I feel like this is a little pointless, and really puts mutants in a tight spot if they don’t have a lot of materials and knowledge of recipes on hand come some unfriendly climate. How am I supposed to stay warm in the winter if I can’t wear pants?
It can be worked around, of course, but I think it’s a little of a needless obstacle to have to overcome. And can someone explain how cat tails can forbid wearing panties? I have watched plenty of anime, bros, I know how this shit works.
The description of the mutation explains that it forbids wearing anything besides cloth pants.
Pants are made of cloth. Jeans are made of cloth. Lots of pants are made of cloth. Can’t wear a damn one of them. Hell, you can’t even wear leg armor, according to this logic. Am I to believe I can’t strap 2 by 4’s to my shins due to my tail lodging itself in place every time I try to put them on?
…and underwear? I mean…come on now.
I don’t think straight up putting your foot down and saying “no, you can’t wear this” is the answer. A debuff, maybe? That sounds more user-friendly and open to interpretation, yes?
A few of those are in already sort of:
Various food allergies/dislikes
Nope - you can’t remove a fusion blaster because that would remove your arm.
Your limbs break then mend, not regrow.[/quote]
would the lizard regen enable you to regrow that arm?[/quote]This is a good point. Even getting past lizard things, why wouldn’t you be able to just “mutate” in an “extra” arm when comes a time you happen to be one arm short? (given targeted mutagens or luck).
Mutations pretty much grow in extra limbs and body parts at a whim at this point, don’t they?
That would lead to an interesting scenario where your regrown arm kind of… falls off, when you take purifier. Maybe.
I still can’t fathom why someone would replace their arm with a fusion blaster, truly. Couldn’t it have been sufficient just strapping the thing to the arm (over the arm or alongside it) and setting up external ports on said arm?
You can turn it into a fusion blaster rifle instead of using it as a CBM. Though this does require a certain level of electronics and fabrication expertise, so someone who doesn’t have the skill to think of doing that might in desperation let it remove the use of their arm in exchange for an integrated weapon. Though obviously it seems like a really short sighted choice.
I’m kind of curious if there are any plans to create Bionic Limb CBMs. People lose limbs all the time after all and the technology even today is fast approaching the point of practical use. Seems like it’d be a logical thing to do once you work out the nervous system control issues that the existence of activated CBMs seem to imply. They wouldn’t heal like your natural limbs of course, but they’d probably have a good bit of inherent durability and you could repair them with the proper skill.
