Physical Mutation Drawback: Impaired Regeneration Capability

Chris Van Deelen

Impaired Regeneration Capability (drawback)

Type: Physical

Frequency: Uncommon

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


First, mutants who possess the regenerative capability cannot have this mutation. Reroll or the mutation is dormant. The mutant heals from wounds far slower than other creatures, even if the mutant possesses a high Constitution score. The healing rate as well as the regeneration mutation is reduced by one plus the power score modifier (but never less than 1 hit point per day of rest). To hamper healing further, the mutant suffers the power score modifier as a negative to any healing drug or mutation it possesses! This can never drop below one point per dice, however. Vampiric field works normally for this mutant, and does not suffer from a reduction in the amount of hit points it will gain.
