Mutations are split into six groups: Basic, Innate, Extraordinaire, Supernatural, Spell-like and Psi-like. All evolutionists have access to these mutations. In addition to these, there are a number of special lists of mutations accessible only to evolutionists of specific creature types or who take specific feats. Unless otherwise noted, a character can only take the same mutation up to a number of times equal to his mutator level. A character’s mutator level is equal to the sum of his levels in mutation-granting classes plus any racial hit dice or levels in racial paragon classes he might have. Mutator level also determines the power of some mutations, and whenever a mutation allows a save, the DC is 10 + half the character’s mutator level + relevant ability modifier (see the specific mutation for this).

Mutations and Appearance

Most mutations, innate mutations in particular, make a tangible and obvious change to the evolutionist’s body. In the broader aspect, the nature of the change is dictated by the mutation. Gaining a bite attack will give you prominent teeth, claws will enlarge his fingernails, tentacles will grow out of… somewhere. But as that ‘somewhere’ says, the specifics of the change are up to the evolutionist. Tentacles can grow on his back, on his waist, on his face. A bite attack can give him vampiric fangs or give him a crocodilian mouth. Natural armor can give him reptilian scales or the chitinous shell of an arthropod. The more mutations, the more prominent the changes become and the less like his original self the evolutionist will look. Don’t even get me started on teratomorphisms or type changes from Mutant Ascendancy, when those things happen, you can pretty much go wild.

Mutation Prerequisites

A number of mutations have prerequisites; some have a mutator level prerequisite while others have special abilities as prerequisites. When a mutation has a special attack or ability as a prerequisite, it can be supplied by mutations or by any other permanent means (racial abilities, class features, etc) available to the character.

Mutation Presentation

Name: The mutation’s name.

Prerequisite: The mutation’s prerequisites. Ability Score: Which Ability score governs the mutation’s save, if any.

Benefit: What the mutation does. Further Mutations: What the character gains from taking the mutation more times and how many times the mutation can be taken, if it has any unusual limits. If this entry is left empty, the mutation’s basic benefit is received once more (stacking with itself) whenever the mutation is taken. If a mutation can be taken “up to once per X mutator levels”, divide the character’s mutator level by ‘X’ and round the result up to determine how many instances of the mutation he can take.

If the evolutionist has more than one natural weapon, he must decide which is the primary and which are the secondary ones upon taking the mutations, that choice can be changed whenever the evolutionist gains new mutations. If the evolutionist has multiple sets of the same natural weapon, only one group (one bite, one pair of claws, etc) can be the primary. The evolutionist can have up to one bite and gore per head, one tail, four tentacles, and up to one claw or slam per arm (any combination of these, but no more than one of each per limb), if he chooses to, he may evolve only one claw, tentacle or slam instead of a pair, but each still costs a mutation.

Further Mutations: -

Barbs

Prerequisite: Quills, Spines. Ability Score: Dexterity

A crush attack affects as many creatures as can fit under the evolutionist’s body. Creatures in the affected area must succeed on a Reflex save or be pinned, automatically taking bludgeoning damage during the next round unless the evolutionist moves off them. If the evolutionist chooses to maintain the pin, it is treated as a normal grapple attack (but multiple opponents can be kept pinned in this way with no penalty). Pinned opponents take damage from the crush each round if they don’t escape. A crush attack deals the same damage as the evolutionist’s Slam attack. Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once.

Diseases delivered through injury can be delivered through piercing or slashing attacks, and contact diseases can be delivered through any natural attacks. The save DC for any diseases you deliver is equal to the DC for mutations, not the normal DC for the disease. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the evolutionist can choose a new disease to incubate and become immune to. This mutation can be taken once per five mutator levels.

Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the evolutionist can either gain resistance to a new element or increase an existing resistance by 5. If the evolutionist increases any of his elemental resistances to 25, he gains immunity to that form of damage.

This mutation can be taken once per four mutator levels.

Frightful Presence Prerequisite: Mutator level 4. Ability Score: Charisma Benefit: Whenever the evolutionist critically hits, performs a charge or uses a special ability, all enemies within 60 ft are forced to make a will save or become frightened for 1 round.

Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the duration of the paralysis increases by 1 round. This mutation can be taken once per four mutator levels.

