Symptoms

Mutations are magical side-effects that occur when an Alorian body is bombarded with magical energies of some kind, causing erratic mutations and changes to occur. These Mutations cause very mixed reactions, some of them being seen as a visual improvement, while some might cause a person to turn into an abnormal monster. Mutations are generally speaking not illegal, but having mutations causes someone to become a target by the inquisition for investigation, as mutations are a telltale sign of some sort of magical encounter or contact with the occult. Mutations are not hereditary and cannot be passed from parent to child, and in most cases, each mutation is slightly different from the next as they are applied at different times, on different hosts, and by different causes. This page explains all the different varieties of mutations, as well as how to acquire them and their rules associated with day to day RP. All Mutations are split up into Categories which are used to understand where certain mutations stem from and how they come about. Read more below.

Acquiring and Curing

Each set of Mutations has a different origin. There currently exist four main types of Mutations: Void Threlwar, Exist Lavvanya, Pagan Marvash, and Monster Cho'Roq. These all have their origins in the Void, Exist, a mixture of either, and Void respectively, as Mutations from the Planar Essence of Aloria do not exist. Below is a bullet point list of each Mutation Category, and how to acquire them. Curing Mutations is not possible through medical means. In most cases, a doctor might be able to amputate or correct a mutated limb or body part, but some mutations are inherently so strongly intertwined with the host that they cannot be removed. There exist however Magic means to clear Mutations, as well as other more occult means of contacting an Arken who might be willing to purify a body at a price.

  • Void Threlwar Mutations: These mutations can be applied by any Character having 6 Proficiency Points in Void Ritualism Skill.
  • Exist Lavvanya Mutations: These mutations can be applied by any Character having 6 Proficiency Points in Lightgiver Ritualism Skill.
  • Pagan Marvash Mutations: These mutations can be applied by any Character having 8 Proficiency Points in Pagan Ritualism Skill.
  • Monster Cho'Roq Mutations: These mutations can be applied by any Character having 6 Proficiency Points in Haunt Ritualism Skill.
  • Additional mechanics may exist for Mutations, for example among Mages, Silven, Greater Vampires, Evocarorum or Artificorum.
  • OOC Rule: You may write mutations into your backstory from an NPC Ritualist or mechanic, but any new mutations must be had IC after your app is Approved.
