Gun Properties[edit]

These are the properties for guns that are not listed in the SRD.

Misfire[edit]

Most firearms in fantasy settings aren’t perfected, however if your campaign is more modern, you may wish to forgo this rule. In parentheses next to this property tag for the gun is a misfire score, when an attack roll is made, if the roll is equal to or less than the misfire score, the weapon will misfire, missing the shot, and doing one of the traits written after the misfire score, those being the following:

Jam

The gun jams and can no longer be fired until fixed, it can fixed during downtime, or with a full action during battle. Doing so requires a successful tinker’s tools check with a DC equal to 8+the misfire score of the gun. This check is made with advantage if it is done during downtime.

Explode

An explosion occurs inside the gun, causing the wielder to take an amount of fire damage equal to the misfire score of the weapon, and causing all further attack rolls with that weapon to be made with disadvantage until fixed, it can fixed during downtime, or with a full action during battle. Doing so requires a successful tinker’s tools check with a DC equal to 8+the misfire score of the gun. This check is made with advantage if it is done during downtime.

Break

The gun is broken, and can’t be used in any way except as a improvised weapon until fixed, it can fixed during downtime, or with a full action during battle. Doing so requires a successful tinker’s tools check with a DC equal to 8+the misfire score of the gun. This check is made with advantage if it is done during downtime.

Bend

The barrel bends, attack and damage rolls made with the gun are made with disadvantage until fixed, it can fixed during downtime, or with a full action during battle. Doing so requires a successful tinker’s tools check with a DC equal to 8+the misfire score of the gun. This check is made with advantage if it is done during downtime.

Extra Note[edit]

Do please note that when you get a 1 on your attack roll with a weapon that has a a misfire score equal to or greater than 5, it won’t just misfire, it will be completely destroyed, and cannot be fixed, rendering it useless forever.

Cocking[edit]

This is identical to the loading weapon property, however, instead of loading the gun, it’s cocking the gun. Because of the time required to cock this gun, you can fire only one piece of ammunition from it when you use an action, bonus action, or reaction to fire it, regardless of the number of attacks you can normally make.

Automatic[edit]

This gun uses an advanced clockwork system to automatically load a bullet into the gun through the magazine, as a result, you can fire any amount of ammunition on your attack, instead of just one. There is a number in parentheses after this property tag, this is the gunfire quota, you must fire that amount of bullets to deal normal damage, if you shoot less bullets, the damage roll is made with disadvantage, if you exceed the gunfire quota, the damage roll is made with advantage. For every bullet fired after the gunfire quota’s amount, you get a +1 bonus the attack roll, and every bucket not fired to meat the gunfire quota’s amount gives the attack a -1 on the attack roll. Projectiles fired from an automatic weapon must be of the powdered variant, and the trigger must be a matchlock trigger, otherwise, it can’t be used automatically. If you are a DM and you don’t like the idea of automatic firearms in a campaign like this, you can choose to either remove weapons with this property, or simply change them so that they have multiple barrels, similar to a ribaldequin, and maybe they take longer to reload or they are heavier and require a strength requirement to wield or maybe an entire other rule not listed here.

Recoil[edit]

Due to the explosion used to propel the bullet, it pushes the gun back into the user, this is called recoil. For every projectile shot with the gun, it gains a recoil point, if the amount of recoil points the gun has is equal to or greater than it’s recoil score, listed in parentheses next to the property tag for the gun, the gun is unsteady, meaning attack rolls made with the gun are at disadvantage, and the misfire score doubles. You can steady the gun as a reaction to the gun being unsteady if you wish, setting the recoil points to 0.

Explosive[edit]

Guns that are explosive deal their damage to everything within an amount of feet of the target equal to the explosive score of the weapon, listed in parentheses next to this property tag, however, the damage roll is made with disadvantage, unless the affected object or creature is the target, to where it is made with advantage.

Bayoneted[edit]

This gun has a sharp tip at the end, now, melee attacks with this gun deal an amount of piercing damage equal to the damage roll listed in parentheses next to this property tag.

Hooked[edit]

This gun is more powerful or heavy than most other guns, and as such must be mounted onto the ground with a tripod, bipod, monopod, or other similar hook that comes attached with the gun when found. It can also be mounted onto a low wall. Attack rolls are made with disadvantage if the gun is not hooked and the hooked score listed in parentheses next to this property tag is greater than the strength score of the gun. Hooking a gun is done as a bonus action. Unhooking the gun can be done as a free action. While the gun is hooked, the wielder’s speed is 0.

