Physical Description[edit]

Mutants, somewhere down their lineage, were once human. Through years of exposure to radiation, their bodies have been twisted.

Dwarves have had their height permanently halted. They are never taller than 4’10”, and their body has adapted by making them stockier.

Beastlords are lanky humans with darker skin due to their exposure to the harsh sun for extended periods of time. Due to their mutation, they developed a unique form of telepathy.

Slags, due to radiation and decades spent underground, are extremely pale. They are slightly shorter, and have larger eyes and lankier arms than most people.

Swampfolk are large, warty people with features often related with inbreeding.


Before the bombs dropped, mutants were normal humans. While dwarves and beastlords hold no unique history beyond living in high radiation zones, slags and swampfolk have unique history.

Slags were originally a secret militia formed in California. When the Great War was declared, they sedated themselves in a secret, makeshift, underground bunker. When the citizens of Modoc built a large farm atop their bunker, they scared the farmer away using paint to make themselves look like ghosts. Thanks to the Chosen One, they were eventually encorporated into Modoc itself.

The swampfolk were an anti-social group living in the swamps of Point Lookout State Park, Maryland. They were incredibly hostile to outsiders, even before the war.


The dwarves and slags quickly made their way into traditional human society relatively quickly and are treated as normal citizens.

Beastlords formed a cult of raiders keen on cannibalism. After the destruction of their leader, they dispersed. While most made their way to other raider bands, some tried to transition into society using their telepathy to make themselves useful herders.

Swampfolk, while immediately aggressive to anyone on their territory, are known to trade with surrounding societies. They mark said territory with pillars of bone and torn doll heads. Though few live to learn of it, they worship Ug-Qualtoth, which bears many resemblances to the gods found in the writings of H.P. Lovecraft.

Mutants generally follow the same naming conventions as non-irradiated humans.
