Yesterday’s Lab Rat wants equality, NOW!
Mutated animals are available as player characters from the fourth phase of play. The rulebook lists basic stats for over 60 species, and has a system for “mutating” these creatures into playable characters. Not only that, but the system makes it possible to create your own mutated animals, if we haven listed your favorite species.
Sadly, these creatures will start a little behind the eight-ball with regards to equal rights and many humans may have “issues” when confronted with the possibility of a new “pecking order” (Get it? Pecking order! Hah! I kill me!).
Bad puns aside, mutated animals offer a different kind of role-playing experience, with plenty of challenges and a lot of potential.
And some of ‘em just look so darn cute!