Capacity[edit]

All guns can store ammunition, some more than others, this property lists that. In parentheses next to this property tag is the capacity score, this is how many rounds of ammunition can be loaded in the clip, magazine, or other container. When you shoot a gun, it expends an amount of ammo from the container. If there are 0 rounds of ammunition in the container, it cannot be fired until reloaded. It can be reloaded as one of the following actions, listed after the capacity score of the gun, separated by a comma. It will be abbreviated on the property tag. Some of them can be reloaded as an attack too, they will have the abbreviation ATK listed after the action to reload, seperated by a slash.

  • Action ACT
  • Full Action FL
  • Bonus Acton/Reaction(reaction to the gun being unloaded) BAR
  • Free Action FE

Extra Note[edit]

Whenever a free action is mentioned in this, by free action, I mean object interaction, it’s just easier to say free action. Likewise, you can only use object interaction once in your turn, as the rules of object interaction dictate.

Spread[edit]

Some guns shoot a lot of bullets in a single attack that aren’t entirely accurate, giving it spread. Attack and damage rolls are made with disadvantage. Instead of selecting one target when making an attack, it affects all targets in a cone, if the targets are within the normal range of the gun, it functions as previously stated(attack and damage roles made with disadvantage and effecting all targets in a cone), if the targets are beyond the normal range of the gun, the targets make a dexterity save with a DC of 8+the wielder’s wisdom score, due to aiming, perception, and other similar reasons. If the wielder is proficient in the perception skill, they can add their proficiency modifier to the save DC of the previously described save. If the targets fail the save, they take half damage, and no damage on a success. Targets beyond the long range of the gun automatically succeed the save.

Inaccurate[edit]

This gun is single fire yet isn’t the most accurate, and likely strikes from the top with an arc trajectory. Whenever you fail an attack roll with a gun with this property, it goes in a different direction, and hits somewhere in the distance. Roll a d8 to determine the direction with the following table when said attack roll misses, the attack will go in that direction an amount of feet equal to the roll written after this property tag in parentheses on the gun with this property. If there is an applicable target where the bullet hits, they take the damage instead of the original target. If the gun is explosive, the explosion will be centered on that point.

Direction North Northwest West Southwest South Southeast East Northeast
Roll 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Unwieldy[edit]

Some guns are especially heavy or long or just plain big, and as a result, people have difficulty holding them. When a gun has the unwieldy property, it requires a strength (sleight of hand) check with a DC equal to the score listed in parentheses next to the unwieldy property tag to pick up/unholster, and at the end of every round that you use and are wielding the gun, meaning it is unholstered and you make an attack with it, you must make a strength save with a DC equal to the score listed in parentheses next to the unwieldy property tag. If you fail the strength save, the guns becomes unsteady, and if the save fails with a 1 on the roll, it is dropped.

Extra Note[edit]

Do please note that it is acknowledged that the skill uses the wrong ability, it simply fits better as that ability with that skill.

Firearms[edit]

These are official models, and are manufactured in bulk, organized in martial and simple weapons.

Extra Note[edit]

The stat blocks contain rarities and prices, this is not a mistake, this is simply to describe how rare they would be for enemies and finding them in shops, or just looting them, but also posing a price when it can be bought.

Extra Note[edit]

While Range, Misfire, Recoil, and Capacity all have their own place on the table, they all still count as properties as they should, but since all firearms have them(except the ones that have gun mods to remove them or are certain special guns like the Coilgunne which doesn’t have misfire because there is no chance for it to misfire) they get their own column on the table just so that it’s easier to read.

Broadbarrel Lore[edit]

Some lore about people who deal with guns in the world of Broadbarrel.

Trixie Adams[edit]

Tricks Adams is a half gnome tinker who travels for work, going from place to place, modifying powdergunnes for her clients. She is credited for creating a clockwork system, Trixie Automatics, that made automatic weapons mainstream, as before, they were highly expensive and dangerous, due to automatics being a new technology. Most everything that utilizes automatics has ties to her in some way, including the mini caliber bullet, which she invented. The automatic system uses a mainspring that is wound up to move the projectiles into place so that they can be fired, which is part of the reload.

Ryan Colt[edit]

Ryan Colt owns a company called General Munitions, which sells pretty much, “every gun under the scorching, scalding, burning, sun,” as their motto would say. He hasn’t invented much, but he owns the most popular munitions and ammunition company in all of Broadbarrel.