Impale

Prerequisite: Improved Grab, Quills, Mutator level 3. Ability Score: None

Benefit: Whenever the evolutionist initiates a grapple with a target at least two size categories smaller than him, he may attempt to impale his opponent on his quills. Attempting to impale an opponent is a free action that can be taken immediately after winning a grapple check against the victim, forcing a second grapple check, if the evolutionist wins, the target is impaled on his quills. As long as the evolutionist’s grappled opponent is impaled, he is not considered to be in a grapple himself, he may have one impaled opponent at any given time An impaled victim takes damage from the evolutionist’s quills at the end of every round it remains impaled. Further Mutations: For each time this mutation is taken after the first, the evolutionist may impale one additional opponent on his quills. This mutation can be taken once per four mutator levels.

Improved Grab

Prerequisite: Any natural attack. Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist chooses one type of natural weapon he has. Whenever the evolutionist hits a creature at least one size category smaller than him with that weapon, he can attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. No initial touch attack is required. The evolutionist has the option to conduct the grapple normally, or simply use the part of his body he used in the improved grab to hold the opponent. If he chooses to do the latter, he takes a -20 penalty on grapple checks and may not used that natural weapon to attack, but is not considered grappled himself; the evolutionist does not lose his Dexterity bonus to AC, still threatens an area, and can use his remaining attacks against other opponents. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, it applies to a different natural weapon.

Ink

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: None

Benefit: While underwater, the evolutionist can emit a cloud of jet-black ink 10 feet high by 10 feet wide by 10 feet long once per minute as a free action. The dimensions of this cloud increase by 10 for every size category above medium. The cloud provides total concealment. All vision within the cloud is obscured. The cloud lasts for one minute, half that in moving water, or one round in turbulent waters. This mutation can be used while not underwater, as a swift action, as a ranged touch attack with a range increment equal to the dimensions of the cloud (10 feet for a medium evolutionist), the target is blinded until he takes a standard action to clean the ink from his eyes. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the dimensions of the cloud increase by 10 feet and the time the evolutionist must wait between uses is reduced by one round (to a minimum of one round). This mutation can be taken once per two mutator levels.

Jet

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: None

Benefit: As a full-round action, the evolutionist can move up to five times his land speed in a straight line, this movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity. Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once per three mutator levels, increasing the movement speed multiplier by two each time it is taken.

Maul Prerequisite: Bash. Ability Score: Strength

Benefit: The target of the evolutionist’s bash must make a fortitude save or be stunned for 1 round. The save DC is increased by 1 for each time the bash mutation has been taken. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the stun duration increases by 1 round. This mutation can be taken once per four mutator levels.

Mutilate

Prerequisite: Bite natural weapon, mutator level 7. Ability Score: Strength

Benefit: The evolutionist’s bite causes grievous wounds and can ever tear off limbs from his target. As a swift action, after successfully delivering a bite attack to his target or whenever he scores a critical hit with a bite attack (without need for a swift action), the evolutionist can trash and rend at his opponent’s flesh. The evolutionist’s target must succeed on a fortitude save or the evolutionist damages one of his arms or legs (of the evolutionist’s choice) to the point of inutility. An inutilized arm cannot be used to wield a weapon, shield or material components, nor can it be used for anything else, an inutilized leg halves the target’s movement speed, prevents him from running or charging and requires a DC 5 balance check each round (and whenever the victim suffers an attack) to keep standing, a creature with both legs inutilized cannot move except by crawling up to 5 feet as a standard action. Furthermore, even if the victim succeeds its save, the wound bleeds profusely, dealing 1 point of damage on each round, the bleed damage from multiple wounds stacks. Inutilized arms and legs can be restored with a Regeneration spell and similar effects and abilities. The bleeding caused by this ability can be stopped by any healing spell. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken after the first, the bleed damage from the wound increases by 1 per round. This ability can be taken once per four mutator levels.

Poison

Prerequisite: Any natural attack. Ability Score: Constitution

Benefit: The evolutionist chooses one type of natural weapon he has that deals piercing or slashing damage. Attacks with that natural weapon inflict their victim with poison, dealing 1d3 points of damage to one ability score chosen at the time the mutation is taken, this is both the primary and secondary damage of the evolutionist’s poison. A fortitude save prevents the evolutionist's poison from dealing any damage. Further Mutations: The evolutionist has three choices when taking additional instances of this mutation: Choose a new natural weapon to add poison to. Increase the damage of all existing poison that affect one ability score by one step. Add an additional type of ability damage to the poison of one of his natural weapons. This mutation can be taken up to once per three mutator levels.

Pounce

Prerequisite: Two natural weapons, mutator level 5. Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist can make a full attack at the end of a charge. Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once.

