Certain types of environmental factors will cause the mutant pain and actual damage. When the mutant is subjected to the particular type of environment, the mutant will suffer 1d6 plus twice the power score modifier per hour of exposure. Also after 1 hour of exposure, the mutant will always be considered lightly injured due to the pain the environment causes it. This will stack with any actual injuries.
