You do have 30 general skill points
You also an additional five points that can only be 'used' under the following rule:
Code: Select all
Take the Gunslinger Class
Gunslingers gets one additional 'skill point' beyond the 4+Int which they must apply to one of the following:
Musketeer - 1 points profession military
Landsman - 1 points profession sailor
Armsman - 1 points Knowledge Nobility
Guildman - 1 points Knowledge Guilds
which reflects the origin of your knowledge...for example if you learned weapons from someone either in or formerly conncected to the military you'd be a Muskateer and get 1 points in being a professional solider so you can identify rank insignia...known the difference between a corporal and a Colonel...et
Based on your background I suggest
3 points profession military
2 points Knowledge Nobility
But I leave it to you to decide how to spread them out...
Pepperboxes apparently fail the 17th century rule as they tended not to be known before 1790's but multi-barrels weapons do exist...
(That and the pepperbox does the same damage as a pistol but the bullet is smaller so even at the same speed the damage would be much less per round...dah...)
So rather than the pepperbox I will allow the following do exist:
A three shot capacity pepperbox or
Mathias Breech Pistol
The Mathias Breech Pistol
-Yeah but I saw this and thought it was a lot damn cooler...
The most advanced weapon yet actually created it is said that one must order one to be made when a child is born for him to receive it when he become a man from the most singular and expensive gunsmith in the known world. It is unique in that the weapon has specially made 'block cartridges' that contain both a pocket for each bullet as well as a flash pan.
Range 40 ft
Capacity - The player can load in as many block cartridges as a free action that remain loaded player can take full BAB for each shot fired (does not remove rapid shot -2 penalty)
Reloading - each block cartridge must be reloaded starting as a standard action and can be reduced
Misfilre 1 dmg 10 ft
Weight 8 lbs -gun each block cartridge 1 lbs
Cost 5,000g for weapon and one block cartridge
200g for each additional block cartridge -(note not consumable but must reloaded with shot and powder before reuse)
Oh and I guess he could be the 'leader' of one of the specialized companies of the First Imperial Rifles realizing that he'd never have gotten to the rank of Colonel...