Quills

Prerequisite: Any natural attack. Ability Score: Strength

Benefit: The evolutionist grows long quills over his body. When a creature attacks the evolutionist with a natural or handheld weapon, or makes a touch attack (even with a beneficial spell), 1d4 quills automatically strike it, dealing 1 point of piercing damage each. Also, any creature that suffers this damage must make a reflex save, or the quill breaks and lodges in her flesh. A lodged quill imposes a -1 penalty on attacks, saves and skill checks, these penalties stack. Removing the quill requires a DC 14 Heal check and doing so deals another 1d4 points of damage. Once per round, as a free action, the evolutionist can chose to expose or retract her quills (creatures touching or attacking the evolutionist while the quills are retracted don’t have to worry about them). Quills are considered natural weapons. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken after the first, the number of quills that strike an attacker increases by one step (to 1d6 for the second mutation) and the DC on the heal check to remove a quill increases by +2. This mutation can be taken once per two mutator levels.

Rake

Prerequisite: Claws natural attack. Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist gains two rake attacks as secondary natural weapons dealing the same damage as his claws. Rakes can be used at no penalty during grapples, but can only be used when grappling or pouncing. Rakes benefit from any other mutations applied to the evolutionist’s claws and are considered secondary natural weapons. Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken up to once per seven mutator levels.

Rend

Prerequisite: Any pair of slashing or piercing natural attacks (claws, pincers, tentacles, etc). Ability Score: None

Benefit: When the evolutionist hits an opponent with both natural attacks of a pair, he automatically deals extra damage equal to the twice the damage of the natural weapons used. This mutation only applies to one pair of natural weapons each time it is taken, even if the evolutionist has more than two of the chosen attack. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, it applies to another pair of natural weapons.

Rock Catching

Prerequisite: Rock Throwing Ability Score: None

Benefit: Once per round, the evolutionist can try to catch a projectile attack aimed at him if the projectile has up to the weight he could throw with Rock Throwing (so, arrows, javellins, catapult shots, etc). To do so, he must make an attack roll as a free action, if the result of this attack roll is greater than that of the attacker, the evolutionist may catch the projectile in his hand. This ability cannot be used to catch energy attacks. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the evolutionist gains the ability to catch one additional attack per round. This mutation can be taken up to once per four mutator levels.

Rock Throwing

Prerequisite: Slam natural attack Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist can hurl substantially large and heavy objects (such as rocks), weighting up to one quarter of his light load with a range increment of 30 ft. these attacks deal damage equal to that of the evolutionist’s slam attack and benefit from any effects that would modify it, as well as any effecta that would benefit attacks with thrown weapons. Each size category the evolutionist has above medium increases the range increment of his rock throwing by 10 ft. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken after the first, the evolutionist gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls with objects thrown with this ability. This mutation can be taken up to once per three mutator levels. Special: This ability can be used to make iterative attacks. Objects meant to be thrown with this ability may be enchanted as magic weapons.

Scent

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist gains scent and a +2 bonus on search and survival checks when using scent. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken after the first increases the evolutionist’s bonus on search and survival checks when using scent by 2. Special: Taking this mutation once removes mundane anosmia, but not magical anosmia.

Slime

Prerequisite: Elemental Resistance, Mutator level 3. Ability Score: Constitution

Benefit: The evolutionist’s body produces a destructive substance that deals damage to anything that touches it. Any creature that successfully hits the evolutionist with a natural attack suffers 2d6 points of energy damage (chosen at the time this mutation is taken, from among the energy types the evolutionist has resistance to), any manufactured weapon that strikes the evolutionist takes this same damage, any creature that grapples or is grappled by the evolutionist also takes this damage once per round on his turn. A reflex save halves this damage. The evolutionist can stop producing the slime as a free action and resume producing it as a free action as well. The slime does not discriminate between objects and creatures, and it will harm the evolutionist’s gear if it is not properly protected. The evolutionist himself can protect his equipment against his own slime in a process that takes one minute per item and lasts for 24 hours. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the damage done by the slime increases by 2d6. This mutation can be taken once per three mutator levels.

Spell Resistance

Prerequisite: Mutator level 5 Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist gains Spell Resistance 10 or increases any existing spell resistance by 5. Further Mutations: You can take this mutation once per four mutator levels.

