Firearm

A firearm is a device which projects bullets at high velocity through a controlled explosion, whether through magic or science. The firing occurs by the gases produced through rapid, confined burning of a propellant. This propellant is typically black powder or some magical force in the case of gun mages.

The firearm is widely used in Lorasia by gun mages and in Nora by tiefling artificers.

Tiefling firearms are often modified with an attached blade, oft times quite larger than the gun itself. These are known as gunblades.
