Summary 0010026: Pieces from Xom's chessboard.
Description Adds an evocable item "piece from Xom's chessboard". Evoking it will either have Xom Rearrange the Pieces or end up with a bad Xom action (depending on evocations skill). Also has a small chance of disappearing (Xom wants it back).

Rearrange the Pieces didn't work well as a monster spell, but it makes for (in my opinion) a good purple evocation. There are situations where it will be Very Strong (e.g. a boss between you and a rune, swap places to get the ninja) even with the risk of a bad Xom action, and situations where using it will make everything worse.

The particular details of this incarnation might need work. It could be too easy to spam it for a mass-confusion like effect at high evo. This can be controlled by making it harder to use, increasing the disappearance chance, or both.

Xomites never get a bad action. ex-Xomites always do.
