Bio:

Arcane guns were one of the secrets handed out by the Inevitables during the Draconic Accord. Requiring the resources of man and mages, these elegant weapons were designed as symbols of status to those who kept the accord.

Each one is painstakingly handcrafted by a master artisan, with the secrets of repeating firearms known only to a select few. Made primarily of magically infused wood, mithral runes, and an adamantine barrel, they are expensive to make and maintain.

The magicite slugs are handcrafted to specific standards, then charged by a mage. There is no other way of automating the process, though there are no shortage of low-level adepts willing to charge a gunslingers ammo for a price. When the trigger is pulled, the magic of the slug is expended in a bolt of force. Typically they are red, but if requested, a mage can charge a slug with any specific colour.

Though the bolt travels incredibly fast, the magic rapidly dissipates, deteriorating at ranges far shorter than a bow or crossbow. The weapons have no recoil, though As well, they are not silent, creating a loud discharge as the energy is released. Larger charges require time to “bind” to the weapon in preparation for firing.

Magicite slugs are by default charged with force, but a 2nd level spell can charge them with a particular element, dealing fire, acid, cold, or lightning damage. In addition, rare and exotic ammo can be found throughout the lands.
