Hey guys thought i would share my progress in regards to my space opera/cyberpunk setting Alpha Draconis. Todays discussion are Legacy Weapons.

This idea stems from a variety of FPS games and mass effect. I really dont need a vast multitude of guns just maybe a dozen or so standards. Guns that are a staple of the setting.

With that in mind i decided to use 6 categories of weapons

pistols
smgs
rifles
shotguns
heavy weapons
Uniques

Uniques are specialized versions of the other 5 categories (a named weapon if you wilLet me know what you think

That's kinda what I do with Deadlands. You can call your pistol or rifle whatever you like, but I'm not having the slightest hand in keeping track of different ammo types and whatnot.

I can see why the Ronin has become the standard. +2 shooting for 2d6+2 AP 1 (average 10 AP 1), at rifle-length engagement ranges, with an 8 round magazine (24 shots if you drop the +2 shooting and damage). That's excellent performance from a sidearm, especially for 225.

The Arc pistol is good for what it does. Good power, short range, but nasty against targets with wiring. 500 is a steep price, but might be the only thing that can save you from Kusanagi.

The Crusader is ... not good. Inside close combat range it's decent (+2 shooting for 3d4 damage - average 9), but you're probably better off pulling out a sword (Str+d8, Fighting with a +2 versus Unarmed Defenders, not to mention Wild Attack, etc). This is especially true when it's twice the price of the M6 Ronin, with the same magazine size, shorter range increments, and half-again the weight. Paying twice as much for half the gun is ... not good.
If it did regular shotgun damage (1-3d6, 3d6 average 12) then it would be competitive as a close-range back-up weapon. Powerful, but designed for situations where you only get one shot.

For the Crusader i was trying for a Taurus Judge type weapon. It shoots the the equivelant of a .410 round. So it is more of a hi-powered Hold Out

The ronin was inspired by the B&T TP9
