Mutant Character Class


Recent Ideas: Berserker mutations, clown mutations, clockwork mutations?

Another dozen sets of these a revision (some subtables d10 all inconsistent and older ones i didn't put concrete mods or effects so much so will revise). Mutant class seems to work well so far and class able to reroll old mutations has been good too.

Whaaat is this.

Many mutants gain powers through being possessed and tainted by other worldly beings. These spirits change people physically and mentally. Some of these beings should not be in our world and they can ruin or even destroy a body. Some take over devouring the soul of their host. Not all are evil but they may be alien or curious and not realize thy are killing victims or changing them. The entities need not remain but the hosts are changed. Their descendants might be receptive to future contact. It has things in common with the bio mutations, chaos and mental mutations. traveling through time or damaged gates or unshielded hyperdrives might attract such beings too. Some hosts embrace them hoping to become gods other struggle to remove the spirits if not the mutations. Most of the greater entities require more resilient bodies and normal ones just explode if occupied. Even a minor possession might cause blood noses, headaches, sinus pain, ear aches or other pressure related symptoms. Beings from overspace have at times been more common and at times directed evil civilizations to conquest.
