I like the material in this book but some of the guns are quite powerful. True that they are expensive, but compared to the DMG's idea of guns, they seem somewhat over powered.

I'm in the process of creating some new content and I'm doing editorial and other review to older works like this, so I'll definitely keep this in mind. The increased power is intentional though. The reload mechanic occurs much more slowly than the DMG firearms - they're more like high-tech crossbows in that way. My intent was to emulate a single-shot kill, so I designed my version of these weapons as something more on par with magic wands - high damage output, but limited utility in a single combat. That isn't to say my system is perfect, just that its not entirely crazy.
Thanks for the feedback though. Be on the lookout for update too, it should drop sometime within the next month or so.

Cool, I'll be watching for the update. Yeah I was re-reading this today as I am floating back and forth between Matt Mercers guns ideas and yours. I like what you have here. The reloading mechanics most certainly focus on high damage output but if the combat runs for longer than like 5 rounds or so, basically you will run outta guns to fire, unless your just loaded with pistols and revolvers.

The price ranges really do set the tone, because 10 shots of blackpowder cost 100 gp will really make a player think about weather or not an enemy is worth shooting. At first some of the features made me double take, such as shoot to kill. Then I read it. While powerful, the class feature " shoot to kill " only triggers if.....

you deal double their con score and then only if 1/4th their total hp is reamaining after you deal yours guns damage and then only if their Cr value is lower than your gunslinger class level. So its not broken but I could see this as a minion / lieutenant killer....See more

What excites me most about this class is the classic western feel, that happens to be in a fantasy setting. You can see different abilities pulled from the most famous westerns of all time.

As the creator of this product, I just want to let everyone know how excited I am to get this in front of an audience that's larger than my gaming table.

I created the original version of this class for 4th edition D&D because I was never actually satisfied with how guns were designed as part of a game's mechanics. I wanted something that did a good job of emulating firearms without becoming the go-to choice as a weapon. What I settled on was comparing them more with spells or limited-use magical items and my gaming buddies and I felt that hit the right spot.

I've got a half-dozen or so half-baked ideas to expand the presentation here and roll firearms into other classes with archetypes and feats, so if you like what you see here I would love to be able to take the financial support provided here and add content to this document so that you, too, can make these new weapons an entertaining part of your games!

I also just love talking about D&D in general, so if you...See more

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