Spines

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist can use the spines on his body as ranged weapons. Spines have the following statistics:

Damage (medium): 1d6

Critical: 20/x2

Range Increment: 60gy

Firing a volley of spines is a standard action, and each volley can have a number of spines equal to the number of times this mutation was taken, each spine requires its own attack roll. The spines granted by this mutation are considered natural weapons and thrown weapons, but only gain bonus damage equal to half the evolutionist’s strength modifier. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the evolutionist can shoot one additional spine with each volley. This mutation can be taken once per three mutator levels.

Sprint

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: None.

Benefit: Once per hour, the evolutionist can move ten times its normal speed when he makes a charge. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the wait time between uses i s reduced by 10 minutes, to a minimum of once per minute.

Stench

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: Constitution

Benefit: As a swift action, the evolutionist can release a foul-smelling substance that fills an area of 30 feet around him with a disgusting smell. Every creature with a sense of smell within that radius (or twice that radius for creatures with scent) must make a fortitude save or be sickened for 10 rounds. Any one creature can only be affected by the evolutionist’s stench once per day. After it is activated, this ability remains active until deactivated. Deactivating this ability requires a swift action. Further Mutations: Each mutation after the first increases the radius of the stench by 10 feet. If this mutation is taken at least six times, creatures within half the maximum radius that fail their saves are nauseated instead. This mutation can only be taken once per two mutator levels.

Swallow Whole

Prerequisite: Mutator level 5, Improved Grab related to a bite natural attack, Large size of larger. Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist can swallow a grabbed opponent at least two size categories smaller than him by making a successful grapple check. A swallowed creature takes 1d8+4 points of bludgeoning damage plus 4 points of acid damage each round from the evolutionist’s gizzard, for each size category the evolutionist has above large, this damage increases by 1d8+4 bludgeoning and 4 acid. A swallowed opponent can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 20 (+5 damage per size category above large) points of damage to the gizzard (AC 10 + half the evolutionist’s natural armor). Once the opponent exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. The gizzard of a large evolutionist can hold up to 1 small, 4 tiny, 16 diminutive or 64 fine or smaller opponents. Each size category above large quadruples these values (the evolutionist can hold one creature two size categories smaller than himself. Should he desire to, the evolutionist can vomit the contents of his stomach as a full round action. Further Mutations: Each time after the first that this mutation is taken the damage dealt by the evolutionist’s gizzard increases by 1d8+4 and the acid damage by 4. In addition, the gizzard can hold one additional creature two size categories smaller than him (or an appropriate number of smaller creatures), should the evolutionist be able to swallow four creatures two size categories smaller than him, he gains the ability to swallow one creature one size category smaller than his. This mutation can be taken once per five mutator levels. Special: If the evolutionist has energy damage tied to his bite attack or a breath weapon dealing energy damage, he can chose for creatures in his stomach to be dealt that kind of damage instead of acid upon taking this mutation. Also, if the evolutionist has at least one instance of the Amorphous Body teratomorphism, he may use this mutation in conjunction with any natural weapon (not only a bite) in order to engulf his target.

Tail Sweep

Prerequisite: Tail natural weapon, mutator level 3. Ability Score: None

Benefit: As a standard action, the evolutionist can make a tail attack using a single attack roll and a single damage roll against all enemies in a cone with a length equal to his reach with his tail. As a full round action, he can make one tail attack against every opponent within reach using the same attack roll and damage roll. Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once per four mutator levels. Each time it is taken after the first allows the evolutionist to make one additional attack against all targets in range with each tail sweep.

Trample

Prerequisite: Large size or larger Ability Score: Strength

Benefit: The evolutionist can trample any opponent at least one size category smaller than him through whose space he moves. Any creature whose space is completely covered by the evolutionist’s space is subject to the trample attack. If a target’s space is larger than 5 feet, it is only considered trampled if the evolutionist moves over all the squares it occupies, if he moves over only some of a target’s space, the target can make an attack of opportunity against the evolutionist at a -4 penalty. If the evolutionist accidentally ends his movement in an illegal space he returns to the last legal position he occupied, or the closest legal position, if there’s a legal position that’s closer. A trample attack deals bludgeoning damage equal to the evolutionist’s Slam damage and also allows him to attempt to overrun the trampled opponent as a free action. Trampled opponents can attempt attacks of opportunity, but these take a -4 penalty. If they do not make attacks of opportunity, trampled opponents can attempt Reflex saves to take half damage. The evolutionist can only deal trampling damage to each target once per round; no matter how many times his movement takes him over a target creature. Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once.

