Physical Mutation Drawback: Enlarged Appendage

Chris Van Deelen

Enlarged Appendage (drawback)

Type: Physical

Frequency: Common

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: +1

Damage: Three plus the power score modifier to any attack using the appendage.

Uses: Constant


The mutant’s appendages, most of the time the feet (or similar) are far larger than similar creatures. This makes it impossible for the mutant to wear most types of artifact armor, and any footwear costs an additional 4 times the usual cost.  The mutant likewise is easier to track, giving those attempting to track it a bonus. Mutants with enlarged appendages such as hands will suffer -5% plus -5% per power score modifier when attempting technology rolls. The only real advantage to this mutation is the mutants automatically do two plus the power score modifier bonus damage when using the appendage to attack.
