The mutant has an unconscious field that actually disrupts reality probability at a quantum level. This means that everyone around the mutant, including the mutant, is at the whim of fate from time to time. Every time the mutant is under stress (combat, injury, strong emotion, fear, etc.) all those around the mutant, including the mutant must save versus energy attacks. If the save fails, first check the above chart to see what effect takes place by rolling 1d10. This is done for each creature affected. This also includes any artificial creature, such as a robot or android. The strength of the effect is directly based upon the power score of the mutant. Consult the above chart for the power score and the results. The result is the negative or positive modifier that is applied to the appropriate result above.
