Monster species species with monster organs suffers atrophy, is reducing size mandatory or can you remove plus organs instead of reducing size?
Reading the rules (which I quote below) I think it is mandatory because of the several "the species size is reduced instead". But in the glossary in the section Atrophy Dwarfism it says that the species "can reduce" its size (quoted in bold below). This "can" makes me think that maybe the player has a choice so he/she can remove plus organs instead of reducing the size to get rid of the excess.
D7e: Monsters. If a monster token suffers an Atrophy during mutagens, the species size is reduced instead. If it suffers an Atrophy at the minimum size (size 1), remove the monster token instead.From the glossary:
D8b: Monsters. If a monster token Atrophies during radiation, the species size is reduced instead, see “Atrophy”. If it suffers an Atrophy at the minimum size, remove the monster token instead. See J4.
J4: If a monster token Atrophies, e.g. during radiation or mutagens, the species size is reduced instead, see “Atrophy”.
Atrophy Dwarfism. If an Atrophy is taken from a monster (J4), instantly reduce the size of the Species to get rid of the desired number of cubes. This resize is instant and free. For instance, if a mutagen event with a dark heart 4 occurs, a size 6 megafauna with one monster token and one blue cube can reduce instantly to size 3 to get rid of its excess cubes.Thanks for the answers!
Monster (E2d) is a token that represents a special Plus Organ considered to be multiple cubes, as many cubes as the Size Dice of the Species. If a Monster Atrophies, e.g. during radiation or mutagens, the species size is reduced instead, see “Atrophy”. A monster token cannot be removed unless it suffers Atrophy while the Species is at size 1. The monsters are Godzilla, Kong, Kraken, Dragon, and Yeti, with apologies to the monsters too many to mention.