Kowalski Birmingham[edit]

Kowalski Birmingham like explosions and a whole lot of bullets. He invented all explosive guns and the explosive round, selling them at a very steep price, which he constantly has to lower because a single explosive round is not worth, “600 darned gold peices!” He has a fairly small company that doesn’t sell to consumers, rather selling to retailers such as General Munitions. He also made the more modern version of shot rolls, as well as scattergunnes, shotgunnes, but he isn’t known for those.

Hunter Shalom[edit]

Hunter Shalom isn’t very smart, but his memory is high, which has lead him to being a manufacturer, selling what he builds to retailers, and buying blueprints from inventors. He doesn’t have a company though.

Ammunition Types[edit]

All guns use ammunition, or at least, the official models, here are the types.

Bullet(Mini Cal.)[edit]

Description

The mini caliber bullet is a ball half a centimeter in diameter.

Lore

It was made by Trixie Adams to suit automatic weapons that couldn’t handle higher caliber rounds, otherwise, they would easily jam.

Uses

It is used in automatic weapons, as well as smaller weapons such as the palm pistol.

Stats

Attacks made with this bullet deal piercing damage. Price of 1 copper piece per bullet.

Bullet(Low Cal.)[edit]

Description

The low caliber bullet is a ball one and half centimeters in diameter.

Lore

It was made by early firearm manufacturers, nobody in particular.

Uses

Used with smaller, less powerful guns.

Stats

Attacks that use this bullet deal piercing damage. The price for 1 bullet is 5 copper pieces.

Bullet(Med. Cal.)[edit]

Description

The medium caliber bullet is a ball has a diameter of 1 inch.

Lore

It was the first bullet made, besides the cannonball and other similar projectiles. It was used in every early firearm, but some newer models uses different ammunition.

Uses

It is used in regular sized weapons that shoot regularly powerful shots.

Stats

Attacks with this bullet deal piercing damage. The price for 1 bullet is 1 silver piece.

Bullet(High Cal.)[edit]

Description

The high caliber bullet is a ball with a 1 and a half inch diameter.

Lore

It is one of the newer rounds of ammunition, designed by General Munitions, which hired Hunter Shalom to manufacture it.

Uses

It is used in more powerful, bigger guns.

Stats

Attacks with this type of ammo deal piercing damage. The price for 1 bullet is 5 silver pieces.

Roll of Shot[edit]

Description

Shot is a collection of tiny steel balls rolled in paper to function as a case. It’s roughly 1 inch in diameter and 1 inch long, in the form of a cylinder. Each ball is spherical and roughly 1 millimeter in diameter.

Lore

It was made by Kowalski Birmingham to enhance the effectiveness of certain firearms.

Uses

It is used in blunderbusses, scattergunnes, and shotgunnes.

Stats

Attacks with this type of ammunition deal piercing damage. The price for 1 roll of shot is 1 gp.

Explosive Round[edit]

Description

The explosive round is a foot long, three inches wide, and cylindrical, though the forward facing end is rounded for aerodynamics. It has a compartment filled with nitroglycerin(called halamda in the Forgetten Realms, and hellfire in Broadbarrel, it is not pure nitro though, it is more of a nitro foam, as there are many bubbles inside so that there is oxygen for combustion) and a flint shard which creates a spark when the impact of a hit strikes the flint to the steel. The explosive round is not welded together, instead, it is glued together with a brittle glue, which breaks upon the impact of a hit.

Lore

It was made by Kowalski Birmingham to make shots explosive.

Uses

It is used in guns specially designed to hold explosive rounds, so that the projectiles explode on contact.

Stats

Attacks with this deal fire damage and knock the target prone, provided they fail a dexterity save with a DC equal to the damage they took, which is made after they take damage. If the DC is greater than 30, they automatically fail. They also deal 1d3 bludgeoning damage to the target, but only the target, regardless if the the gun used to fire this projectile has the explosive property, though that damage roll is made with disadvantage. The price for 1 explosive round is 5 gold pieces.

Cannonball[edit]

Description

The cannonball is a solid steel sphere that is one decimeter wide.

Lore

It was the first projectile made to be fired with gunpowder, originally used in cannons, now used in certain firearms.

Uses

It is used in handgunnes and gonnes.

Stats

Attacks with this type of ammunition deal bludgeoning damage. The price of 1 cannonball is 3 gold pieces.

Ammunition Variants[edit]

Ammunition can be made differently, here are some of the variants:

Leaden

The projectile is made of lead, and the target is poisoned for the rest of the round and at the end of the battle, if still alive, gets lead poisoning(called shotcurse in Broadbarrel), see the links section.