Web

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: Constitution

Benefit: The evolutionist can spin webs a number of times per day equal to 3 + his constitution modifier. The web works as an attack with a net, but with a maximum range of 50 feet and no range increment, and is effective against targets up to one size category larger than the evolutionist. The web entangles and anchors the target in place, allowing no movement. An entangled creature can escape the web by succeeding on a Escape Artist check with the same DC as the normal save for mutations or burst the web with a Strength check against the same DC +4. The web has 6 hit points, hardness 5, and takes double damage from fire. The evolutionist can also create sheets of sticky webbing. They can position these to snare flying creatures or try to trap prey on the ground. Approaching creatures must succeed on a DC 20 Spot check to notice a web, or they stumble into it and become trapped as though by a successful web attack. Attempts to escape or burst the webbing receive a +5 bonus if the trapped creature has something to walk on or grab while pulling free. Each 5-foot-square section has 6 hit points, hardness 5, and takes double damage from fire. Used this way, the web can cover a radius of 5 feet for every three class levels for each use of web, preparing these traps takes one minute. The evolutionist can move across his own sheet of web as if it had a climb speed of 20 feet and can determine the exact location of any creature touching the web as long as he is contact with it. After 24 hours, any existing web hardens and loses its stickiness. The hardened web becomes brittle, which reduces the difficulty of escaping the web with an escape artist check or bursting the web with a strength check to 10. After 48 hours the web turns to dust. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken after the first, the evolutionist gains 3 additional daily uses of web. For every two instances of this mutation taken, all DCs to escape the web increase by 1.

SUPERNATURAL MUTATIONSEdit

Breath Weapon

Prerequisite: Elemental resistance. Ability Score: Constitution

Benefit: The evolutionist can breathe out an area elemental attack as a standard action. This attack deals 1d6 points of damage per mutator level (max: 10d6) to all creatures in a cone or in a line (the area is chosen upon taking the mutation) in front of the evolutionist, a reflex save halves the damage dealt. A cone breath has a length of the 10 ft., plus 5 ft. per two mutator levels, a line has a length of 20 ft, plus 5 ft. per mutator level. Once the evolutionist uses his breath weapon, he must wait five rounds before using it again. For each size category the evolutionist has above medium, the length of a cone increases by 20 feet and the length of a line increases by 30 feet. The breath weapon’s damage type must be one the evolutionist has resistance or immunity to, and is chosen at the moment the mutation is taken. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken after the first, the evolutionist can chose to gain a new, separate breath weapon (with its own cooldown), the evolutionist cannot have more than one breath weapon of any one damage type. The evolutionist may also choose to increase the maximum damage of one existing breath weapon by 10d6 or reduce the cooldown of one existing breath weapon by one round, to a minimum of two rounds.

Captivating Song

Prerequisite: Mutator level 7. Ability Score: Charisma

Benefit: When the evolutionist sings, all creatures within a 100-foot spread must succeed on a Will save or become captivated. This is a sonic mind-affecting charm effect. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same evolutionist’s song for 24 hours. Like a bard’s music, starting to sing is a standard action, and continuing the songs afterwards requires concentration. A captivated victim walks toward the evolutionist, taking the most direct route available. If the path leads into a dangerous area (through flame, off a cliff, or the like), that creature gets a second saving throw. Captivated creatures can take no actions other than to defend themselves. (Thus, a fighter cannot run away or attack but takes no defensive penalties.) A victim within 5 feet of the evolutionist stands there and offers no resistance to his attacks. The effect continues for as long as the evolutionist sings and for 1 round thereafter. A bard’s countersong ability allows the captivated creature to attempt a new Will save. Further Mutations: Each mutation after the first increases the radius of the effect by 100 feet. This mutation can be taken once per four mutator levels.

Change Shape

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist can change shape as a standard action, suppressing his innate, extraordinaire and supernatural mutations and teratomorphisms and returning to his original form, this ability cannot be used to assume the form of a different creature. The evolutionist also gains the shapechanger subtype. True seeing effects show the evolutionist’s form with his mutations and teratomorphisms as his true form, and he reverts to his true form upon death. The evolutionist retains the benefits of his basic, spell-like and psi-like mutations, as well as the use of this mutation. This mutation has no effect on any gear you may be wearing when you change shape, evolutionists are advised to keep clothes appropriate for their different size categories if modesty is of any concern to them. Further Mutations: If this mutation is taken a second time, the evolutionist may use it to take the appearance of other members of his original creature type (usually humanoids). When using this ability to disguise himself as a specific individual, the evolutionist gains a +10 bonus on the check. This mutation can be taken up to once per four mutator levels, but no more than twice.

