2 levels, 1 point per level
not available to metamorphosis forms
For characters able to transform (voluntarily or involuntarily) into other physical forms, this defect represents that the character is unable to transform back easily, not until certain preconditions are met. This might include a magical ritual, acquisition of a certain object of power, or even just the passing of several hours' time. If this defect applies to multiple forms, add 1 point to the total value for each one after the first one.
Level One: It takes several hours of work or special circumstances to enable the character to transform back to an earlier form.
Level Two: As above, but the process requires expensive (or hard to find) replacement components, ingredients, or other prerequisites.
