Archaic Firearms: Many very early period, typically epoch TL:1-3, guns remain available in interstellar societies and, travellers granted free choice might still want to purchase and train with them. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Firearms are available at lower tech levels in less developed forms. Adventurers on primitive worlds may encounter them, and may conceivably be required to use them. [2]

  1. Flintlock Musket [3]
  2. Hand Cannon [4]
  3. Muzzle-loading Pistol [5]
  4. Percussion Revolver [6]
  5. Percussion Rifle [7]
  6. Smoothbore Flintlock Musket

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

All these weapons require that the owner also carry gunpowder and properly sized lead balls; percussion weapons also require a supply of percussion caps. [8]
