Medal of Chaos ( ' )
Item Type Amulet
Artifact? Yes
Weight 300s
Danger Level N/A
Material Nonmetallic

The Medal of Chaos is one of the three artifacts of the Chaos Trinity. It is rewarded to the PC by Gaab'Baay, after the PC has completed all her quests. Acquiring the Medal of Chaos is necessary for all Ultra endings.

In its unidentified form, Medal of Chaos appears as obsidian amulet.


The Medal of Chaos is necessary for ultra endings, but it will be typically only used for safe passage through the Chaos Gate. The main cause for this is the sheer amount of negative features: the artifact curses and dooms the PC and gradually corrupts the PC if it is in his/her inventory (this effect is doubled if the amulet is equipped). Intrinsics granted by Medal of Chaos are rather insignificant and cannot possibly compensate even dooming alone. DV and PV are relatively good (especially among necklaces) but again nowhere near acceptable considering mentioned disadvantages. Finally, the Appearance bonus is practically useless; the only advantage of a large Appearance boost besides influencing shop prices for females is usually resistance to gaining corruptions, but as part of the Chaos Trinity, the Medal of Chaos gradually corrupts the PC too (the benefits of extra Appearance does not nearly negate the problem of constant corruption).

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Medal of Chaos is left by Gaab'Baay as soon as the PC completes her last quest and 'c'hats with her.
