Plant Mutation Drawback: Iron Core

Chris Van Deelen

Iron Core (drawback)

Type: Plant

Frequency: Uncommon

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


The plant has a heavy iron center. This increases the weight of the plant by a factor of 5 plus the power score modifier, and reduces the plant's speed by 30' (10'). Any electrical attacks do an additional 50% plus the power score damage. Compasses point to it rather than magnetic north when they are within 10 feet. A positive side effect to this mutation is that the plant gains an AC bonus equal to that of the power score modifier.