Waxed

This projectile is made of wax, the damage type switches to nonlethal bludgeoning, and the damage doll is made with disadvantage. Additionally, if the gun using this variant of projectile has the explosive property, it does not come into play for the attack where a waxed projectile is used. If the waxed projectile is an explosive round, it will not knock the target prone.

Aerodynamic

This projectile gets a pointed end, deals an additional 1 piercing damage, and adds a +1 bonus to the attack roll.

Flint

The projectile is laced with flint dust, and the attack that uses this type of ammo deal a bonus 1d3 fire damage, though that roll is made with disadvantage.

Powdered

The projectile comes with explosive powder inside of it, lowering the reload time from one to the other in the way shown below, and allowing you to reload as an attack, if it doesn’t already.

  • FL -> ACT/ATK
  • ACT -> BAR/ATK
  • BAR -> FE/ATK
  • FE -> The reload is part of the attack

Automatic weapons are not effected by this.

Silvered

The projectile counts as silvered, meaning targets with resistance or immunity to non magical attacks are vulnerable to attacks made with this bullet.


You may add multiple variations to the same projectile. For every variation you add multiplies the cost of the bullet by two, so, for example, a powdered roll of shot would cost 2 gp, a leaden powdered roll of shot would cost 4 gp, an aerodynamic leaden powdered roll of shot would cost 8 gp, and so on so forth.

Unique Powdergunnes[edit]

These are special guns found only in the Broadbarrel campaign setting, you could use them in other settings, but the lore will be off by a long shot, heh, long shot, get it? ‘Cause guns....

HAHA BIG BOOMINATER[edit]

Lore Overview

Yes, it is always written in all capital letters, and yes, it always has the word haha written before it. It’s basically a rotary autocannon that Kowalski Birmingham made for the sole purpose of it being awesome.

Description

It has three long steel barrels connected at the base and the tip by metal sheets with holes in them, the holes being where the barrels fit in. It uses a container of water located in the base of the gun which evaporates under the heat of Broadbarrel, turning a “turbine” with the steam which rotates the barrels and the mechanism that feeds ammunition in. The base of the gun contains the previously described water container, as well as a handle and a lever. When the level is pushed down, the match inside of it is forced into the barrel, which ignites the propellant that shoots explosive rounds out of the barrel.

Stats[edit]

Obtained: Wielded by Kowalski Birmingham himself. Cannot be bought.

Ammo Type: Explosive Rounds

Properties: Ammunition(range 40/120), Capacity(20,FL), Misfire(10,Explode), Recoil(6), Automatic(5), Spread, Two-Handed, Heavy, Unwieldy(22), Explosive(10), Hooked(22), Special

Damage: 50d3

Rarity: Artifact

Weight: 100 lbs

HAHA BIG BOOMINATER Specialty

By the end of a long rest, all of the water in the water container of HAHA BIG BOOMINATER will have evaporated, and new water must be placed in the container, which takes 1 minute, and expends a gallon of water. If there is water to expend, but not a gallon, then it will evaporate by the end of a short rest instead. If there is no water to expend at all, it cannot be refilled. Additionally, it is so heavy that it needs two people to hold it, tracked vehicles such as carts and sleds will also suffice.

Trixie’s Automaton[edit]

Lore Overview

An automatic gun that is really, really automatic, it fires itself! It was made by Trixie Adams to protect her while she slept.

Description

Trixie’s Automaton uses a mainspring to turn all the gears so that it can work. It utilizes galena(lead sulphide) that detects a source of heat, and when it does, it creates an electrical spark which lights the match in the matchlock mechanism, turning it on and keeping it on until it’s no longer hot; when it dies. The spark that the galena makes helps locate the source of heat via relative positioning, from there, it excites magnetite inside of it which turns iron gears, unlike the other gears, typically made of non-ferrous material such as lead, as those gears turn, it zones Trixie’s Automaton in on it’s target. Additionally, it has a few magic runes inscribed inside of it that regenerate lost ammunition, allowing for infinite fire. It has some small wheels that allows it to be pushed around. Other than that, it’s not much different than your average chaingunne.

Overheating: Whenever Trixie’s Automaton makes an attack, it gains a heat point. When it reaches 11 heat points, it takes 1 point of fire damage per heat point after 10 at the end of it’s turn. It loses 1d2 heat points at the end of every round.

