Similar to that of a human but with obvious differences, in most cases the mutant's physical body may be deformed or their characteristics may be more animalistic although there are few mutants with no obvious differences apart from their extraordinary and in-human abilities.
Nearly all Classes suit the mutant race due to the variety offered by the many options given by the race.
Logan is a mutant barbarian. He wandered the frozen north and found his home amognst a tribe of savage natives. His healing factor, claws and metal skeletal have made the tribe consider him their new champion and he has found a simple if enjoyable life.
Scott is a mutant warlord. He trains every day with his optic blasts and psionic talents to better mutant cooperation between other races. He has mentored and lead three adventuring teams to spread the word of his message and so far it seems to be a success.
Roleplaying a Mutant
When creating a Mutant adventurer, here are a few points to consider.
Roll for dramatic and mixed experiences: When creating a mutant it is required to roll for traits (unless your gm says otherwise) to create a more real and dramatically spontaneous experience for you, your companions and your GM. Not to mention the obvious added bonuses.
Mutant Characteristics: Similar to that of a human but with obvious differences, in most cases the mutant's physical body may be deformed or their characteristics may be more animalistic although there are few mutants with no majorly obvious differences apart from their extraordinary and in-human abilities.
Minor evolution: +2 to a skill of your choice. You can take this feat more than once.
Adaptive cells: You gain resist 5 to a specified type of damage. Each time you take this feat, choose another damage type. (untyped/normal damage as well as ongoing damage are not included in the list.) Metastatic
Paragon feats: Advanced Evolution: Gain an additional secondary or primary trait as long as you have all required prerequisites.
Epic feats: Superior Evolution: Gain an additional secondary or primary trait as long as you have all required prerequisites.
