Type: Physical

Frequency: Common

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


The mutant’s sweat glands are constantly active, even when at rest or in cool temperatures. This means the mutant always looks wet and the mutation has several different effects. First if the mutant is subjected to cold-based attacks, the mutant suffers a penalty to any saving throws equal to one plus the power score modifier. The mutant also suffers an additional one plus the power score modifier per dice damage from cold-based attacks. This is not all bad, as the mutant gains the same bonus to saving throws against any thermal-based and toxic contact-based attacks. The mutant has to consume three times as much water to survive however.
