Chaos Patrons (Spoiler)

=== Chaos Patrons (spoiler) ===

Chaos Warriors have a chaos patron,  who will give them a present,
or  do something nasty to them each time they advance their level.
Note that if you gain multiple levels at the same time, you will
only get a reward for the first one. There are 36 different things
they can do, and 16 Chaos Patrons. Each Patron can give only some
of those rewards. The procedure of selecting a reward is in the
section 'What can they do?'.

The rewards get short names. With the Patrons are listed the powers
that they have. Then look them up in the 'What can they do?' list.
Each Patron (except Balo) also has a 'favourite stat', which is
also listed below.

=== What can they do? ===

There is a 1 in 6 chance that you will get a random mutation. If
you don't, you get one of the reward types. Each patron can give 20
rewards - not all of them different, if a reward is in his list
multiple times, that just increases the chance of getting it. The
first five in the list are considered 'nasty', the rest aren't.
Usually, a random reward is chosen from the 'nice' 15. But you may
be unlucky.

Usually, you have a 1 in 6 chance of being unlucky. If you become
level 13, however, the chance is 1 in 2. If your level is merely a
multiple of 13, it is 1 in 3. If, on the other hand, your level is
14 or a multiple of 14, the chance is only 1 in 12. If you're
unlucky, a reward is chosen randomly from the full list.

Listed with the 'short name', the powers are:
