Opening this post to debate about the Large Mutation and wether is should be set as a threshold mutation or an open mutation to other branches.
To sum it up, you got four different types of this mutation chain.
Inconveniently Large -> Large ->
Freakishly Huge -> Huge
Inconveniently Large and Freakishly Huge both come with The pro of their increased strength and carry weight and the con of their increased encumbrance.
That con being removed once you take on Huge and Large mutation which removes this encumbrance.
The only catch is that these can only be gained if you reach the thresholds for them.
So any branch’s that chooses anything other than Ursine or Cattle branch will be stuck with the 2 prior mutations that are more detrimental than beneficial.
But it not the cons that are the catch for me; getting bad mutations is just some of the risks you play when it comes to mutating.
No. It’s the fact that these branches have both of the mutations to offset these negative effects, but only can make use of one.
I mean, wouldn’t it be more appropriate for the Cattle and Ursine branch to have both Freakishly Huge and Huge within their threshold and Inconveniently Large and Large as a open mutation to the other branches?
Maybe, maybe not.
So I’m interested to know what others think of this and if the Large Mutation should stay as a threshold mutation or should it be opened up for other branches to access as well.
