Mutations play a very important part in GAMMA WORLD. Without them, there would
be no game (duh).
The Mutation descriptions below are not all-inclusive. There may be things
about them that can only be discovered through play. If you have any ideas or
questions that are not covered, your GM will have to make a ruling.
Whenever you see "concentration", take that to mean that nothing strenuous can
be undertaken, nor can damage be suffered. These will break the concentration.
Wherever you see "at all times", it means whenever the Character is awake or
Some Mutations will have frequency, duration, or range limitations. These will
be noted. If not noted, the limit does not exist (unless your GM rules
Some Mutations can be chosen multiple times, at the GM's discretion.
If your Character's race already has something that is available as a Mutation,
you can purchase that Mutation and have two of them, or twice the effect.
All Characters with Mutations will have a Mutational "twitch". The GM can
randomly decide that a Character's Mutation has uncontrollably "flexed" and
been used. The results, while unpredictable, can liven up the game.
If a Mutation lists additions or subtractions to Stats, those count toward the 65
points which new Characters begin with.
Mutations are listed by category:
1 Point Mutations
2 Point Mutations
3 Point Mutations
1 POINT MUTATIONS
2 POINT MUTATIONS
INCREASED BALANCE: Character takes 2 off of each DEX roll (not counting attack
HEAT GENERATION: Character can cause his hands to heat up to the point of
igniting flammable material or cause 10 pts. damage. This can be done once
every 30 seconds.
WINGS: Character has wings. If he weighs more than 160 pounds, only large
avian wings will allow flight. Otherwise, only wing-assisted jumps or glides
can be performed. Referee's discretion on distance and/or height. Character
can carry 2xSTR. For type, roll d6 on chart below;
Soft Wing: Roll again: 1-3) Butterfly, 4-6) Moth
Membranous: Roll again: 1-2) Fly, 3-4) Bee, 5-6) Wasp
Concealed Membranous: As 2, but with Partial Carapace covering wings
Mammalian: Roll again: 1-3) Bat, 4-6) Gliding
Avian: Type is Referee's Choice
Choose Your Own.
: Character can generate a globe of light anywhere within 15 yards. This can
be maintained at all times, even during combat. A flash can be generated,
blinding all facing it (friend or foe) for 5 rounds. This can be done once
every 20 rounds. If character also has
, a 10 pt. laser can be generated once every 5 rounds. Character cannot have
Mutation. Character has a fear of being in the dark for more than 10 minutes,
and will generate light to go to sleep. The light will extinguish 15 minutes
after the Character goes to sleep.
MODIFIED BODY PARTS
: Roll d6 on chart below to determine which parts are modified;
MULTIPLE BODY PARTS: Character has more of a body part than others of his
species. Roll on chart for MODIFIED BODY PARTS to determine which.
NEW BODY PARTS: Character has a body part that is new to his species. It does
not have to be found in another species, it can be something completely new to
nature (organic laser, magnetic skin, etc.).
WALL CLIMBING: Character has hundreds of tiny barbs on the palms and soles. He
can climb on any surface that has texture. He cannot climb or hang upside down
and must use both hands and both feet (bare) to climb. He can carry a burden
equal to 1.5 his STR in pounds when climbing. These barbs are useless for
PARTIAL CARAPACE: Character's skin covering his neck and back is hard (like
fingernails) and jointed. This has separate Hit Points equal to 1/4 his normal
HP. It regenerates at 4 points per day regardless of activity.
INCREASED SPEED: Character has the ability to move at 2-4 times the normal
rate for his species (roll d4, reroll 1's, and multiply his
by the die roll). This is due to his metabolism being 99% efficient. The
character gives off almost no waste. Anything that is not poisonous can
provide nutrition (dirt, leaves, etc.). The die roll is also the number of
attacks per round he gets, regardless of his DEX score. The ability to move
fast does have a drawback: Any time the Character
, he must make a successful DEX roll or have a mishap. He may trip, or run
into something (overshooting his stopping point), or some such happening.
Character does not sweat, so overheating is a danger if the Character exherts
himself for very long.
POISON GLANDS: Character has poison glands in his jaw. The poison is
transmitted through enlarged, hollow incisors. The Poison will paralyze his
victim autonomic system for 1d4hours. Good for one bite, the poison
regenerates in 6 hours. The bite does +5 points.

