Firearms of Grey Sky Edit

Introduction Edit

Firearms are what revolutionized the world of Grey sky. These new weapons changed warfare forever, knights in full plate were soon made redundant by superior firepower (although still today some mercenaries or adventurers still believe in the use of heavy armor). Unlike the crossbow, firearms are complicated to operate, they need to be reloaded using black powder and be maintained regularly. The problem of the mechanism jamming or faulty ammunition catching in the barrel is still problematic to modern gunmen.

Mechanic Edit

General Edit

Every firearms are ranged exotic weapons, and act as such. Firing with a firearm is noisy, and can be heard with a Listen Check DC -5 (near impossible to fail in other words).

Armor Penetration Edit

Firearms have the ability to quite easily punch through armor short of adamantine fullplate. However the bullets lose power after a certain distance, thus natural or artificial armor can help to stop or deflect bullets. Any attack made with a firearms within 30 ft. of the target is considered a ranged touch attack. Armors made of superior material (like adamantium) may block or deflect bullets even at point blank range, thus a character wearing them is not subject to armor penetration. While the normal range of armor penetration is 30 ft. or lower, it may vary between fireams however.

Jamming Edit

When you roll a natural 1 on attack roll with a ranged weapon, the weapon jams and require a full-round action to unjam. You may attempt a to unjam it as a move action, but doing so requires a DC15 Craft (Gunmaking) check. If the attempt fails, the gun is still jammed. When a gun jams there a 5% chance (roll another d20 on another roll of 1) that the weapon is irreperably damaged. Repairing the weapon requires 8 hours of work, and a successful craft (Gunmaking) check. Failure results in the gun being ruined and cannot undergo further repairing.

A Masterwork gun cannot break as a result of blocking, and unblocking them only requires a move action.
