Rules Regarding Firearm Use


Firearms are rare and expensive.  Most mounts have not been exposed to firearms and so firing firearms can frighten gun-shy mounts.

All firearms are mussel loaders and take 2 rounds to reload.  With the rapid reload feat, that time is reduced to 1 round.

Firearms do not work well in the rain and will fail to fire 50% of the time.  This penalty can be ignored if the user passes a DC 15 firearm skill check.

Firearms during this time do not have rifling which makes them less accurate and reduces the range.


Firearm maintenance must be preformed once a week to keep the firearm in proper firing order.  If regular maintenance is not preformed, for every week that the firearm is used but not maintained, there is an additional 10% chance that the firearm will fail to fire during combat.  Firearm maintenance takes 30 minutes to preform.
