        I agree with the material about Eiritha protecting the weak, but
not about saving 'mildly chaotic' babies. For a Praxian, any chaos is all
chaos. There's no way to quantify chaos to the Storm Bull chaos sense. A
baby with a malformed foot due to chaos is just as chaotic as any broo.

Allow it to live and it will insinuate chaos into society, and pretty soon
it will spread everywhere.
        I guess I think of chaos as a sort of radioactivity. Even in small
quantities is contaminates everything it comes across, and then those
things may spread the contagion further.
