Obsolete: This article refers to an aspect of the game which has been removed. It is retained for historical reference only.

Eating flesh from a mutagenic corpse grants a living character a random mutation. Eating mutagenic flesh provides no nutrition.

If you feel like gambling with mutations, you can try scarfing down every mutagenic corpse-leaving monster you cross paths with (sky beasts and ugly things are the more common examples). This is quite risky, as some mutations can easily doom a promising character. Alternatively, you can use mutagenic corpses as makeshift potions of cure mutation if you've accumulated several bad mutations; it's still risky, but you might end up better off than you were.