Charm

Prerequisite: - Ability Score: Charisma

Benefit: The evolutionist can attempt to charm a creature of any type within 100 ft. as a standard action.

Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once per three mutator levels. For each instance of this mutation taken after the first the evolutionist reduces the wait time between uses by 1 round. If he takes this mutation three times, it can be used as a move action, if it is taken 5 times, it can be used as a swift action.

Domination

Prerequisite: Charm (any ability that mimics the Charm Person spell), mutator level 11. Ability Score: Charisma

Benefit: The evolutionist can attempt to dominate a creature within 100 feet as per the Dominate Person spell, with the following differences, the creature may be of any type and the effect lasts for 24 hours.

This mutation can be taken once per six mutator levels.

Elemental Attack

Prerequisite: Any natural weapon, Elemental resistance. Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist may choose one type of natural weapon he has, all attacks made with that natural weapon deal an extra 1d6 points of damage of an energy type of the evolutionist’s choice.

Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the evolutionist can add another 1d6 damage of an energy type to which he has resistance to any one of his natural weapons (including the same energy type to the same natural weapon, stacking its effects). This mutation can be taken once per two mutator levels.

Elemental Lance

Prerequisite: Elemental Attack. Ability Score: None

Benefit: The evolutionist can fire a bolt of elemental energy against a target within 60 feet as a ranged touch attack, dealing 1d6 damage for every two mutator levels (for a minimum of 1d6 damage). The elemental lance can deal damage of any type which the evolutionist has an elemental attack mutation, and it deals extra damage equal to the highest elemental attack that matches it (if the evolutionist has applied elemental attack to multiple separate natural weapons, only the highest total damage applies. Using Elemental Lance is a ranged attack action which provokes attacks of opportunity. Further Mutations: Each time this mutation is taken, the evolutionist can fire an extra elemental lance as part of a full attack, and the range of elemental lance increases by 20 feet. All iterative attacks with elemental lances use the evolutionist's highest attack bonus. This mutation can be taken once per five mutator levels.

The evolutionist does not take damage from his own elemental nimbus. A reflex save halves this damage.

Benefit: The evolutionist develops one masterwork version of a manufactured weapon of his choice as an integral part of his anatomy (but it is not a natural weapon), if the chosen weapon is a ranged weapon, he may create common ammunition for it out of his own body at will (reloading still follows the same rules, however), but is also capable of employing any special ammunition he acquires should he wish to.

The integrated weapon must be wielded as a normal weapon of its type (taking up the evolutionist's hands while in use), it cannot be sundered or disarmed, and it can be enchanted as a normal weapon of its type (but the evolutionist must be present for the whole enchanting process).

Deactivating this ability is a free action.

Once the evolutionist has used elemental bomb, he must wait five rounds before using it again. The elemental bomb’s damage type must be one the evolutionist has resistance or immunity to, and is chosen at the moment the mutation is taken. This ability can be treated as a breath weapon for the purposes of metabreath feats and similar abilities that affect these special attacks.

Further Mutations: This mutation can be taken once per three mutator levels, each time it is taken, the duration of the rift increases by two rounds and the maximum damage dealt increases by 5d6 (but it never does more dice of damage than the evolutionist’s mutator level.

The evolutionist (and anyone attempting to resist the effect) gains a +4 bonus on this check for each size category above medium. Additionally, all creatures and objects in the area of the shockwave suffer 1d4 + (Str or Dex mod) bludgeoning damage. A reflex save halves this damage.

His ability can be activated repeatedly to increase the radius of the grove by 5 feet per mutator level each time, to a maximum radius of 1 mile, however, the evolutionist can only have one grove at any given time, and using this ability out of the boundaries of an existing grove breaks the connection with the old one at the same time it creates a new one. The expansion of the grove can be noticed with a Spellcraft check, DC 25. The grove does not persist through the evolutionist’s death. The evolutionist has a few benefits regarding his grove. First, any structures he places on a grove using Budding Creation have a permanent duration. Second, the evolutionist can link up to two verdant servants to his grove, these servants cannot leave the limits of the grove, but they do not count towards his limit.

In addition, the grove produces an additional source of excellent nourishment, available once per day, that works as a Heroes’ Feast spell with a caster level equal to the character’s mutation level.

Elemental Dominion (requires any elemental subtype or the undead or deathless types): The evolutionist's grove gains the elemental dominant traits associated with his elemental subtype. Undead evolutionists apply the minor negative dominant trait to their groves, while deathless evolutionists apply the minor positive dominant trait to their groves.
