    The purpose of these perks is to add new play-styles to seemingly linear races. Before, if you were to pick any other race besides human; you would be shoehorned into playing a combat-oriented character. These perks are intended to be implemented in tandem with my Racial TRAIT list.

    Supermutant Perks

    Brutish Façade

Whenever you put on your façade in conversation or combat you are more likely to get your way. Only super mutants can take this perk. Requirements: Intelligence 8(edited)
