Notes

Acid-based techniques do extra damage vs. opponents with writhing flesh. These include:


If you win a fight with less than 50% HP, gain <some amount> of HP along with one of the following message:

With Perception as your highest base stat:

Your wounds knit over with thousands of tiny, staring eyes.

(Hidden: Gives ~Greatly Increased Chance of Perception XP to stat gains for that fight)

With Reflexes as your highest base stat:

Your body twists, wounds healing as your limbs become longer and more nimble.

(Hidden: Gives ~Greatly Increased Chance of Reflexes XP to stat gains for that fight)

With Strength as your highest base stat (or a tie among highest):

Lumps of knotted muscle and flesh knit over your wounds.

(Hidden: Gives ~Greatly Increased Chance of Strength XP to stat gains for that fight)

With Will as your highest base stat:

Your wounds heal, seemingly of their own volition.

(Hidden: Gives ~Greatly Increased Chance of Will XP to stat gains for that fight)

And with preserved cell culture equipped:

<one of the four messages above> The preserved cell sample you're carrying twitches and appears to grow in response.
