    Name: Altair
       Rank: Weak
       Type: Weapon: Flintlock Pistol
       Proof of purchase: N/A
       Description: Altair is a firearm weapon, a dueling flintlock pistol of traditional Encan design, the likes of which are quite popular among Encan sailors and pirates. It is made of well-worked, slip-resistant, waterproof wood etched with carved designs, and its metal work is of bronze. It fires using state-of-the-art alchemical rounds for ammunition. Each round is a vial containing a blue liquid whose quantity, when inserted into the gun, serves as an ammunition gauge. The liquid percolates through the bottom of the vial when the trigger is pulled, and sublimes into a dark blue crystalline slug which can be fired out of the weapon to a maximum range of 60 meters. The report of the gun is clearly audible, about as loud as a standard hand clap.
    Each round carries sufficient ammunition to fire ten shots per post, at which point the gun must be reloaded.
    Altair comes with a waterproof leather holster, meant to be strapped to the thigh, also bearing pockets to hold a good number of rounds.

    Hey Fraag, Markus here. So, there are some issues with this item that need to be addressed before it can be approved. I have those listed below:

    • Weak weapons do not have abilities. Remove the ability from your description
    • Please state that this is in fact a weapon, that way it is not confused with an item


    note, this was put into the wrong forum, I went ahead and moved it to WIP items. Please be sure to place any other items into the correct location.

The report of the gun is clearly audible, about as loud as a standard hand clap.
    Each vial contains enough ammunition to fire seven shots per post, at which point the gun must be reloaded (the consequence is that only seven shots can be fired per post).

    Apologies for the wrong placing of my post, and thanks for rectifying it for me.

    I need to clarify something though, please bear with me. I cannot see where I gave this item a particularly special ability, other than the fact that it fires ammunition (which I chose to verbosely explain as being alchemical and a lot of other gibberish, when in function, it's really the same as your average shrapnel spitter), it being a gun, and all that. I must admit I have rarely seen guns on this site, so I don't know whether it's tacky to have a gun at weak rank, seeing as I thought that shooting might be considered an ability, but just decided to go along with it and see what comes of it.
    TL;DR: Is a Weak-ranked gun allowed to shoot? Or is shooting considered to be an ability?

    Also, I have specifically mentioned that Altair is a weapon.

    A million thanks for your time.

    Hey Fraag, it is no issue I can understand items get confusing sometimes.

    So as a weak weapon the item would not get abilities, which anything that uses 'magic damage' is considered. As it is written, the item current has an addition multi target ability. Firearms function in the same way as melee weapons, and their damage still uses the equipment box.

    Meaning, as a weak gun the firearm would do the exact same type of damage as a melee weapon (Character Melee Damage + Weapon Modifier) x Strrength Multiplier. However, firearms and ranged weapons have a farther range than melee weapons.

    This is why most firearms are made as strong or higher, and the ability is used to give them a magical shot, however weak weapons do not get abilities.

    I think I understand you quite properly now (or at least I hope so). Thanks for the explanation.

    I have removed the 40HP damage, and reworded the gun to fire once per post. The seven-times-per-post is the multi-target ability, yes?

    Fraag, there is no need to specify that it only shoots once per post, as a weapon it can attack as many times as needed. What was making it count as an ability rather than a weapon damage was the 40 Magic damage, rather than the calculated weapon damage.

    Currently, this weapon is not well calibrated, and thus wastes its ammunition rounds, the consequence being that it fires a single shot per post, at which point the gun must be reloaded.

    Alrighty, then. I've re-modified stuff to allow for multiple shots per post. Hope this is all okay now.

    Sorry about the delay in responding. Long weekend and an absence of laptops to steal during that time. And I'm really grateful for your patience.
