Furthermore, when a particular stat is at +5 or -5, it will only go up by +1 or -1, not +2 or -2.
So Inconsistent doesn't affect stats that are already minimised/maximised? If you have -6, is it impossible for that stat to be increased again?
Also, your wording on the last part is a bit ambiguous. Inconsistent raises a stat by 2 stages and lowers a stat by 1 stage; if a stat is at -5 and gets increased, would it go to -4 or -3?
