Mental Mutation Drawback: Appendage Incapability

Chris Van Deelen

Appendage Incapability (drawback)

Type: Mental

Frequency: Common

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


The mutant has a great deal of difficulty using any sort of weapon – any sort of item for that matter. If the mutant ever attempts to a gadget or item with its appendages, it must make a Dexterity check (roll under his Dexterity on a D20) or automatically drop it. Also activating or otherwise using the item if it somehow managed to keep hold of it always requires 1d6 plus the power score modifier in rounds. Furthermore using any weapon likewise suffers the same penalty, however, the mutant will suffer a penalty of three plus the power score modifier on any to hit roll. Oddly enough, the mutant has no issues using natural weapons, so these penalties do not apply in this case.
