This was one of the first illustrations I finished for the upcoming Mortasheen role playing game by CPR Studios, and I could probably do better by now, but it still does a good enough job demonstrating the "mutants," Mortasheen's dominant "people" who collect and train its many grisly battle-monsters. While recognizably descended from humans, they can vary in deformity from only subtly "off" to a tangled, crawling pile of human limbs and still thrive (indefinitely, since they don't naturally age) in Mortasheen city's acidic and virulent atmosphere.
I still can't say when the RPG will get a release date, but why don't you roll up a mutant in the meantime? You won't have to use random generation for player characters, but random generation tables can be fun to play with and I have fun writing them!
Start off in your head with something that could pass for a normal human in our world, then apply the following:
STEP ONE: roll a ten sided die (here's an online die roller [link]) to decide your total number of mutations. If you roll a five, you've got five different deformities to determine!
STEP TWO: to determine the nature of each mutation, roll the d10 twice. The first number tells you which category to pick from (eyes, limbs, etc.), while the second number tells you the specific mutation you get from that category. If you roll a 3 and a 2, that's "mouth" and "on the end of a fleshy trunk or proboscis." Yay for you!
If you roll the same body part more than once, you can choose between them, stack/mesh them whichever way works, or (the fun option) add it as an entire extra part. Roll "head" twice, and you can have two heads!
If you draw your mutant, let me know and I'll collect it for a gallery on bogleech!
