I am always looking for new ways to introduce the odd, bizarre and weird to Gamma World and Mutant Future. One simple method involves The Metamorphica, a free pdf and inexpensive print on demand book that is filled with gobs of mutations and many useful charts.

I have seen a few different supplements that combine spells in various ways, but I have never seen the idea of a sequence of effects where one ends and the next takes over. Here are a few examples using AD&D spells:

They really missed the boat with epic spells. They should not be extensions of lesser magics, doing more damage or affecting larger areas. No, they should change the rules. Here are a few examples that are written generically so you can easily adapt them to your ruleset of choice:
Lungs Seek Relief alters how breathing works and all those within its area of effect must save or suffocate every round.
