"Chaos (or Chaotic) is the opposite of Law. It is the belief that life is random, and that chance and luck rule the world. Everything happens by accident, and nothing can be predicted. Laws are made to be broken, as long as a person can get away with it. It is not important to keep promises, and lying and telling the truth are both useful."
"To a Chaotic creature, the individual is the most important of all things. Selfishness is the normal way of life, and the group is not important. Chaotics often act on sudden desires and whims. They cannot be trusted, and their behavior is hard to predict. They have a strong belief in the power of luck. Chaotic behavior is usually the same as behavior that could be called 'evil'." -2nd edition [1]

Below is a detailed guide of what The Nameless One can say and do in order to become Chaotic.

General GuidelinesEdit

In order to become Chaotic, The Nameless One should:

  • Lie and bluff
  • Break vows
  • Join the Anarchists or the Xaositects
  • Be impulsive: taunt Morte, have conversations with skeletons, zombies or bark at madmen

Note: The values for alignment are hidden in Planescape: Torment. Qwinn's Tweak Pack has a component called the Scale of Souls, which, if installed, allows the player to view alignment values. The Nameless One starts the game with a "Good" and "Law" rating of 0, signifying neutrality. Chaotic acts subtract from the "Law" value, and when the rating reaches -21, the alignment changes to Chaotic; when it reaches 15, the alignment switches to Lawful.[2]
