Hand of Fate (and Foot of Balrom)
Pis-tols and Gonnes
After the planar instability incidents near the end of the reign of Lord Darkness, things and people from other realms ended up in the Old Kingdom. Inevitably, people with ‘pis-tols’ and ‘gonnes’ ended up in a place where such inventions were never meant to be. Consequently, most users of firearms are from an alternate dimension, while the crude replicas made during the last few months of Darkness’ reign are unstable and highly unreliable. There is a growing niche for fake guns that use simple evocation and illusion magic to achieve the same effect as the real thing.
