I would say so. On a lesser success in the quest, the ogre meight stop
crawing human flesh (not be an ogre then actually), but have to resort
to chaos to survive anyway, like having to feed on badly mutated
animals or plants in the greater darkness...
So parhaps one could get a partial success. Instead of an ogre, the
quester would end up a slightly chaotic human, like the Telmori.
