You mean transformation like Sartar did, or like Heort did, or like the Larnstings do, or even like Murharzarm did in transforming society? Do you mean Trickery like thieves do, or like clever men do, or making camouflage, or sleeping to avoid death, or... &tc.

The power of change/transformation is not ultimately in the hands of Trickster. He is Disorder. Change/Transformation is in the hands of Orlanth, or Larnste, if you prefer.
