Incite Mutation

This is a sample Wild Talents power originally designed for Greg Stolze’s delightfully weird Progenitor setting. It was intended to be the entire power set for a Tier 4 character.



Incite Mutation 10d+8hd+6wd (U U ; 7 per die; 350 pts)
Useful extras and flaws: Endless +3, If/Then (powers granted by Variable Effect must have Locational) -1, If/Then (only for Variable Effect) -1, If/Then (only to grant powers derived from physical mutation) -1, If/Then (not on self) -1, Variable Effect +4. Capacity: Mass.
Useful extras and flaws: Always On -1, Attached to mutation quality -2, If/Then (not on self) -1, Permanent +4. Capacity: Mass.

You can cause a target other than yourself to physically mutate, granting incredible but disfiguring abilities. You must touch the target. On a successful activation, you transfer dice from your Incite Mutation miracle to a power of your choice that could result from a physical mutation. For instance, you could cause wings to sprout from the target's back, granting them a Flight miracle. Any mutations you incite are tied to particular hit locations (mutation powers must have the Locational flaw).

In addition to the dice you transfer from Incite Mutation, you can also reassign dice from the target's Body and Coordination to the new power. You cannot reduce Body or Coordination below 1 in this way. The target can resist this reassignment if he chooses by rolling Body + Endurance.

You can dismiss the mutations granted by this power whenever you like. If you are killed, the mutations end immediately.

Discworld RPG Review

The Discworld Roleplaying Game is a standalone fantasy RPG written by Phil Masters with rules based on GURPS Fourth Edition by Steve Jackson Games. It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
