These defensive weapons usually cover the mutant’s arms or legs. Treat the touch of each quill as doing dagger damage to the victim. Some mutants may be able to throw their quills a short distance (up to 3 meters). Spines are larger and stronger than quills. Each spine does 1-12 (d12) points of damage if it strikes a target, and these can be thrown in the same manner. Growth of replacement quills or spines takes a minimum of one week.
