I enjoy Fallout 76 and all the random mutations and diseases they’ve thrown into the new game, but I thought it’d be WAY more interesting if when I randomly mutated talons and marsupial legs it would have horrible, horrible visual effects on my character, so with that in mind I started doodling these up in my spare time.

Was going for a nice soft face with a possible psychic brain tumor on the forehead for this one with the idea of “Man I REALLY wanna beat that person’s face in before I attack all these other people..”
Grounded; Energy Resistance +100 Energy Damage -50%
(..yah I know what some of are you gunna say but I was aiming more for a rubber skinned look because it was either that or draw roots coming out of a persons toes and rubber skin seems a bit more interesting and less likely to root a person in place, though people growing plants out of them isn’t a new thing to the setting…)