DWARFISM: Character is 50% shorter than others of his species. Add 2 to DEX.
SOUND IMITATION: Character can imitate perfectly any sound or voice that he has
heard in the past 24 hours.
ULTRA-VISION: Character has the ability to see in the ultra-violet range.
There is no penalty for darkness. Intense sunlight causes 10 pts. damage per
hour of exposure because this character is an albino. If Character is fully
clothed and head is covered, there will be no damage.
INFRA-VISION: Character has the ability to see any heat-producing source. Fog,
mist and the like will affect him like it would anyone. Intense blasts of heat
at close range (lasers, explosions, fires, etc.) require the character to make
a DEX save (to close his eyes) or be blinded for 1d10 minutes.
SPINES: Character has 2d10 spines growing from spinal column and one from each
elbow. They each do 7 pts. damage in combat. The spines have 20 separate HP
each. Broken spines regrow in two weeks.
INCREASED SIGHT: Character has enlarged eyes that let him see clearly up to 1.5
miles (distinguishing individuals at that range).
INCREASED HEARING: Character can detect and identify all sounds within 60 yards
if he is facing within 45 degrees of the sound. He can't be surprised while
awake unless a sound dampening factor (brick wall, etc.) muffles the sound.
His ears will be larger than normal for his species, and canted forward a
little. He suffers double damage from Sonic Blast. Three consecutive Sonic
Blasts (within a three round period) will deafen the Character permanently.
Nearby explosions will do 1d10 damage (whether or not the blast hurt the
INCREASED TOUCH: Sensitive finger nerves let character feel the structure of
objects or people. He gets a benefit of 2 to his die roll when figuring out an
artifact. Character cannot have any other hand modifying Mutation.
INCREASED SMELL: Character can identify odors up to 60 yards away on calm days.
On windy days, it is 30 yards upwind and 90 yards downwind. He can follow a
trail less than a week old over non-watery surfaces. After "studying" someone
or something for an hour, he can tell where they or it have been in the last
week. Stong, pungent odors cause the Character to vomit for 1d4 minutes or
until the odor is no longer present.
RADIATED EYES: Character's eyes can emit, once every 15 rounds, Int. 1d10
radiation up to 10 yards.
FUR: Character's body is covered with very thick fur, providing waterproofing,
2 points of armor, and 5 points of protection from cold based attacks.
Coverage is all-inclusive except for the face, palms, and soles of the feet.
ELASTICITY: Character's body is rubbery, and can stretch 5 times its original
Character cannot have any skeletal enhancing mutations
. STR is lowered by 3.
ENHANCED RESPIRATION: Character's respiratory system is twice as strong as
normal. He can engage in twice the activity for twice as long, however; gases
take effect twice as fast and have twice the effect.
QUILLS: Character's back is completely covered with long quills. The "coat"
gives 5 points of protection. They can be raised, doing 5 points damage each
on contact, coming off of the Character, and 2 points per round until removed,
as they work themselves into the victim. They are serrated and removing them
does another 5 points each. Spines regrow in 1 week.
MENTAL SHIELD: Character's WILL is increased by 4 whenever defending. He
automatically senses any active Mental-based Mutation within 30 yards.
PRECOGNITION: Character can sense impending danger. By concentrating, he can
see 1/2d10 minutes into the future, but the exact meaning may be unclear.
BEGUILING: This makes all opponents within 15 yards use their least powerful
weapons or powers when attacking the Character. The mutation last 5 rounds,
and the "hit" creatures cannot be affected again for 24 hours.
LOW NEURAL RESISTANCE: Character's neural impulses are faster, giving him
heightened learning capabilities (
are learned in 1/2 the required time, as is Familiarity) and perfect recall.
He gets a benefit of 2 to artifact rolls, and -1 to defense rolls.
: Character can project illusions having any olfactory, visual, and auditory
characteristics he wants to any spot he can see. All others seeing the
illusion undergo a Mental Attack. Those "hit" believe the illusion is real
until it dissipates (5 minutes after being created), or until they physically
come into contact with it. This can be used once per day.
MECHANICAL GENIUS: Character gets a benefit of 2 to his die roll when figuring
out artifacts. Any weapon he fashions does an extra die damage, but takes 3
times as long to make.
CONTROL MAMMAL: Character can control the actions of one type of mammal,
referee's choice. He can control a number equal to half his WILL score. This
requires a Mental Attack, but if it fails, the animal(s) have a 50% chance of
being attracted to the Character.

animals, whether intelligent or not. He can gather information, chat, ask
EMPATHY: Character senses all intelligences within 100 yards and their
emotional state (if any).

