Description

The secret to the creation of automaton cores has since been lost to time, but each core contains a spark of consciousness from a particular individual, combined with a significant portion of planar energy. Although the bodies of automatons are wonders in and of themselves, the true technological marvels they bear are the automaton cores that power these constructs. The First Edition Gunslinger operated on points (“grit”) that you could generate through actions and then spend on special abilities, much like the Swashbuckler operates on “panache”. I also liked the Gears archetype “Sterling Dynamo” which is “hey, what if my character just had a robot arm? Of course, both sub-books also have tons of new gear, but the Gears side is naturally going to get the lion’s share of that, and the variety is what stuck out to me.

There is just a TON of materials with all kinds of new toys such as new guns, tools, and magic items that can help turn the tide of battle. Archetypes for Guns characters start out with, in my fevered opinion, the best of the lot: the Artillerist.

One of the pages was folded in, and 1 cm longer than the other pages when unfolded WITH THE TEST COLOURS still on the page. Now, unlike the Inventor, there WAS a Gunslinger class in First Edition, but this version’s been reworked and simplified a little.There are lots of backgrounds and archetypes to add a little tech flavor to all the pre-existing character options. They also have both mundane and exotic wheelchairs, because there’s been a sense in the community that players with disabilities still ought to be able to see themselves as heroes and play heroic versions of themselves as well. Now in a tool book you would think its just item lists, and there is that, but there is also a bunch of fluff to bring the new stuff into the old game. In fact, I once played a hunter in World of Warcraft where I literally sold off every firearm I came across because bows were the weapon of a TRUE hunter. The siege guns, on the other hand … well, the less I have to say about how excited I got, the better.

If I can try to intellectualize an ultimately emotional decision, I think it was some sort of mental corollary to Clarke’s Third Law. The "redo" of PF1's androids is already confirmed to be in Lost Omens Ancestry Guide coming out next month. Really, what gets me excited in the Equipment section is when it cranks the scale up into the industrial: namely, vehicles and siege equipment. As with other classes that have different paths, an Inventor character differentiates themselves through the creation of a signature item, their “innovation”, which can be either a custom weapon, a suit of armor, or a construct minion.Another nitpick is there are no new spells here, and I feel that's a reasonable, but somewhat annoying choice. However, the 2E Gunslinger is a little more straightforward, doing away with grit, and just relying on class feats and special abilities, known as “deeds”. Trains mean train heists mean the best session or arc your players will experience in their campaign. Tarda més a arribar del que diuen quan fas la comanda però pots anar fent seguiment del paquet xq l’enviament a Espanya és amb correos.

But the point of all of this is that’s a pre-existing bias I’ve had to get past over the years, and at least in First Edition, I regarded the Gunslinger with more than a little skepticism. On the other hand, it’s a little weird to have to go looking for the gunslinger class info out in the middle of the book, rather than up front where you’d usually expect it to be. It’s a class that’s brand-new in Second Edition, but I got a twinge of familiarity while reading it because it clearly draws some inspiration from the Mechanic class in Starfinder.

On the Guns side of the house, I liked the Revenant, a very Clint Eastwood-ian entity that was killed but decided not to stay dead because they still had scores to settle. That said, they do kinda shoot themselves in the foot by a) mentioning that they’ve already included WW1-era weapons in various APs and b) describing the mechanics of a hypothetical modern longarm. So for a class that sounded like it would run the danger of being one-note, it seems like there are a lot of different feels you can aim for. Now, if you’re just a group that plays published adventure paths, you may miss most of this or get a paragraph or two of it in handout form and move on.

The backgrounds come in both common and uncommon varieties, with the common ones applying your usual ability scores, skills, and lore, while the uncommon ones are a little more exotic in their effects (and generally require GM approval to use). Are you old enough to remember those commercials for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups where someone would actually get offended that someone “got chocolate in my peanut butter” and the other person got offended that the first person “got peanut butter in my chocolate” (and then they’d both pull their heads out of their asses and realize “peanut butter + chocolate” is a fundamental building block of civilized society)? There’s a bit of disparity lingering in my mind between the image of a pistolero using a gun-twirling fast-shooting fighting style and the mechanics of reloading in Pathfinder 2E, but I imagine that will settle one way or another once it comes in contact with the enemy—I MEAN, your players. But reading through Guns And Gears, I may be changing my tune, and not just because playing a leshy gunslinger whose nickname is “The Salad Shooter” would be Dad-Joke hilarious. The Kingmaker Companion Guide presents seven fully detailed companions inspired by the Kingmaker video game, ready to provide all sorts of assistance, each accompanied by a fully detailed personalized adventure to go along with their story.The Gadgets section of the Gears equipment feels like a bit of a whiff, though—they seem neat, certainly, but I’ve never been convinced that the Pathfinder adventurer economy really has room for disposable or one-use items. As you would expect, both the Guns and Gears sections of the books also present backgrounds and archetypes you can use to add a sprinkle of technological flavor to your more conventional characters.
