Dwarven sniper

This is the age of industry, and firearms are the norm. Most such weapons are lever-action, cartridge-loading rifles, though more expensive, experimental, and/or magical guns are capable of such things as semi-automatic fire and removable magazines. Full-automatic weapons are not yet available, though they are a potential invention that PCs or others might come up with during the campaign. Many different propellants are in use by different manufacturers, but the most common is a cordite-like material.

In terms of game mechanics, all basic rifles and pistols are simple weapons. Firearms of this era typically have identical stats to equivalent-size crossbows, except that their critical damage multiplier is x4, they typically have a multi-round ammunition capacity, and before making an attack roll, the wielder may choose to spend an action point in order to cause the attack (if successful) to be an automatic critical hit. This ability doesn’t work against targets with cover or concealment, and only PCs and major NPCs have action points to spend in the first place.

Bows still exist, but they are exotic weapons; crossbows remain as they are, and still see use as stealth weapons or delivery platforms for explosives and the like.