mind and the mind of one other. The link is not hampered by distance, and
lasts for life. If one dies, the other suffers damage equal to all but 1 HP,
falling unconscious for 1/2d10 days. If the link is severed, it can be
established with another.
CLAIRVOYANCE: Character can see events taking place in another location up to a
mile away by tapping into a mind present at the location. This requires a
successful Mental Attack.
CLAIRAUDIENCE: Character can hear events taking place in another location up to
a mile away by tapping into a mind present at the location. This requires a
successful Mental Attack.
PERSUASION: Character can influence someone to do what he wants (within GM's
limits). Target suffers a +6 when defending against this attack.
: Character can manipulate light in many ways. He can bend the light and make
himself, or anything within 10 yards, invisible. He can "catch" light-based
attacks and send them to another target. If he also has
, he can generate a 10 pt. laser.
MENTAL BLAST: Twice a day, the character can direct a blast of mental energy at
a target within 15 yards, causing 15 pt. damage. Hit is automatic.
MENTAL CONTROL OF BODY: Character can override physical pain and internally
halt blood loss. He immediately recovers 2d10 HP. He falls unconscious after
the 20 round time limit expires, and must be tended to, as he will again start
bleeding. This can be done once per day.
CONTROL INSECTS: Character can control a swarm of up to 1000 insects, making it
attack a target. This can be done once per day. This requires a successful
Mental Attack, and if it fails, the insects have a 50% chance of being
attracted to the Character instead.
DUALITY: Character is able to concentrate fully on two separate activities
simultaneously. He gets 2 attacks per round regardless of DEX score, and can
attack two separate opponents with two separate weapons.
MILITARY GENIUS: Character subtracts 2 from rolls when trying to hit an
opponent. Add 5 pts. to the damage he does.
CONTROL BIRDS: Character can control any one bird, making it do his bidding.
This can be done once per day for one hour. This takes a Mental Attack, and if
it fails, the bird may be attracted to the Character instead.

objects, or opponents. He does 5 pts. extra damage per attack.. His roll has
a benefit of 2 when figuring out Artifacts.
QUAKE GENERATION: Character can generate a linear earthquake along a line 3
yards wide and 30 yards long, extending out from him in any chosen direction.
All in the line must make a DEX check or fall down. This can be done twice per
day. It is not powerful enough to damage trees or buildings. Character will
have some sort of unnecessary motion he will perform to use the Mutation. The
movement is purely psychological, but the Character will be completely unable
to use this if he is unable to perform this movement.
PHYSICAL REFLECTION: Character's skin deflects even the most intense form of
any one type of energy above the environmental norm, thus making him immune
(with the noted exceptions) to that type of damage. Roll d4 below to determine
If the character has
, he cannot have choices 1 or 2.
Thermal (lasers do 1/2)
Electro-magnetic (lasers do 1/2)
Kinetic (penetrating/cutting attacks are halved)
RADAR: Character can generate electro-magnetic waves to navigate in darkness.

takes only half damage from blunt objects blows, falling, or crushing blows.
Character is much more bulky looking than normal for his race.
PHASING: Character can phase his molecules (and those of his clothing/equipment)
through solid objects, but not force fields, for a time equal to the time he can hold his
breath (1/2 CON minutes). This can be done twice per day.
TOTAL CARAPACE: Character's skin is hard (like fingernails) and jointed over
entire body, except the soles of the feet, the palms, and the face. The shell
covers his head, so there is no hair. This has separate Hit Points equal to
1/4 his normal HP. Regenerates at 4 points per day regardless of activity.
Character's speed is reduced by half. Character cannot have FUR mutation.
: Character produces his own food when exposed to sunlight (or equivalent). He
heals 3 times faster than normal when in sunlight. He takes only half damage
from light-based weapons. In darkness, his speed is half normal and he gets only 1
attack per 2 rounds. He suffers 1 die additional damage from cold or heat
based weapons. Chlorophyl in his body makes his blood (but not his skin) green.
: Character can emit a very intense blast of sound. The damage is 15 pts. to
exposed tissue. Inorganic material is unaffected. The type of sound will be
in accordance with the race of the character. This can only be done once every
2 hours and effects everything in a 30 yard radius.

that it will collapse under its own weight. This can be done twice per day.
MASS INCREASE: Character has twice the mass (but not twice the size) of others
of his species. He subtracts 10 points from all damage done to him. His STR
and CON are increased by 2 each. His DEX is decreased by 4. There is no speed
decrease or size increase.
ANTI-LIFE LEECH: Character is immune to LIFE-LEECH. The opponent using it
takes the damage instead.

After 10 minutes, the character stops concentrating, or the levitated object
(person) drifts out of range, the target slowly sinks to the ground.
TELEKINETIC ARM: Character causes a shimmering "arm" of force to materialize
anywhere within 15 yards. The arm has a STR equal to the Character's WILL and

concentrating. Reflected damage is inflicted on the attacker instead. The
first round, all damage is reflected. The second round, half. Third and
subsequent rounds, one-fourth. Non-reflected damage is inflicted on character.

