Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Simple Weapons, Light Armor, All shields accept tower shields.
Class Features Craft Reserve: Same as Artificer's Craft Reserve only it's used for firearms and is separated from other Craft Reserve's.
Craft Firearms: You can make Renaissance type weapons such as Pistols, Muskets, Bombs, and Smoke Bombs. You can also make Gunpowder and Ball Bearings. You use your Craft Skill Firearms to make these items. You follow the same rules as Magic Arms & Armor when making your firearms. Making a firearm is not a magic weapon it is an ability that you as a Gunpowder Maker are Proficient to make.
Powder Formula: After working on gunpowder for so long you found away to alter the black powder to have more of a kick. Damage on future gunpowder that you make will be given an extra +1d6 every even level of gunpowder maker. Your gunpowder goes by the price of a magic arms & armor weapon for each 1d6 that counts as a +1 enchantment. As you level up the gunpowder you made before doesn't level with you must make new gunpowder to increase the power.
Ball Bearing Alteration: You can place different types of ball bearings to use at your targets. You can also add these effects to bombs. Some of the effects will take away the extra damage that this class adds to the gunpowder because of the materials used to make the different ball bearings. Poison: Replace Powder Formula damage. Your choose of Str, Dex, or Con damage 1d6 on both primary and secondary per 6 levels of your gunpowder make class. DC Fortitude Save (10+1/2 Gunpowder Maker Level+Int Modifier). Sonic: Fortitude save on all those hit by the bomb blast or shot or be defend for 1d6 rounds. DC (10+1/2 Gunpowder Maker Level+Int Modifier). Acid: Add +1d6 Acid Damage per 4 levels of Gunpowder Maker. Doesn't break objects instead acid eats them. Fire: Add +1d6 Fire Damage per 4 levels of Gunpowder Maker. Doesn't break objects instead burns them. Flash: Fortitude save or be blinded for 1d6 rounds (10+1/2 Gunpowder Maker levels+Int Modifier). Stink Bomb: Fortitude Save or be nauseated for 1d6 rounds (10+1/2 your Gunpowder Maker levels+Int Modifier). Stink Bombs DC save will go up by using all of your Gunpowder Maker Levels if target has scent ability and will add an extra 1d6 rounds of being nauseated. Shrapnel: Only bombs get this effect by adding peaces of metal, glass, or other fragments to inflict damage or maim enemies. Make 2 reflex saves to dodge shrapnel and bombs normal effects. DC (10+1/2 Gunpowder Maker Levels+Int Modifier). If you failed the save of Shrapnel then you take 1d6 damage per 4 levels of Gunpowder Maker every round until the shrapnel is taken out of your body with a heal check that will take an hour of surgery to remove it and sow you back up(you will not take any more damage from shrapnel while in surgery). If the one who does the heal check fails then damage will continue. Shrapnel only effects living creatures and is not effected by Damage Reduction.
Bonus Feat: Bonus Feat added on Levels 4, 7, 10, 13, 17.
Scrap the Old: Scrap the Old functions just like an Artificers Retain Essence ability except it only works on Firearms such as Pistols, Muskets, and Bombs. You take the Firearm or Bomb and disassemble the object to it's raw materials and get the XP and raw materials back. The XP goes to your Craft Reserve for Gunpowder Maker.
Add Barrel: You place a new Barrel on your firearm when you craft the weapon. You can add up to 3 barrels to your firearm and each barrel you add will increase the time, XP, and gold you spend to make the firearm by 25% for each new barrel.
Add Scope: You add a scope to you firearms that takes a few minutes during crafting your weapon. A scope gives you a +1 on attack rolls every 4 levels of Gunpowder Maker.
Rain Resistance: You finally did it, you now made it possible to fire a shot in the rain without getting your powder wet. Any firearms you make from here and later will no longer have trouble firing in the rain, however if the firearm goes underwater it still won't work underwater.
Slug: You can make gunpowder so powerful that any gunpowder you make has a chance you knock your enemies prone within 30FT or closer. Str or Dex check or be knocked prone DC (10+1/2Gunpowder Maker Level+Int Modifier).
Dragon Powder: Because of how hot your gunpowder makes the ball bearing when fired it makes the targets body burn by after effects. Any gunpowder you make after getting this ability allows you to add a lingering effect. For each +1d6 damage that this class adds damages your target for 1d4 rounds.
Rending Slug: Your Slug improves by tearing flesh or breaks armor and the bodies frame. Same as Slug with added effect. Target must make a Fortitude Save (DC 10+1/2Gunpowder Maker Levels +Int Modifier)if failed the DM will roll to see what body part you hit (Torso does not count)and that body part will take X2 the damage. If you made Critical then add the multipliers together (Critical Multiplier only stacks with this effect if target can be critical hit).
Shot Off: Same as Slug and Rending Slug with added effects. If target failed the Fortitude save from Rending Slug the target will also lose the body part that the firearm shot.
