Yeah, that's what really bothered me, that the System can simply take away what it gives so easily. I thought it would be impartial in its design (and that the trio would simply have to pay a fair price for Apricot to gain her ability to change size, something our MC would be strong enough to be able to set up for her permanently anyways in a dozen levels or so, he already has the spell.
Would Temmie also take away all the levels from a being who wants to take over the world and kill all sentient beings in it? Where is the line, what things will she interfere in, and where will she not. What about someone creating a magic bomb that can wipe out millions of people, or a plague that can spread far and wide? I think the big problem is that the System is not a guide (with skills) and a representation of your strength, but rather, it is all your strength. Without it, you are nothing, and that's a problem when it's not impartial.
