Mul Racial Feats and Utility Powers for 4e: Athas.org

The very first character I played in Dungeons & Dragons as a college-age player was a Mul thief in the desert wastes of Athas. I don't really recall now --all these long years later-- why I chose Mul. I chose thief because I had rolled a high DEX score, but I'd also rolled a high STR score so I could have been a fighter or gladiator. In fact, the way that I played her, she was more of a thug and a bully rather than a refined thief. Born a slave and not one to share her identity much, she changed her name many times over the campaign. At various times in her career, she was known as Zena, Xena (like The Warrior Princess?), Xenia, Shenta and Zig.

Muls as a race were a common part of the Athasian setting and important enough that I'm glad to see they are keeping them updated for the latest version of the D&D games. For a list of Mul racial feats and utility powers for fourth edition, go to Athas.org.
