It’s been a busy month, and posting kind of got away from me. I’ve been working on this for a while, and I’m pretty proud of it. I love the idea of the prestige class in 5e, and even though I know some people aren’t so keen on it, I think it opens up a lot of possibilities, without limiting anything. Recently, I considered a bunch of new rules for firearms, trying to better represent the way guns really work. I wanted to do something similar with the gunslinger. The whole point of guns is that anyone can use them, so anyone should be a gunslinger. It shouldn’t be limited to fighters or rangers (though they might be better at it). Making “gunslinger” an archetype of fighter closes that door. Why can’t rogues shoot a gun, or sorcerers? The prestige class is the prefect answer.
Enter: the gunslinger prestige class!
