I've been flipping through Ultimate Combat, and I'm really interesting in the addition of early and advanced firearms. I've been interested in building a musketeer at a higher level than first, but I've been trying to figure out how one would start with an advanced firearm like a revolver or rifle (rather than a musket or pistol).
A musketeer is given a gun from his order, but also has the
Gunsmithing feat, so I'm a bit confused:
- Would the Musketeer just asked for an advanced firearm?
- That doesn't seem to make a lot of sense given how much an advanced firearm costs. I'm not even sure how starting with a gun is fair considering a musket ordinarily costs 1500gp.
- Would the Musketeer just craft an advanced firearm, and ignore the one given by his order?
- That also doesn't seem to make sense, as the point is that his gun is a sort of focus.
How would a musketeer obtain advanced firearms in this situation?
