The efreet can fulfill wishes. There is a limit to the power of the wish that can be fulfilled. Say it caps out at 1000gp, and a particular city has gotten a hold of a large number of efreet. Then, suddenly, everything in the city that costs less than 1000gp is free. Boom. Economy destroyed, and the new currency is based entirely off of things worth more than 1000gp (massive gems or magic items). This is more extreme, to be sure.Go to Comment

People could lose the ability to tell the difference between life and the simulated world, and thus begin to feel that they can be deleted / derezzed / scrapped like any of the bots they constantly interact with.Go to Comment
