Mutant Encounter for MA1e: Aquatazons!

Are they friend or foe, let your players find out!

The Aquatazons or Water-women, are found in and around large bodies of salt water (Deck 15) or in flooded areas. They are a combination of Human and Dolphin DNA. There are NO males in this Mutation. The Aquatazons can reproduce with Pure Human and Mutant Males. They prefer mutants with water-born mutations.

Armor Class: 7                       Hit Points: 45
Movement: 4 land, 10 water
Radiation resistance: 13          Constitution: 12
Mental Resistance: 11             Strength: 14
Dexterity: 15

Defect: Skin Structure Change - extremely vulnerable to fire damage and cannot remain out of water for more than a few hours without drying out and dying.

Mutations: Cetacean (Mutation Manual; pg. 4) Mutant is kin to dolphins and has webbed fingers and toes allowing great swimming speeds. They also breathe through a blowhole in their head, and can hold their breath for upwards of 15 minutes in or out of water. They see underwater using echolocation.

Normal Reaction: If approached peacefully the Aqutazons can be traded with. Certain hunting parties may retreat or attack on sight depending on the situation. They prize any tech or gadgets that can be used on or underwater, especially weapons.

Attacking: Aquatazons are masters of the calm water ambush. They make use of their breath holding ability to make opponents believe they have fled or they wait just below the surface for unwary prey on a boat or shore then shoot out of the water throwing harpoons or hooked nets. They have been known to use tridents, and specially modified Slug Rifle (type 2) that fires a barbed and tethered spear!

1) Fresh water breeds of Aquatazon have been encountered elsewhere.
2) Some believe that those who accept deals of procreation with the Water-women are eaten at the deals conclusion.
3) There is an Aquatazon city at the bottom of the great sea on Deck 15.
