d100 Psychon Mutations



Mutagens on Psychon are based on nanobots that infest every living organism. Originally weapons that modified life for combat and post nuclear survival they also carried dna across species. Most adventurers have some basic mutations of at least skin colour. The gods decided long ago that to exterminate racism they made everyone skin colour unrelated to any natural colour and even some persons change colour or have patters like piebald or stripes or spots or chamo patterns. The minor cosmetic mutation table could replace the character mutation table and is possibly faster with results on a single table.

The major mutations are frequently freakish and often offensive. Possibly a bit more inspired by John Carter style "Planet Fiction"weird 70s anime and cartoons, masters of the universe and Jack Kirby Comics and heavy Metal magazine. Some new wave 60s and 70s sf like Moorcock, Aldiss, Sladek, Spinrad. 70s Fantasy genre films like lost worlds (At The Earths Core), steampunk () post apocalypse films like Zardoz. While the Xor tables are more biological and devolve people into shoggoths. Will do the cyber mutation table shortly too.

Apotheosis Mutations - too many mutations

Considering Martial arts table no 12 will be martial arts mutations...whaaaaat!


The mutant class coming soon too. Basicly a d8 hd with a minor and major mutation per level and can reroll any previous defective mutations if you want to take the risk. You can roll on any table you have a chance of being exposed to or justify or have more of what you already have. Mutagenic nanites can be stimulated by radiation, chemicals or near death experiences or exposure to other mutants.