Heat seeking: Trixie’s Automaton can only make attacks against creatures objects that are hot. It automatically attacks the closest hot thing that it sees, unless it is turned off, which can be done as a bonus action if the person turning it off knows how to and is within 5 feet of it. While it is turned off, it cannot make attacks. It can be turned back on the same way it is turned off.

Chaingunne[edit]

Medium Object

Armor Class: 19

Hit Points: 60

Damage Immunities: Poison, Psychic

Cost: 1,800

A heavy, automatic, rotary barreled gun that is belt fed. Because it is automatic, and it would take a very long time to wind up, so instead it uses a hand crank to turn the barrel and fed the belt into said barrel. Typically made of steel and mounted on the ground or a vehicle of some sort, instead of carried by wheel. However, to prevent overheating, it has a barrel made out of wolfram.

It takes an action to attack, a bonus action to aim, and a full action to reload. It can store a maximum of 100 bullets(mini cal.) before it needs to be reloaded. If there are no bullets(mini cal.) stored, then an attack cannot be aimed. Every bullet(mini cal.) shot gives it a heat point. At the end of every round, it loses 1d10 heat points, if the total heat point value of it is greater than 500, it glows maroon and that die switches to 1d12, if the total heat point value of it is greater than 900, it glows red and that die switches to 1d20. If the total heat point value of it exceeds 1000, then it glows scarlet, damage/attack rolls made are made with disadvantage, and deals 1d4 fire damage to the user at the end of every round, this increases by 1d4 every 100 heat points, at a heat point value of 2000, it glows orange and warps, and can no longer shoot until repaired with a successful DC 20 tinker tool’s check, which can only be made when it has 25 or less heat points.

Attacks[edit]

Full on Assault The chaingunne expends all ammunition stored inside of it. Each creature in an 80 ft. cone must make a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw, taking 3(1d4) piercing damage per bullet shot on a failed save(by per bullet shot, if 100 bullets are shot, that’s 100d4 damage, but that damage is spread out among the creatures, so, in total, 100d4 damage will be dealt, but not to each creature), and half as much on a success. Creatures within 20 ft. of the chaingunne have disadvantage on this save. Creatures beyond 45 ft. of the chaingunne take half damage on a fail and no damage on a success, instead.

Fire The chaingunne expends 20 rounds of ammunition if it has it, otherwise, the damage roll is made with disadvantage. Each creature in an 80 ft. line 5 ft. wide must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw, taking 50(20d4) piercing damage on a failed save, and half as much on a success. Creatures within 30 ft. of the chaingunne have disadvantage on this save. Creatures beyond 60 ft. of the chaingunne take half damage on a fail and no damage on a success, instead.

Single Shot Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 60/180 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d8) piercing damage. The attack and damage roll are made with advantage, and the attack is a critical hit on a 19-20 instead of a 20. The chaingunne expends 1 round of ammunition.

Railgunne[edit]

Gargantuan Object

Armor Class: 24

Hit Points: 800

Cost: 121,600 gp

A huge firearm that propels massive armor piercing bolts with refined magnetite, manned by dozens of people, but with one pilot.

It can hold a maximum of 6 armor piercing bolts at a time, and each armor pricing bolt requires 50 gp of materials, which are expended when the bolt is created, a component pouch, and a successful DC 20 smith’s tools check to make, and takes 2 hours to make. Natural and non-natural armor is ignored when making an attack against a target. When it takes lightning damage, it is forced to make a Load and Fire or Pulse attack as a reaction. Attacks that siege engines or beasts make against it are considered magical for the sake of overcoming resistances.


It takes a full action to take one of the following actions:

Movement[edit]

Turn Left The railgunne turns left on it’s mounting station up to 90°, with the exact amount chosen by the pilot.

Turn Right The railgunne turns right on it’s mounting station up to 90°, with the exact amount chosen by the pilot.

Tread Forward The railgunne travels forward along it’s treads up to 20 ft., with the exact amount chosen by the pilot.

Tread Backward The railgunne travels forward along it’s treads up to 20 ft., with the exact amount chosen by the pilot.

Attacks[edit]

Load & Fire Ranged Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, range 200/600 ft., one target. Hit: 90 (20d8) piercing damage. The target is grappled as the bolt impales them on a hit(escape DC 20), while it is grappled, it is restrained and takes 1d4 bludgeoning damage at the end of each round(except the round it was hit by the bolt) as the weight of the bolt falls on them and pushes outward from the point of penetration. One armor piercing bolt is expended. All terrain within 10 ft. of the target is considered difficult terrain and all creatures on said terrain must make a DC 18 Dexterity save or be knocked prone as the ground cracks and is uplifted, and a cloud of dust and debris rises, heavily obscuring all area within 10 ft. of the target. This attack can only be made if the target is being aimed at, see the aim attack below.

