull and this delicate rigging. Foreign vessels, however sturdy, are unwieldy attempts to disrupt what you know. Disaster awaits you if you board that odd deck and attempt to tack around those rocks waiting with no lighthouse you can possibly recognize. And don’t talk to us about retraining or reprogramming. If you tried it on the fly you would be done for. We don’t regret this. We accept it with thanks. Even gratitude.
