Re: New Ds Mutation - Titan

There are some other Ds mutations that just feel like negatives or that I got jipped on the die roll. Titan mutation would just add a bit of flavor... Strength and some extra AC would be a good offset for the lower EV. I suggested the Pan lord sized tile because it was that way in my dream lol.

New Ds Mutation - Titan

Had a dream last night where I got my Ds the Titan mutation. It did something to the effect of increasing the size of the character from Med->Large->Giant->Huge with a pan lord size tile at mutation level 3. The giant/huge levels grant the walk through deep water and other resistances. Or maybe gian...