Aim The railgunne aims the barrel up or down with a series of pulleys, if the railgunne is pointing in the direction of the target, the target is considered being aimed at, and will continue to be considered aimed at until it moves.

Pulse The railgunne creates a pulse of (magnetic) force. All creatures within 200 feet of the railgunne wearing ferrous armor are lifted into the air and take 1d6 bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet away from they are, as if they were falling, and they end up prone within 5 feet of the railgunne. All creatures within 200 feet of the railgunne holding/wielding a ferrous object are disarmed, and their object is sent anywhere within 5 feet of the railgunne. All creatures within 200 feet of the railgunne take 1d20 lightning damage and must make a Constitution save with a DC equal to the lightning damage they just took or are stunned for 1d4 rounds.

Raygunne[edit]

Large Object

Armor Class: 16

Hit Points: 50

Damage Immunities: Poison, Psychic

Cost: 1,500 gp

The raygunne is likely the most complex weapon in this Broadbarrel, and DMs may choose to forgo it because it’s so high tech, even if it is used, it would only be experimental, and not found mainstream in the world. It works by magnifying radiation from a hunk of uranium in the raygunne with a high powered telescope.

It can take one actions on its turn. It shines bright light in a 10 ft. radius, and dim light for another 10 ft..

Actions[edit]

Track Target The raygunne zones in on a target, and the target is considered aimed at.

Ray Attack The raygunne shoots a ray out. Pick a target, the target‘s ray point level increases by 1, see the ray table below. The target loses all ray point levels when it is no longer being aimed at, and this attack can only be made when the target is being aimed at.

Magnify The raygunne’s telescope magnifies by having another lens be inserted into itself. Whenever a target is attack by the raygunne’s ray attack, they suffer two ray point levels instead of one. This action can only be taken once, and the effect of this lasts only for 5 rounds, after that, the lens melts, and must be replaced with 3 GP of glass and other materials and a successful DC 12 glassblower’s tools check.

Ray Table[edit]

When a creature suffers a ray point level, they get an effect determined by this table, and suffer the effects of all ray point levels below. If the effect is damage, they take the damage at the end of the round. The random disease is chosen by the DM. Both the random disease and cancer are permanent until cured, the don’t go away when they lose their ray point levels.

Ray Point Level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Effect Blinded Poisoned 1d6 Radiant Damage 1d6 Poison Damage 1d10 Fire Damage 1 Level of Exhaustion A Random Disease Cancer

Extra Note[edit]

Do please note that cancer is a disease found in the links section.

Slice & Dice The shredder spins quickly, dealing 3d6 slashing damage to all creatures within 5 ft. of the shredder.

Gun Mods[edit]

Guns are highly modifiable, these are some modifications that can be added. Each gun mod requires an amount of gold pieces(or its equivalent) in the form of materials and a successful tinker’s tools check equal to the score written next to the mod’s name in parentheses, you may only have one gun mod per category of gun mods. If you fail the check, the money is expended, but gun mod is not created.

Receivers[edit]

Receivers are what function the gun, and act like a hub, connecting the bullets, trigger, barrel, and all that stuff.

Automatic Receiver(16)

This receiver allows for automatic fire, which means the following: The gun gains the automatic property, and, if the modder so chooses, the gun gains the spread property, but it costs an extra 5 gold pieces to make and puts a -1 penalty on the tinker’s tools check made to make this mod. If the gun with this mod has the cocking or loading property, it loses it. The gunfire quota for the automatic gun is equal to half of it’s capacity, rounding up.

Wheellock(14)

The gun uses a wheel lock system where the trigger’s lock scrapes against steel to create a spark that lights the explosive powder, this means the following: The gun is not affected by the properties of matchlock guns in the guns variant rule, see the links section.

Flintlock(17)

The gun works in the same way as a wheellock gun, but the lock is made of flint to get a better spark, this means the following: The gun is not affected by the properties of matchlock guns in the guns variant rule, see the links section. Additionally, if the gun with this mod misfires, the projectile will still hit the target.

Stocks[edit]

Stocks help with recoil and stability, and rest upon or push into your shoulder.

Stock(14)

This stock helps you stabilize and steady your gun by a small margin, this means the following: Increases the recoil score of the gun by 2, and decreases the strength requirement to use this weapon with the hooked property without it being hooked by 1.
