how much mutation makes you a "burn the mutant!" in 40k?
is it just a visual check or gene screenings for everyone?

>> No.20534017

Depends on the planet. You make the rules.

>> No.20534018

Usually, physical (notable, of course), psychic powers. Some mutations might be more tolerable than others (strange eyecolour) in some planets. In others, it might get you into the stake.

Also, certain institutions and such might make the individual pass through different tests, depending on the technology level, etc.

>> No.20534042

It varies. Very little is stable across the entire breadth and width of the Imperium. On some worlds, any kind of mutation whatsoever is considered purge-worthy. On others, nobody cares, or all it means is you have to get a license.

>> No.20534170

shrine worlds are fairly strict, with the most loose on the subject allowing mutants to exists as long as the mutation is just disfigurement and grants no actual special abilities and even them they work them like asses
hiveworlds' slums allow mostly anything since authority does not visit them often

>> No.20534183

forgot to say, the on most notorious exemption being Ogryn, who most of the ecclesiarchy loves since they only need hear 'is for the emprah' to comply, they also make few questions and are a good source of manual labor

>> No.20534634

Navigators can be spotted out of the crowd immediately, what with having a third eye that is a gateway to the warp for anybody who looks into it. Beastmen are sometimes used among guardsmen, Ogryn and Ratlings are also included.

It's based on the stability of the mutations, who the progenitor of the mutation is, and how far it deviates from the holy image of the human form.

>> No.20534694

heck I think on some planets even the governors are mutants!

It all depends if it's an inherited/natural mutation or if it's a chaos caused one I think.

>> No.20536307

Got a mole? BURN THE MUTANT!

>> No.20536371

my understanding is stable adaptive mutations are tolerated as long as they're useful - see ogyrn. So like if a planet is inhabited by people with gills it might not be burn the heretic time if it's a water world

It also seems like some of the stable mutations could be vestiges of genetic alteration by the original settlers, but that's all Dark Age of Technology level stuff

>> No.20536402

why dont they succumb to chaos in hiveworlds

>> No.20536439

If your skin is too darkly pigmented, you are labeled a mutant and burned.

That's why there are no black people in 40k.

>> No.20536478

>is it just a visual check or gene screenings for everyone?

Literally every multiple choice question like this regarding 40k is a 'Yes'. How do you not get the setting isn't uniform in its standards yet?

>> No.20536570

Does it make noticeably very different from those around you? Is there a lot of local devotion to the Ecclesiarchy? Then you burn.

The one exception is abhumans - they're tolerated because despite not being baseline human, their mutation is stable, so they're less twisted mutant and more like a subspecies.

>> No.20536599


>> No.20536691

Yes, but no ordinary citizens. The Astartes are special and have all kinds of augmentations that would be considered mutations if they showed up in an ordinary imperial citizen.

>> No.20536740

Even for the Astartes, being charcoal black is strange. But nobody gives a fuck because Salamanders are bros anyway.

>> No.20536789

so, then, if a child was born with all the abilities (or manifested them while a teen) of a Space Marine the Ecclesiarchy would track 'em, find 'em, and kill 'em?

Salamanders aren't black, they're blackened.

>> No.20536937

Well, for one, they often do. The Mordian Iron Guard's entire fluff is that they're recruited from a planetary defense force that fights cults and cannibals all day every day.
Secondly, Chaos isn't logical.

On Necromunda, psychic powers are present in one of every ten people, noticed or not. Minor mutation is literally universal. Necromunda will never be cleansed, in spite of this. It's useful to destroy, it's too dense to map let alone conquer, and its feudal system is too pervasive to be overthrown.

>> No.20536953

No, if they manifested an organ that let them eat brains to gain knowledge, that would be freaky and need destruction.
If they were just the best human warrior their clan had ever known, that would warrant recruitment for any number of Imperial agencies.

>> No.20537006

what if the child naturally got the physical aspets of a spess muhreen, as in strenght, stamina, speed, agility, and intelligence. So then they are super awesome warur and the actual muhreens recruit/kidnap him to fight xeno scum and heretics, he gets DAT GENE SEED and becomes ULTRA SPESS MARYSUEMARINE! Basically a primarch without being a primarch.

Depends on the planet and any inqusitors (witch hunters) that coming poking around. Some mutants (abhumans) are wild accepted such as Ogryns or Ratlings. Back in the day there was even some beastmen IG regiments which may or may not be canon now.

>> No.20537421

Read a book where the Imperial Guard had a conversation with the Ecclesiarchy regarding mutation. The Guard commander reported locals in the area to be mutated. The Ecclesiarchy asked if they were natural mutations, to be expected every so-often from birth defects, or whether they were mutations of the warp. The former meant the commander was guilty of wasting the Cardinal's time. The latter meant the commander and his entire unit would get killed for having contact with a creature of the warp.

>> No.20537491


>> No.20537573

Generally speaking, someone is a mutant when their mutations are unstable.

Two Ogryn will produce an Ogryn. Two regular humans will produce a regular human. Two Ratlings a ratling, and so on and so forth. These are "acceptable" mutations in the human genetic code, because they are stable, predictable, and caused by time and evolution, rather than the warp. These kinds of "acceptable mutants", or "abhumans" as they are called, are subject to the normal prejudice one would expect from a culture clash combined with biological differences. However, their mutations are not a sign of warp fuckery.

If a man with tentacles brought on by a warp storm mates with a woman with a second head brought on by a gellar field fuckup, who knows what the kid will look like? Their mutations are a sign of warp fuckery, and where mutants go, the warp follows.

Any noticeable abnormality will make someone subject to purging. If IG are traveling through the warp, when they arrive, even a suspicion of warp taint would be reason for a trip out the airlock.
