Plant Mutation: Alternate Water Feeding

Chris Van Deelen

Alternate Water Feeding

Type: Plant

Frequency: Very common

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


The plant has evolved in such a way that it is able to use both fresh and salt water to survive, and can extract water from almost any source - chemicals, gasoline, sewers, blood and so forth. The mutant plant is able to filter out clean water through the chemicals, and as such is immune to poisons from such sources, although it can still take damage from acid or similar toxins. So the plant could stick its roots, appendages and so forth into a chemical tainted cesspool and extract a number of gallons of potable water equal to half its power score. The process will take one round per gallon, and the plant can either store or use the water for itself, or it can 'pour' it into containers or the like to be used by others. Even though the mutant is immune to poisons from such sources, it is not immune to poison attacks or the like - only toxins and poisons found in the water it would extract.
