A Quick and Dirty Mutations Chart

Last night I was reading An Anthropomorphic Character-Generator for D&D and Variants (a 2d10 idea) from the Disoriented Ranger's blog and it got me to thinking about one of my favorite aspects of Warhammer Fantasy Role-play: chaos mutations. I've always been dissatisfied with the Dark Lore Side Effects table from pg 159 of the RPG book and the Tomb of Corruption, while good, isn't quick enough for me during my games. 

I need my tables to be quick because if I hesitate for even a moment while I'm running my players will take advantage of my perceived indecisiveness. So my charts have to be clean, easy to read affairs, and no more than one or two pages in length. 

This is what I came up with:

Edit: Now you can download it in PDF!


  1. Very neat! Do you mind if people download these pictures? (they're a bit small to view)

  2. I like it! How often would you use it in your game and would you allow for a save?

    And thanks for mentioning me in the process (and kicking the g+ blogger comments...)!

    1. Re: How often would I use it? Right now I'm planning on using it in an upcoming adventure about three weeks from now and then depending on what they do maybe quite a bit more than that.

      As for the save, it depends on if the group elects to use the Taint mechanic or not. If they use it then yes, if not and they choose to go more with the Red Steel approach then no. It's all in how they elect to go.