Attack directed at him. This doesn't negate the attack on him, but allows him
to make a "free" attack.

but this damage heals in one day. The Character must eat a full meal within
two hours of using this power, or lose 4 points each of STR, DEX, and CON until
he does eat. If he also has
, he can regenerate body parts in 10 rounds.
INVISIBILITY: Character's body possesses cells that may be altered so that
light passes through them, making him invisible. As long as he doesn't move,
he is completely invisible. If he moves, there is a "ripple effect" at the
edges of his body (a-la PREDATOR). While moving, he is only 85% invisible. An
invisible creature also masks its heat source. Concentration is required to
make the body invisible and does 5 points of one time damage. It lasts until
the character stops it or concentration is needed for something else. He can
attack while invisible, but defending will make him visible. If the character
is rendered unconscious or dead in this state, his body remains invisible. It
does not affect clothing or items.
IMMUNITY TO BACTERIA/POISON: Character has total immunity to all forms of
harmful bacteria, viruses, and poisons. Character need make no CON roll when

DOPPLEGANGER ABILITY: Character can change himself into any living thing he
touches. He will gain or shed body mass if necessary. Gained mass will be
achieved by absorbing the ground. Shed mass will be absorbed by the ground.
He gains all abilities, including Mutations, of the imitated form, but keeps only his
own Mental-based Mutations. The change lasts until the character resumes his natural
form or changes into another. He cannot change into an inorganic object. Androids
are considered organic for this purpose. If the character stays in the imitated form for
more than two days, he loses his own Mutations and is stuck in the imitated form.
TOTAL HEALING (SELF): Character can heal all damage to his own body in three
rounds. It will also cure all poisons and bacteria/viruses. This can be done
twice per week, but not more than once in any 48 hour period. This will not
regenerate lost body parts, but they can be reattached as the power is used.
REGENERATION: Character will regrow a lost body part or organ in 1 month.
EXO-SKELETON: Character's spine, skull, ribs, sternum, pelvis, and kneecaps are

based attacks do double damage.
: Character can absorb any material and convert it to body mass, growing in
size by the absorbed amount. He can absorb up to three times his body mass.
The mass can be held indefinitely and "shed" at any time. Shedding the excess
mass causes 20 pts. damage. If rendered unconscious, Character's body
automatically sheds the excess. Character can use this power to permanently
replace lost limbs in 10 rounds if he also has
E. M. DISRUPTION
: Character can emit, for five rounds, a 10 yard field which interferes with
electrical equipment. No non-shielded robot can function in range. This can

this power or lose 4 points each of STR, DEX, and CON until he does eat.
CONCUSSIVE EYES: Character's eyes can deliver 25 pts. of damage in concussive
force up to 30 yards. This can be done once per 10 rounds. Hit is automatic.
MIMETIC SKIN: Character's skin can mimic any material touched, taking on the
points of the material. Any damage sustained will remain when skin changes to,
or from, normal. The Character can maintain this state for up to 1 hour, and
can do it once per day.
DENSITY CONTROL (SELF)
: Character can will his body's density to increase or decrease by 10%
increments. For each 10% increase, the body loses 10% of its size and speed.

manipulated is twice his WILL score in pounds.
TELEKINETIC FLIGHT: Character can fly by using mental force. Maximum speed is
equal to his sprinting speed.
TELEPORTATION: Character can teleport up to 1 mile. He can teleport to
somewhere he hasn't seen (or can't see), but there is a 80% chance that he will
lose a limb, suffering 40 pts. damage immediately, plus bleeding will lower STR
and CON by 1 point per round until death or aid occurs. This can be done once
per day and he cannot transport others, only himself and the articles he is
WEATHER MANIPULATION: Character can manipulate weather in a 1 mile radius. The
type of weather desired will arrive 5 minutes after 1 minute of concentration.
Only small modifications are possible (max. 20 degree temperature variation,
raise/lower wind, etc.). The power can be used once per day.
TIME TELEPORTATION: Character can send himself or another up to 10 minutes into
the future. The one teleported will disappear in the time of origin and appear
in the target time, skipping the interval. No geographic distance will be
covered. Character that is sent suffers damage equal to half of his existing
Hit Points. Can be used once per week.
TIME SUSPENSION: Character can suspend all action in a 10 yard radius. He is
unaffected. Items and people can be manipulated, but energy devices won't
work. It can be used once a day and lasts 3 minutes or until the Character
stops the Mutation.
TIME DISTORTION: Character can distort his time perception so as to move far
faster than normal. For every round of action, he gets 5. Character takes 10
points friction damage for every round he uses this power. Mechanical and
