Anyone could be a mutant.

Your neighbor, sibling, co-worker. Anyone. They might not even know themselves until they start sprouting extra eyes, tentacles, or fangs.

Sometimes they look just like everybody else.

Sometimes only the brain mutates, resulting in strange cravings, urges, and behaviors. Human on the outside, they might feel compelled to kill, drink blood, or build cocoons. Is that guy down the block really going out at night to bowl? Or is he on a quest to devour fresh brains?

For that matter, what's up with those headaches you've been having? Those achey muscles? And is that a "normal" rash or an indicator of something more sinister?

Anyone could be a mutant.

Even you.

Mutant Manual is a supplement for creating mutant characters (including player characters with GM approval). Appropriate for any modern-era campaign, Mutant Manual contains:

  • Over 120 mutant traits, both advantageous and detrimental.
  • Statistics for 56 mutant archetypes and mutant animals.
  • Statistics and history of 12 unique mutants.
  • 20+ New, mutant-specific Edges, Feats, Stunts, Qualities, and power modifiers.

...but the print version only has Pathfinder-compatible Modern Adventures content.

I purchased the Pathfinder edition and received the files for the Savage Worlds edition.

Hi Raphael,
I apologize for the mix-up. You should have received files with content for all 5 supported systems.
You can find the Pathfinder content in the MutantManual_polysystem.pdf file. It should appear by default. (You can view the other systems by showing and hiding the appropriate layers in the document).

In the event that your pdf reader application doesn't support pdf 1.5 features, the file contains MutantManual_tablet_MA.pdf (among others), which is a "flattened" and simplified version of the file.

Please let me know if these files weren't available for you to download as this would indicate an issue with the website.

Due to licensing restrictions, Savage Worlds content has to be in a separate file, but all digital versions have the same files. The only reason we have "Pathfinder Print" and "Savage Worlds Print" set up as separate products is for print on demand orders; there doesn't seem to...See more

Is there a preview of the pathfinder edition?

Hi Paul,
Indeed there is, although the website appears to be pretty stubborn about switching over to it.
In case it's not just me, I've added a link to a custom preview file as well. Thank you for alerting me to the problem.

As with all paNik (digital) products if you buy one system, you get the other four for free. The descriptive and background text is virtually identical between versions; only paragraphs that deal with system mechanics are different between versions.

Thanks again,

Amazing! Thanks for that. I will be getting the POD. Is there any chance this product will be for Hero Lab?

I won't say we'll never partner with Hero Labs but in all honesty it's not likely to happen in the foreseeable future.

We're only a 2-person company (not counting freelancers and conscripted "volunteers") so our available development time gets eaten up pretty quickly with what little development we're able to get done.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
