Physical Mutation Drawback: Hypersomnia

Chris Van Deelen

Hypersomnia (drawback)

Type: Physical

Frequency: Uncommon

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


Most beings require at least eight hours of sleep per day to feel rested. Mutants with this drawback need more in order to gain any benefits from natural healing or to remove the effects of fatigue. The mutant needs eight plus half the power score in hours of sleep in order to gain any benefits from healing and other such factors. For example, a mutant with a power score of 12 will require 14 hours sleep per day. If the mutant does not get the required sleep, they are considered moderately fatigued and do not gain the benefit of natural healing. The mutant could very well pass out from the fatigue it feels!
