From publisher blurb:
Archaic Firearms is a hardware add-on for the Cepheus Engine roleplaying game.
Archaic Firearms provides you with a number of black powder firearms from Earth’s history, that can be added without fuss directly into your Cepheus Engine or 2D6-based SF RPG.
Included are a small number of Rules Options that referees may find add a little more verisimilitude to combats featuring black powder firearms in Cepheus Engine. The Tech Levels covered (TL 2-3) have the following approximate Terrestrial equivalencies: TL 2 Renaissance/Early Modern (1300 – 1700 AD), TL 3 Industrial Revolution (1700-1860).
The referee may use this book in several ways:
- Add detail to a TL 2 or 3 planet.
- Assist in creating a ‘Flintlock Fantasy’ setting.
- Assist in creating an historical RPG setting for Cepheus Engine, set somewhere between 1500 and 1860 AD.
