Amulet of chaos ( ' )
Item Type Amulet
Artifact? No
Weight 3s
Danger Level 13
Material Adamantium

Amulets of chaos draw the PC's alignment toward chaotic, and damage any lawful PCs who attempt to wear them (much the same way as an amulet of order damages chaotics).

It is presumed that the amulet of chaos adjusts alignment similarly to the amulet of order, however tests have not been done on this. See this page for information on how the amulet of order works (all credits to the ADOM Guidebook for it).

Amulets of chaos always appear as obsidian amulets when unidentified. In 1.1.1, amulets of chaos could also appear as marble amulets.


Almost useless. The only considerable use for it is for a PC who relies on companions but prefers to stay chaotic or neutral. Since healing a companion is a considerably lawful act this amulet might help quickly go back to initial alignment.
