Plant Mutation Drawback: Lead Roots

Chris Van Deelen

Lead Roots (drawback)

Type: Plant

Frequency: Common

Power Score: Yes

Range: Personal

Duration: Permanent

AI Recognition: None

Damage: None

Uses: Constant


The plants roots are lined with lead or another similar heavy metal, and thus the plant has great difficulty using these roots to move. Reduce movement by half for walking and swimming. Flight, if the plant has it, is unaffected, except it takes twice as long for the plant to lift off the ground.  If the plant uses its roots in combat, it gains additional damage equal to the power score modifier whenever it strikes with the roots.
