Roll twice on this table, ignoring this result.

 

The mutant plant can die of hunger, thirst or exposure – such as cold - (reduced to 0 hit points) and then later be revived, as long as the damage is healed, food introduced, watered, etc. This does not function if death is due to physical or mental damage and the mutant cannot revive if his body suffers significant damage while it is in this dormant state (it can sustain damage equal to its power score). Furthermore, the plant can return from the dead if it is killed by a specific type of damage. Roll on the chart to see what kind of damage it can return from.
