    Default Bowguns and Other Weapons [PEACH]

    Monster Hunter is one of my favorite game series, one of the best things about it is the customizable weapons, so I decided to make some rules for some Monster Hunter weapons like the bowgun.

    A bowgun is a crossbow-like fire-arm that fires a variety of ammunition.
    There are three different classes of bowgun, and each is dependent on the overall weight of the weapon.

    Light bowguns weigh 29 lbs. or less. 1d6 dmg.

    Medium weigh between thirty and seventy lbs. 1d8 dmg.

    Heavy weigh upwards of seventy-one lbs. 1d10 dmg.

    Bowguns are constructed of three parts FRAME, STOCK, and BARREL.

    FRAME:the main body of the bowgun, houses the firing mechanism and magazine.

    STOCK:the butt of the weapon, stabilizes whilst firing.

    BARREL:the business end of the weapon, helps determine accuracy and may have a bayonet or shield.

    these three parts determine the weight, accuracy, crit range, usable ammunition, and range.
    In the next post I'll be listing generic versions of in-game parts so you can build your very own bowgun. Feel free to make price suggestions, amongst other advice.

    Other weapons possibly
    Is anyone here a monster hunter fan, if so which weapons would you like statted the most? I was thinking hunting horn, longsword or switch-axe.

    "a Small Barrel Bomb(+) explodes on an Initiative count 5 lower than the count on which it is placed. If this coincides with creatures' turn(s), each may take a standard action or a move action before it explodes. If they attempt a full-round action, it explodes half-way though this. For example, halfway through a full attack, interrupting a spell with a full-round action casting time or halfway along the movement of a run or charge action"

    Small barrel bomb: a small explosive charge with a self-lighting fuse, just set it and forget it! 2d6 fire dmg 10ft. radius.[ingredients: small barrel, fire herb]

    Small barrel bomb+: a small high-power explosive charge with a self-lighting fuse, just set it and forget it! 4d6 fire dmg 10ft. radius.[ingredients: small barrel bomb, gunpowder]

    Barrel bomb L: A large explosive charge, you have to hit it to detonate it.5d6 fire/force dmg (half of the damage results from the force of the explosion, and is therefore not subject to fire resistance or immunity) 20 ft. radius[ingredients: large barrel, gunpowder]

    Barrel bomb L+: A large high-power explosive charge, you have to hit it to detonate it. 7d6 fire/force dmg (half of the damage results from the force of the explosion, and is therefore not subject to fire resistance or immunity) 30 ft. radius [ingredients: Barrel bomb L, gunpowder, shrapnel]

    There's no reason to stat the hunting horn, 3.5 already has the bard. Truthfully, I'd like to see the hammer.

    Nya! But it could give boni for Perfomance Checks and.......stuff. The Hammer is just various clubs with enchantments. However, I would like to see what could be done with the hammer.

    I would love to see a Gunlance, one of my favourite weapons of Monster Hunter F2 (particularly against Basarios. Set bomb next to resting beastie, activate Wyvern's Fire, laugh maniacally, start running or guarding because I spent too much time laughing and not enough time getting out of range of its charge).

    Mmmm. Make sure you use 2 Large Barrel Bomb+'s and the best Gunlance you can get, fire, and guard. Scratch the HH, someone needs to make a Gunlance!

    Well, of course. And on that train of thought, we need Barrel Bomb stats, too! Got to love the look on something's face when you throw a rock at the barrel in front of them and they realise what it is. Kaboom, crispy fried wyvern, crunchy bits available in a twenty foot radius!

    Also, to actually contribute, maybe change the Para and Sleep S to reduce the duration by one round for each time a particular creature is effected in one encounter, I'm fairly sure that was in the games. Spamming Para S or especially Sleep S could be... problematic, otherwise. Sure, most things don't last long enough to get in more than five, maybe six, shots, but anything that does can be easily paralyse-, or sleep-, locked, though the low save helps (particularly with anything that lasts long enough).

    Just a quick question: What does the "S" indicate in the ammunition types? They all have it.


    Debby
    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    I've got a red pen and I'm not afraid to use it.

    I've gotten a (very ) short play of MH2P on a friend's system, and I own MHTri, and I must say, I've wanted to convert stuff to DnD stats too. Except I wanted to create the critters. Maybe as a fun project someone could make an "MH20".

    Uhhh... If your going to make other weapons, I'd say the Gunlance, switchaxe, and possibly hunting horn are unique enough to make , and the Greatsword and hammer are just plain huge enough that any existing weapons like them are different enough that you could make them.

    Hmm. What you have...
    You might want to clarify, besides "how many you can load", if the amounts stack, or if you can load X into one part, but not into one of the others, you can load it at all or not.

    I'm... I'll admit it, NOT a bow-gunner on the game. I've only a few minutes experience with a bow-gun, and That's when I was deciding on which weapon best suits me. I'm a hammerer.

    So I can't really tell how much is wrong (if any) for the bowgun, compared to the games it comes from, really. Sorry, I can't help much. big wall of text, little help. sorry.

    The "S" stands for shot. Consider yourself informed!
    Bombs you wanted? you have them!

    Bombs, right.

    Needs clarification. I think better wording for "fire/force" as a damage type would be "half of the damage results from the force of the explosion, and is therefore not subject to fire resistance or immunity", or something like that. Maybe "a creature must have resistance or immunity to both force and fire damage to reduce damage from a Large Barrel Bomb(+). For example if a creature has fire resistance 10, but no way to reduce force damage, they take full damage. If they have immunity to fire damage but only reduce force damage by 10, they only have the damage reduced by 10", but I advise the former.

    What is "half a round" supposed to mean? That it blows up halfway between the end of one of your turns and the beginning of the next? That you can take a standard action or a move action before it explodes? I'd advise wording it as "a Small Barrel Bomb(+) explodes on an Initiative count 5(?) lower than the count on which it is placed. If this coincides with creatures' turn(s), each may take a standard action or a move action before it explodes. If they attempt a full-round action, it explodes half-way though this. For example, halfway through a full attack, interrupting a spell with a full-round action casting time or halfway along the movement of a run or charge action". Much clearer, if I do say so myself. Otherwise good.
